As expected Tuesday was somewhat of a mixed bagged day with rain showers for about half of the region north to south, if you live in southern Kentucky it rained all day but in northern Kentucky in only rained during the evening hours. Either way, everyone saw some precipitations. Today we’ll start the day off with cloudy cover but slowly thin out the clouds throughout the day.
Hope you were able to enjoy the amazing sunshine we had Monday! Why you ask? Because clouds have moved in overnight as an area of low pressure pushes towards the Bluegrass Region. Along with the cloud cover is a fair amount of rain showers. Lexington will be right on the rain line, this mean that about half of the viewing area, north to south, may not see rain today. It could be a case where if you have a friend in Richmond they have rain all day but Lexington just gets sprinkles.
A warm front pushed through Friday and has continued to bring summer like temperatures to the Bluegrass Region. Highs for Saturday has moved into the upper 70s to low 80s, unfortunately with the warm weather we do expect severe weather later tonight. The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted central Kentucky for a Slight Risk for severe weather, and a Marginal Risk for severe weather into eastern Kentucky.
A warm front has push north across the Bluegrass Region and brought a warm southerly flow. Temperatures have continued to climb all day with some spots reaching the low 80s. If Lexington does hit 80 degrees it will be the first time since October 21st 2019. Temperatures are expected to reach the low 80 for Saturday.
TODAY: 50% chance of rain. Mostly cloudy skies. Highs in the mid 70s. SATURDAY: 20% chance of rain. Partly skies. Highs in the upper 70s. SUNDAY:...
