LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - *REMINDER* Don't forget to set your clocks back an hour Saturday night into Sunday morning as Daylight Saving Time ends at 2:00AM Sunday morning. Easiest way to remember: we "Fall" back an hour getting you an extra hour of sleep.
Some dense and patchy fog will be expected across our region to start out your Saturday morning with temperatures in the mid to upper 50s. Mostly cloudy skies will stick with us throughout most of the day with some areas seeing more sun. By this afternoon and early evening highs will reach around 70 across central Kentucky with breezy winds from time to time. We will also be dealing with some scattered showers and storms come through in the afternoon and evening so you may want to take your rain gear to the UK game this evening at Kroger Field.
Going into Sunday morning, we will start with another very mild day as temperatures begin in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Cloudy skies will continue with a few breaks in the afternoon, but gusty winds will last throughout the day. Highs by the afternoon will reach into the mid-70s with mostly dry conditions for the first half of the day. As we move into Sunday night things will start to change. A front will drive into our area bringing showers and thunderstorms into the overnight hours and beginning of Monday morning. These storms could potentially produce strong/damaging winds as well as heavy rainfall and frequent lightning, so be weather aware Sunday night into Monday morning.
Continuing throughout he beginning of the work week, this front will stall out across Kentucky. This will provide more rain chances throughout the first half of the week before it finally moves further south by the latter half. Temperatures for the beginning of the work week will be in the lower 60s, but once the front moves through then you can expect a big time cool down in our forecast. This could bring a few possible freezes by the end of the week and highs only in the mid-40s.
