Chris Johnson's Forecast | Big changes ahead as the winter feel returns

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Talk about a beautiful weekend across the Commonwealth and one that was much needed! Sunny skies won out for the duration of the weekend with highs in the 50's each day. Not bad at all!

Tonight, mostly clear skies continue as another cold one prevails. Thermometers drop into the mid-upper 20's for overnight lows.

Monday features increasing cloud cover as our next system takes aim at the region. Winds will be breezy at times throughout the day as highs climb into the low 50's. Clouds continue to thicken up through Monday evening as showers likely take over. Rain chances stick around overnight with chilly temperatures in the upper 30's.

We catch a brief break from the rain Tuesday morning as the cold front passes eastward. However, the low pressure associated with this front really wraps up within itself before diving southeastward into the Ohio Valley. This happens later Tuesday evening as much colder air crashes in and rain to snow showers take over late Tuesday night.

Temperatures only rebound into the 30's mid-week as snow showers crank up. The cold temperatures and snow chances hang around through late-week as the active pattern rolls on. In fact, more rain and snow chances look possible heading into the weekend with chilly highs in the 40's and overnight lows in the 20's. Regardless, old man winter appears to have a few more tricks up his sleeve.
