A Flash Flood Warning is now in effect for much of the Lexington metro. High water issues are likely through the evening.
The weekend looks wonderful across Kentucky. Highs will likely run into the upper 70s with even a few low 80s trying to creep into the region. The point of this weekend should be to take care of anything you can outside. With plenty of sunshine, it should help out tremendously!
The pattern will become much more active heading into next week. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will begin on Monday. It could be a very eventful time. The chance of strong or even severe storms continues to look impressive. These storms could produce strong winds, hail, and even tornadic activity.
The threat isn't only for Monday. We'll track another wave of energy for Tuesday and even into the early morning hours on Wednesday. These storms will have the same characteristics as the Monday night system. It's actually all part of a big spinning low that will keep moisture rolling in our direction all through the beginning of next week.
The flow will eventually change by late next week. That means cooler temperatures will come calling. Rather than getting a set-up ripe for showers and storms, we'll have one with cooler air and just plain showers. Temps drop from 70s early in the week to 50s for daytime highs.
So the moral of the story... enjoy this weekend!
