Cooler weather moving in

A line of showers and a few thunderstorms continues to work southeast this morning and will clear out of the state by the early afternoon.

A few clouds may hang around for a short time after. Depending on how soon they break, will determine just how high temperatures are allowed to climb. Highs this afternoon will be in the mid 60s, and once that clearing takes place it’s shaping up to be a pretty nice day overall!

Tonight, another cold front is poised to drop into the Commonwealth. This will bring another round of potential showers our way before Midnight, along with a quick drop in temperatures. We will go from the mid 50s around 11pm to upper 30s/low 40s by the time you wake up in the morning.

Needless to say this is much cooler than our “seasonable” average for May. The average high for today is 73 with a record of 92 from 1896. Sunday night into Monday, some areas could be pushing record low temperatures, with the possibility for some patchy frost.

If you hate the cold, a warm up is on the way! Temperatures will return to the 70s, and even 80s by the middle of the week.

Here’s an update on where we stand as far as rainfall goes: So far this month Lexington has received over 3.77” of rain. That is over 2” above the average for this time of year. Since January first, that number rises to 19.97” of rain, a surplus of 4.25”.
