Our focus now turns to the potential of record lows tonight. Many areas may wake up to thermometer readings below zero.
Pesky showers and a few thunderstorms will continue to exit the area this evening. Some much dryer air will come rolling into Kentucky during the overnight and into your Saturday. This will likely be a brief run through the dry air.
A frontal boundary is working across Kentucky right now. It's the main trigger for our showers and thunderstorms that we have been seeing today. It will also be responsible for the big weather change that we have for most of your weekend. While the air behind this front won't cool us down significantly, it will certainly make for a pleasant couple of days. Low humidity with highs on Saturday in the upper 70s is hard to beat for this part of June.
There is a solid chance that we'll get to some record breaking lows early on Saturday morning. At this point I think we flirt with the low in Lexington. It was set back in 1933 at 47 degrees. That's a pretty strong record! However, this air-mass has all kinds of potential. I am sticking with a low of 48 for early that morning, but I wouldn't be surprised at all to see the record low reached. For it to be beaten it has to get to 46 and that is some pretty chilly air. Only time will tell!
Next week it is back to the same old song and dance. The heat will begin building back into Kentucky and so will the rain chances. A lot of those will be brought to you by the heating of the day types of showers and storms. So anyone of the storms that gets fired up nest week could bring heavy rains to isolated locations.
Stay with WKYT for all the latest.
