LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - After a chilly and Winter-like week a warm up is headed our way just in time for Easter. As a warm front moves across the Commonwealth today clouds will increase with a few showers possible. Highs will reach the low to mid 50s with breezy winds. Tonight skies will stay mostly cloudy with a low of 33. Those temperatures are still below average for late March but temperatures will trend toward normal Saturday and Sunday.
This will be the warmest weekend we've had in quite a while as highs surge into the 60s Saturday. It is the best day to make outdoor plans as skies will be partly cloudy. Showers will be possible late Saturday night into early Sunday as a weak cold front passes. Unfortunately, the rain may linger into the afternoon hours on Sunday as the front pushes east.
We will be tracking another front Monday night into Tuesday that will bring more rain which may change to snow. Snow showers will be possible through Tuesday with highs staying in the 30s. It seems that Winter just doesn't want to let go. But the snow that we do see won't stick around long. Temperatures bounce back into the 50s by the end of the week.
