LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - It has been another day of abundant sunshine and cool temperatures. Today winds picked up and increased the wildfire threat across southern KY. Humidity is also very low causing officials to issue a Red Flag Warning from Rockcastle county and counties to the south and west. Overnight expect a few more clouds and a low of 31.
Thursday we will start to see a low pressure system move in from the south that will bring us scattered showers on Thursday. We continue to see a southward trend of this rain, so it appears that south of I-64 will have the best chance at rain with north of I-64 with only a slight chance of rain. All of the rain should work out of the area by Friday morning leaving us with a dry afternoon with partial clearing. With that said, it looks like everything is good to go for Keeneland's opening day.
Into the weekend we find temperatures above average. Highs in the mid to upper 60s on Saturday with mostly sunny skies. Sunday will show more clouds than sun with a slight chance of rain as highs climb near 70°. Early next week we are looking at temperatures in the lower to mid 70s! We could see a few thunderstorms to go along with the abnormally warm air.
