Very slow moving showers and thunderstorms will move into our area overnight and Sunday. The potential for flooding will be heightened in southern and eastern Kentucky.
The cold front that swept through the region last night is pushing through eastern Kentucky Sunday morning, carrying remnants of a few showers. Behind the front, cooler air is settling in, preparing us for a cool start to Mother’s day.
Temperatures Sunday afternoon will slowly rise into the mid to upper 50s across the state, with a chilly breeze at times out of the northwest. While a few clouds may linger, the sun will be shining for much of the day. No rain chances to speak of, so you don’t have to worry about any outdoor plans.
Sunday night, thanks to clear skies and wind relaxing, thermometers will tank. By Monday morning, temperatures will be in the mid to upper 30s, with the potential for a few areas of patchy frost. This is a good night to cover or bring in any sensitive plants, or pets!
Some areas could push record low temperatures for this time of year. The all time record low for this far into Spring in Lexington is 32 degrees.
A warm front will head our way early into next week, bringing back the 70s for highs on Wednesday. For the end of next week, we’re cranking up the heat even more, with highs in the 80’s both Thursday and Friday. But with the warmth comes a chance for more showers and thunderstorms starting on Thursday and carrying us into the weekend.
