LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Talk about a steamy start to the holiday weekend as temperatures climbed into the 80's for many spots. Not only was it warm and muggy, scattered showers and storm lit up the sky across the state and likely put a temporary damper on some outdoor plans. The good news is as we head into tonight, shower and storm activity should being to wind down. Partly cloudy skies prevail with lows in the upper 60's.
As we get into Sunday, look for a steamy day across the Bluegrass as highs climb back into the mid 80's. Factor in very muggy conditions, it will fill a lot like another summer day out there. Nothing new there! Outside of the warm conditions there will be a chance for a few isolated showers and storms, especially through the afternoon hours. Nothing severe is expected, but any storms that do go up will be capable of heavy rain, gusty winds, and lightning. Something to keep in mind for outdoor plans.
Looking ahead to Memorial Day, overall it looks fairly good. Highs climb into the mid-upper 80's as the humidity becomes more oppressive. There is a chance for a few showers and storms Monday afternoon but as of now, most look to stay dry.
By next mid-late week, the pattern turns a lot more active. Remnants of Alberto likely slide into town bringing gusty winds and heavy rainfall. Shower and storm chances stick around through late next week before conditions could dry out into the weekend. Highs through this period remain warm and above average with thermometers in the 80's.
