LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - As a cold front works through the area Sunday evening, Fall air will return in behind it with a frost potential in the forecast again as well.

After a beautiful afternoon, we will track isolated to scattered showers moving across the Commonwealth from the northwest and to the southeast. Better rain chances will primarily stay in northern and eastern parts of the state. Temperatures will start cooling quickly after this front as well for the evening ahead with 60s turning into 50s and then 40s tonight. We could even see areas around central Kentucky in the 30s overnight with a potential for patchy frost if we clear out the clouds and calm the winds.

By Monday, the cold front will be mostly out of southeastern Kentucky, with drier weather returning to the forecast once more. Temperatures will also be on the chilly/cold side in the mid to upper 30s across much of the Commonwealth. Under the right conditions, these temperatures could produce some patchy frost again for some. Throughout the morning and afternoon, clouds will be clearing out of our region, leading to better skies by the later afternoon and evening hours. On Monday, highs are expected to only reach the lower 60s with a few areas struggling to get out of the upper 50s.

We keep our dry trend continuing throughout much of this workweek ahead. A weaker cold front looks to arrive by the middle of the week, but models are struggling with hardly any rain chances associated with that front, so for now, I’m keeping it on the lower end as dry air dominated the region. Throughout the week, highs will also be returning to the mid to upper 60s most days with some potential 70s returning on Wednesday before the front moves through.
