LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - While we wrap up a beautiful weekend, an active pattern is coming in for this workweek ahead as a front stall across our region.

A few scattered showers will be around through this evening mainly across southern and eastern Kentucky, but as we continue into tonight a cold front will start to drift in form the northwest. This will start to increase rain chances overnight mainly for northern and parts of central Kentucky. Temperatures will also be staying more on the “mild” side as low get into the mid to lower 50s. Gusty winds will also pick up at times with the cold front approaching.

By Monday, showers and thunderstorms will continue to increase across portions of central and northern Kentucky. These showers are with a cold front that moves in from the northwest and then stalls out across our region. Because of this front stalling, temperatures will vary Monday afternoon significantly with the mid to lower 50s across northern Kentucky to mid and upper 60s across the south. Southern Kentucky will also see fewer rain chances throughout the day, and some may even stay dry throughout the day.

Our pattern will stay active with more scattered showers and thunderstorms in the forecast on Tuesday and Wednesday before a brief break on Thursday. However, as we head into the end of the week and next week, another more potent cold front shows up in the forecast bringing back even more showers once again. Highs through much of the workweek will be in the 70s, but after next weekend’s cold front, it appears we could drop into another Fall chill.
