LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - While we end the week on a nicer note with dry weather and sunny skies, an active pattern kicks off next week with heavy showers that could lead to some localized flooding with gusty winds.

For your evening and night ahead, we will continue with our chilly temperatures in the 30s. Then we see a drop after sunset into the lower 30s and eventually 20s overnight. The good news is that we will keep our dry weather continuing into tonight with mostly clear skies, which will help temperatures drop more quickly, but winds will begin to lighten up through tonight as well.

For your weekend ahead, we will continue our dry pattern on Saturday and most of Sunday before another system moves in. Saturday morning will begin with temperatures in the lower 20s and frost on nearly all surfaces, and by the afternoon, highs will come in just under average in the mid to upper 30s with plenty of sunshine. Then by Sunday, clouds will increase throughout the day, with winds becoming gustier as another system moves in through the later afternoon and evening hour, bringing showers along with it. Highs on Sunday are expected to be much nicer in the mid-40s.

More active weather takes over for the beginning of next week, with gusty winds and heavy showers taking over Monday. Wind gusts could reach upwards of 40+mph at the surface, with several inches of rain bringing in a localized flood threat. This rain continues into the first part of Tuesday but will slowly move out and become more scattered to isolated throughout the day. Temperatures on the east side of the low Monday could spike into the upper 40s and 50s, but once it moves east, those temperatures plummet back into the 30s and lower 40s for the remainder of the week.
