LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - While we will enjoy the first few days of official Spring on a nicer note, we’ll need to stay weather aware by the middle of the week as storms chances return with a cool down to follow.

We are kicking off the first official day of Spring on a pleasant note today, with highs reaching around 60 degrees. Now, this evening, those temperatures will drop back through the 50s and eventually end up into the 40s later tonight. While it will be a cooler feel, the good news is that dry conditions are staying around with mostly clear skies.

By Monday morning, it begins on another chilly note in the upper-30s and lower-40s. Fortunately, it’s another dry day with mostly sunny skies and light to moderate southerly winds. Dry conditions will last all day long, and temperatures will rise well above our average as highs reach the mid to upper-60s. Some areas of southern and southeastern Kentuck could even be around 70 degrees.

Our dry pattern continues into the beginning of Tuesday; however, storm chances will increase late in the day on Tuesday and last through early Thursday. These storms could pack a punch with heavy rain, gusty winds, and the possibility of some of them being strong. Behind this system, a big cooldown will take over with isolated to scattered chances remaining in the forecast. Highs will go from the 60s Wednesday to potentially the 40s for the end of the week and into next weekend.
