Chris Johnson's Forecast | Beautiful weather continues, blast of cold air on the way

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - What a great way to wrap up the work week as we had wall to wall blue skies and plenty of sunshine to go around. With highs in the low-mid 70's across the Commonwealth, it's hard to beat a Fall day like this one.

Not a lot changes with the forecast as we head into the first part of the weekend. Despite a cool start in the 40's once again, highs climb right back into the 70's Saturday afternoon under a mix of sun and clouds.

We'll notice some changes as we head throughout Sunday. Cloud cover starts rolling into town as our next rainmaker takes aim at the state. While most of the day is dry and highs climb into the mid-upper 70's, late day rain and storm chances become possible.

A developing low to our southwest will team up with a cold front from the northwest. Rain chances become likely Monday as the threat for heavy rain and gusty winds will be there throughout the day. Temperatures take a hit Monday as highs only reach the mid 60's before falling into the 50's for highs Tuesday.

A secondary cold front swings in on the heels of the first system while bringing additional rain chances and a cold blast of air Tuesday and Wednesday. Lows dip into the 30's Tuesday night as highs will struggle to get out of the 40's Wednesday. As of now, it looks like chilly highs hang around into next late-week with another cold blast arriving next weekend.
