Chris Johnson's Forecast | Pesky storm chances hang around the forecast

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - It's been a much calmer day across the Bluegrass as conditions have remained dry. The cold front we've been talking about all week long is finally making its move across the state but it's still providing for storm chances. As we head into this evening, a few showers and storms will be possible along and south of the I-64 corridor with best chances showing up for southern Kentucky. While a few showers and storms remain possible overnight, most should stay dry with lows in the mid-upper 60's.

We'll wrap up the work week on a fairly nice note but we'll still hold onto those pesky storm chances. The aforementioned cold front continues its southward track into Tennessee before washing out. But that left over boundary will provide a spark for a few showers and storms, epsecially across southern Kentucky Friday. As soon as that system exits southward Friday afternoon, another cold front dives into town Friday evening. Once again, this brings the chance for some showers and storms. The good news is this will not be a washout, just hit and miss activity. Otherwise, highs Friday are warm with thermometers in the mid 80's.

It's the same old song and dance as we head through the weekend. Afternoon showers and storms are possible each day as highs climb into the low-mid 80's. While no severe storms are expected, some storms that go up could become strong while bringing heavy rains, gusty winds, and lightning. Warm and muggy highs in the low-mid 80's can be expected through much of next week as storm chances hang around each day. More widespread rain and storms look possible towards next late-week as a cold front takes aim at the region.
