LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – It was a bleak end to the working week in the Commonwealth, with cool showers for much of the day. But there are some good news in the short-term forecast.
Tonight, look out for the sky to finally realize when calm and cool conditions come out. The lows cool off when temperatures drop to the mid-30s.
The start of your Easter weekend looks good. So much needed sunshine wins most of the day, while heights rise in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
The short stint of the beautiful weather is just that … short. On Saturday afternoon and evening the clouds roll fast, before the rain chances come back too late. Scattering is continued overnight and in parts of Easter morning. The same front, which brings the rain, pushes through, before it goes on Sunday morning on South Kentucky on the brakes. This could lead to a dreary and wet day with better chances for showering during Easter. Outside the rain opportunities, look for cloud cover to win with cool temperatures in the upper 40s.
As soon as we get rid of a system, another system comes into the Easter Vigil. The models have become cooler with this setting and are likely to bring rain and snow opportunities into the state. If we see any accumulation of snow, it is probably limited to raised and grassy surfaces, but it is possible!
The next week will show more ups and downs in the weather pattern. Highs Monday rebound in the 50s before 70 arrive on Tuesday. A strong cold front moves on Tuesday afternoon, when we could see heavy rain and a few strong storms. The forecast will be cool with more rain chances until the middle of the late week.
