A cool front stalled over southern Kentucky will gradually lift north as a warm front Thursday followed up by a potent cold front Friday which will set the stage for major change in your Stormtracker forecast this weekend! Expect another beautiful but unusually warm afternoon Wednesday with mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. The southerly wind behind tomorrow's warm front will usher in even warmer highs with a surge to the mid to even brief upper 80s down south Thursday afternoon and a few afternoon showers possible. Moisture pooling over the Ohio Valley and an approaching cold front will lead to widespread showers and t-storms Thursday night into Friday. While severe storms aren't likely we may see a few strong storms with heavy rain and gusty wind. A good shot of rain would be very beneficial, Lexington has now gone 15 days with no more than a trace of rainfall. Much cooler air will rush in behind the front with highs tumbling from the 80s Thursday to the mid 70s Friday and bottoming out around a chilly 60 degrees Saturday as strong trough of low pressure digs in for the weekend and cools things down tremendously. Drier air and clearing skies will lead to our chilliest night yet this season as Saturday night's lows dip to the upper 30s to low 40s. With this range for overnight lows our first round of patchy frost could be on the way!
