Showers and storms are out of here and this weekend will be our first fleeting taste of the fall season that's just around the corner. We'll start it off Friday with mostly sunny skies and a northerly wind that will continue to pump much cooler, drier air into the Ohio Valley. Highs will struggle to hit the low 70s this afternoon , roughly 10 degrees below average for this time of the year! A big ridge of Canadian high pressure takes over this weekend and that means quiet weather through the beginning of next week.
The combo of clear skies and cooler air also will lead to a very chilly Saturday morning (near record lows) with Lexington's first low in the 40s since last May! After dropping to the mid 40s overnight we're in the upper 60s and sunny Saturday- another unusually cool but absolutely beautiful September afternoon. If you're tailgating out at Commonwealth Stadium tomorrow you may want to take a sweatshirt, especially if you're out there late in the morning before kickoff. Our high pushes east and the wind shifts late in the weekend, expect highs Sunday in the mid to upper 70s with more sunshine and highs closer to 80 Monday/Tuesday.
