The calendar says it's mid May, but our weather is acting more like mid March.
Tonight the sky has cleared out pretty well and with the wind dying down that sets the stage for some near record cold across the area. Lexington's record low is 38 and that's what we're forecasting. There will be some of the traditional cold pockets that could drop into the mid 30's and patchy frost is a concern.
Saturday will begin with sunshine, but we'll end up with a cloud/sun mix. A system passing to our south will bring more clouds and a rain threat across the southern half of Kentucky, but many of us will stay dry. Saturday's highs will only get to the low 60's.
Sunday will have more sunshine, but still on the cool side with a high in the upper 60's
