Our January warm spell continues but so do our rain chances. Expect mostly cloudy skies, scattered showers, isolated t-storms and highs in the mid to upper 50s Thursday with the heaviest rain staying west of Lexington. As a slow moving warm front lifts into the Commonwealth overnight we'll see another round of showers and stray storms late Thursday night into Friday with lows around 50 and Friday's highs in the low to mid 60s!
As low pressure pulls out of here Friday night a brief break from the rain will couple with a surge into the mid to upper 60s Saturday, near record high territory. It will be unbelievably warm and breezy but a late weekend cold front will put an end to our balmy interlude... more showers and storms are on the way Sunday. With repeated rounds of wet weather on the way we'll have to watch for heavy rain and minor flooding over the weekend. After a late weekend cold front sweeps through highs will fall from the 60s to the 40s early next week as much colder air takes over.
