We have one more unusually warm day to take advantage of before Mother Nature pitches a changeup midweek! Tuesday will end up mostly to partly sunny with well above average highs in the upper 60s to low 70s thanks to a breezy southwest wind. Lexington's record high Tuesday is 78 degrees set back in 1990. Expect increasing clouds overnight with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms developing mainly after midnight as a cold front drops southeast across the Ohio River valley and a wave of low pressure tracks in from out west. Widespread showers and scattered t-storms are likely Wednesday as the low grinds east, watch for locally heavy rain and lightning- the good news- the chance for severe storms is low with this round. A gusty west to northwest wind will whip late Wednesday behind the departing low (30-40+ mph gusts) and we'll see temperatures crashing from the 50s to 40s to 30s as much colder air invades. A round of snow showers are possible on the back end of the storm with minor to no accumulation expected Wednesday evening. Thursday morning lows will plummet to the mid teens with Thursday afternoon highs struggling to hit the mid 30s. Fortunately it will be a brief shot of cold air- highs Friday and into the weekend will be back in the 40s & 50s with another chance for rain to snow showers late in the weekend.
