Hot and dry weekend

It's status quo for the final weekend of summer.

A few showers have tried the squash our run of dry days. Activity will fizzle this evening, then we're just partly cloudy and warm-ish tonight with lows in the mid 60s. The weekend will be status quo - hot and dry with highs in the lower 90s. There will be a bit more sunshine on Saturday. Clouds will increase and the wind will pick up on Sunday ahead of a cold front that will arrive just in time for the start of fall.

This front will bring the best chance for rain that we have seen in weeks. It won't be much rain, but at this point we'll take it. As long as the stretch of consecutive dry days doesn't end today, this run of over three weeks without will be good enough for a top three finish in Lexington weather history. There will be another opportunity for showers next Thursday. Monday's cold front will also bring some relief in the heat department. Highs will drop ten or so degrees. Cooler days next week will feature highs in the upper 70s to mid 80s. It will be feeling pretty good to begin fall.
