It has been a gusty day in the wake of last night's strong storms. Peak wind gusts have been in the 45 to 50 mph range. Lexington's Blue Grass Airport reported a peak gust of 47 mph late this morning. The wind will relax a bit tonight and tomorrow.
Monday will be the quintessential late March day - still breezy with sunshine and highs in the lower 60s. Then comes some not-so-great weather. A low will cut across the Deep South on Tuesday, funneling rain northward into the Commonwealth. The steadiest rain will fall across southern Kentucky with a rumble of thunder as possible. The clouds and rain will also cool things down. Tuesday's high will drop back into the lower 50s. The rain will quickly clear out, but the cooler air will linger. April begins with a high in the mid 50s. There will be plenty more time to outside and get some fresh air later in the week. The forecast stays dry until Saturday. Temperatures will recover, eventually climbing into the lower 70s by the weekend.
