Protect your plants again tonight

Not as cold as last night, damage still possible.

It was an a-may-ingly cold morning. Lexington broke a nearly century's old record, and came up just short of the all-time coldest May temperature. This was only the third time that a 20-degree temperature has been recorded in the month of May.

Tonight will be cold, just not as cold as last night. Lows will range from the mid 20s in valleys to the mid 30s. Temperatures this cold this late in the season will impact any unprotected plants or crops. A frost advisory and freeze warning will be in effect through Sunday morning.

After a frosty start, Mother's Day won't be quite as cool with highs near 60°. The day will begin dry, then late-day there is the chance for a few showers. Temperatures will get knocked back into the 50s on Monday. There will be a steady warm up through the end of the week. It's like a switch will be flipped and all of a sudden it's May.
