Shoo wee, what a difference a week can make! This time last week we were roasting with temperatures in the upper 90s. The hottest days of the year followed into the start of this past week. Lexington hit 99° (!!) last Monday. Meanwhile yesterday and today have been a preview of fall. We'll keep with the September-like theme overnight with mostly clear skies and lows near 60°.

We'll find some middle ground over the coming days as highs hold steady in the lower 80s. Muggier conditions and storm chances will also be along for the ride. That all begins tomorrow. A stalled out front that kept the muggies away today will wiggle back northward Sunday. Skies will go partly sunny and isolated storms will start popping up during the afternoon. Storm chances will ramp up Sunday night into Monday as a cold front draws in. Thunderstorms will be likely to start to new week, which will help the growing drought situation. Activity lingers through late Tuesday. The remainder of the week and into next week will be dry with tolerable humidity. Perfect conditions for the Cats home opener!
