Freezing or frosty mornings aren’t that out of the ordinary for this time in April. Lexington’s average last frost doesn’t occur until the end of this month. That’s why we always say wait to plant until after Derby, if not Mother’s Day. We are tracking overnight temperatures to fall into the upper 20s and lower 30s for most of central and eastern Kentucky. With that in mind, most will be under a Freeze Warning tonight. A Frost Advisory has been posted for areas southwest of Lexington.

Following the brisk start, Friday’s highs will bounce back into the upper 50s. High pressure will take the reigns of the weather story, which will bring back more sunshine and help warming us back up. Temperatures will continue to gradually warm up through the weekend and much of next week. Speaking of the weekend, conditions are looking fairly uneventful. That’s certainly music to our ears. We are tracking a mix of sun and clouds with seasonably cool highs in the lower 60s both Saturday and Sunday. A few rain showers may threaten Sunday night. More showers are expected to start the work week.
