You asked for it, and fall delivered all at once. It was a chilly start to the day, and we never really shook the crisp feel today. There will be more brisk days to go around over the next eight days. Starting with this weekend… it won’t be perfect but there will be some time to enjoy the fall feel. We are tracking a batch of rain overnight, which will wrap up by morning. Clouds then decrease as high pressure briefly takes over. Temperatures will struggle a bit. We are only tracking highs in the low 50s(!!!) Saturday.

Rain chances will bookend the weekend as the remnants of Sergio from the Pacific track across the southern US.   Showers will move in throughout the day on Sunday and linger through Tuesday. The start of the new work week will feel more like November with afternoon temperatures in the mid 50s Monday and Tuesday. Once we clear the rain out, we are tracking the first widespread frost threat of the season with lows on Wednesday and Thursday in the mid 30s. This first frost potential comes right on cue as Lexington’s average low of 36° comes on October 14th. While the days may start off on the frosty side, afternoon temperatures will bounce back nicely into the 60s at the end of next week.
