The StormTracker forecast is settling down, but also cooling down for all the St. Patrick’s Day festivities. The luck of the Irish will smile upon the Bluegrass this weekend. Times of sunshine and clouds will be around both Saturday and Sunday. As for all the festivities in Lexington tomorrow for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival, the day starts off cold in the upper 20s. Wind chills will be in the lower 20s. By start time of the parade in the early afternoon the sun will be out, but temperatures will only be in the low 40s. You’ll want to dress in layers especially as you’re popping in and out of the shade of the buildings downtown.​

Sunday will be slightly milder with highs in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees. A few more clouds will also be around as a moisture-starved cold front digs through Kentucky. Dry and cooler than normal temperatures will linger through most of next week. High temperatures will hover right around 50 degrees through the final days of winter. After the Vernal Equinox on Wednesday it will start to feel more spring-like again.
