After the passage of last night’s cold front, temperatures dipped for today (sort of). We started the day at 60 in Lexington, and finished in the upper 50s for this afternoon after dipping down into the upper 40s briefly. Things remain calm and mild this afternoon with not a blip on the radar and only a cirrus shield overhead.
Nice weather will continue for a few days thanks to a high pressure pattern. We had bits of sunshine today, but more is expected over the beginning of the work week as the atmospheric pressure continue to build. Monday and Tuesday will be very similar in the weather with cold morning starts and mild afternoon finishes. Plenty of sunshine will go with that pattern. Things change midweek with the next precipitation maker. A large storm system which will cross the southern half of the US will begin lifting a warm front in the region around Wednesday. Despite the extra cloud coverage, temperatures will soar into the 60s and 70s as we’re getting into Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. Rain and storms are looking fairly likely Thursday before the cold front that will deliver another winter crash in temperatures.
