Lexington, Kentucky

Today we head off to Lexington, KY, which is where I was around 9 months ago watching one of my best friends get married! Weather was perfect that weekend, will this one be just as nice? Let’s find out!

At 1154pm EDT, the temperature at Lexington, KY was 72 degrees with light rain falling. The Lexington area is caught between a large high pressure area over the Northeast and a strengthening low pressure over the Northern Plains. This pattern has opened up the Gulf to abundant moisture streaming northward through the MS River Valley. There’s a weak mid-level disturbance sitting over the OH Valley as well, and this will help enhance scattered to widespread shower and thunderstorm activity throughout the afternoon and evening hours. Not much will change into Sunday other than the pattern shifting a bit to the east. That won’t help the Lexington area stay dry, however, as broad southwesterly flow continues directly over the area. Once again, scattered showers and thunderstorms will kick up for the afternoon hours. Storms shouldn’t be severe, but you can expect some brief torrential downpours should they move overhead. It’ll be a couple active days around the area!
