LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - While temperatures have started to become milder this weekend, a true Spring-like surge is coming for the workweek ahead as temperatures run above average with plenty of dry days ahead.

Cool and then chilly conditions will be with us through this evening and tonight as our dry stretch continues. We’ll see temperatures fall slowly through the 40s this evening, and then after sunset, it’ll drop a bit quicker through the 30s. Skies will remain mostly clear through tonight, with light to moderate winds making wind chill values fall into the 20s overnight.

The mid to upper-20s will be around for most as we start the work week on Monday morning. The good news is that southerly winds will help turn a chilly morning into a much nicer afternoon and evening. Mostly sunny skies will be with us throughout the day, with dry weather continuing. Afternoon and evening highs are expected to reach the 50s, with some areas of southern Kentucky even making a run near 60.

We’ll continue our warming and dry pattern through the rest of the workweek. Highs will generally run in the upper-50s and lower-60s most days, with southern Kentucky seeing warmer temperatures than others. Thursday does bring a very slight chance for some precipitation, but I think most will stay dry with a bit cooler air moving into northern and eastern Kentucky. It’s not until next weekend that we see our next real rain threat in the forecast. Rain chances look to stay somewhat scattered Saturday and then more widespread by Sunday. Next weekend also has the potential to see highs near 70, so we’ll also be watching that.
