LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - After enjoying a decent weekend across the Commonwealth, all eyes are on the workweek ahead as showers, thunderstorms, and even another big cool-down make their way in.

Temperatures will be on the cool side this evening, with dry conditions continuing. Skies will stay mostly clear with a few clouds around and light to moderate winds. We’ll fall through the 50s and into the 40s late this evening before falling further through the overnight hours.

Early Monday morning, temperatures will begin the day in the upper-30s and lower-40s. Clouds will increase across our region throughout the day, with isolated chances for showers through the afternoon and evening hours. Between any rain chance, we’ll still have plenty of dry time in the forecast, with highs reaching into the upper-50s and around 60 for some.

Showers and thunderstorms will increase more into Tuesday as the first of two systems move through. Some of these showers will be heavy with gusty winds, but the stronger storm threat will come with round two on Wednesday when a cold front pushes through for the afternoon and evening. At this time, it appears we may be on the lower end of the severe threat, but that could still change over time, so we’ll keep you updated. Either way, you can expect strong winds and possible hail in some of these storms on Wednesday. After the cold front moves through, temperatures will crash, with highs falling through the 50s and even into the 40s. The end of the week will also feature scattered rain chances as wraparound moisture from the low-pressure system drives in. With temperatures being cold, we can’t rule out some wintry mix trying to get in there.
