LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Showers and a few rumbles of thunder move in to start the workweek, with chilly air staying around before a nice warm surge takes over later this week.

Dry and chilly conditions will continue through this evening and tonight. Temperatures are expected to fall back through the 40s and into the upper-30s for some. Even if areas don’t reach the 30s, breezy winds will make wind chill values feel even chillier tonight. Cloudy skies will also stay with us through tonight ahead of another system that moves into our region. Rain chances will begin to increase late tonight but won’t become widespread until the overnight hours.

Through the early morning hours on Monday, showers and a few thunderstorms will quickly move through our region, disrupting some of the commutes. The good news is that most of the rain will already clear out of parts of central and southcentral Kentucky by the later morning hours and then move out of eastern regions closer to noontime. Besides making for a wet start to the day, this cold front will keep our temperatures well below average. Highs by Monday afternoon are only expected to reach around 50 degrees for much of central Kentucky, with some mid-50s to the south.

A drier pattern takes over for most of the week as sunnier skies return. Another scattered storm chance could return on Thursday, but that is not looking too widespread of an event. After a cooler start to the work week, temperatures will also improve the deeper into the week we get. By the middle and latter half of the week, highs will reach the 60s and even 70s, and then by next weekend, we could very well run into some 80s territory.
