Good Monday, folks. We’re getting closer and closer to saying goodbye to one of the wettest months on record for Lexington. April has been very soggy, and we probably have a few more drops to go through before we close the door on the month. The bigger story for the remaining days of the month will be the chilly air.
We’ve been colder than normal for the past week, and that looks to continue through this week. Even with sunshine out there Monday, highs will be only in the upper 50s and low 60s for most areas.
Patchy frost is possible Monday morning and again Tuesday. Clouds will begin to increase Tuesday as a southern storm develops. That might throw some rain our way Wednesday and Thursday:
Dry air will move in behind that for Kentucky Oaks Day on Friday. Highs look to run in the 60s with sunny skies.
Saturday, Kentucky Derby day, continues to look good, with plenty of sunshine and highs hitting the 70s:
That looks to be the beginning of a pretty warm pattern for the first full week of May. The overall pattern favors warmth for much of the country:
Make it a magnificent Monday and take care.
