HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - The weather is absolutely gorgeous across the region to close out the work week, but you may need the umbrella at times this weekend.

Tonight through Saturday night

If you have any plans to head to the World Chicken Festival in London or any high school football games around the mountains, the forecast is looking pretty good. Clouds will start to increase through tonight, but, overall, we stay calm and comfortable. A stray shower can not be ruled out, but most of us are dry. Low temperatures bottom out in the mid-50s, so not as cool as last night.

A cold front will bring higher rain chances to the mountains this weekend. Isolated showers are possible on Saturday under a mix of Sun and clouds. Will it rain all day? No, but you may need the umbrella at times. High temperatures will be warmer in the mid-and-upper-70s.

Into Saturday night, we stay partly cloudy. Again, isolated showers are possible. Overnight lows fall into the upper-50s.
