Good Sunday to one and all. Our historic heat wave rolls on across the bluegrass state with record setting highs not seen since the dust bowl. The heat continues today as the threat of thunderstorms increases. That storm threat should carry us into the upcoming 4th of July holiday.
Lexington set a record high of 103 degrees Saturday and that smoked the old record of 100 set back in 1936. The past three days have been 102, 102 and 103. This is the hottest three day stretch since the dust bowl year of 1936.
Can we make it four 100 degree days in a row? That’s possible today, but an increase in scattered storms may spoil the party and I doubt anyone would complain. If we get enough sunshine… then another record high of 100 or better is likely.
Any storm that blows up today may be on the strong side and that’s something to watch. Speaking of storms… we have the threat for some much needed storms over the next several days!
Let’s track all of today’s action:
Have a great Sunday and take care
