Humidity joins the windy-and-warm party

Good Wednesday to one and all. This is a true taste of summer that we’re experiencing across Central and Eastern Kentucky. Highs continue to run into the upper 80s, and now increased humidity joins the mix. This will increase the sweat factor for the rest of the week and will help usher in a stormy pattern.

Highs today and Thursday will continue to run on the toasty side with upper 80s in many areas. Winds will be gusty and might approach 30 mph at times. Moisture levels will increase, and that means it might feel a bit muggy at times.

That might also touch off  an isolated shower or thunderstorm as early as Thursday. An increased threat of scattered showers and storms arrives Friday. Here’s the NAM:

The threat of thunderstorms will increase over the weekend as a strong cold front moves into the region by late Saturday into Sunday. Rounds of storms will become likely, and some of those might be on the strong side with very heavy rain.

Cooler air will then pour into the region by Monday. Check out how far below normal we might be by then:

GFSThe cooler air will last through the first half of next week, with a warm-up lurking for the second half.

Have a great Wednesday and take care.
