Storm threat increases by the weekend

Good Wednesday, everyone. Temps continue to run normal to slightly above normal across Central and Eastern Kentucky, Yet, everybody is talking about how hot the weather is this week. You can thank the humidity for that, because it feels much hotter than what the thermometer shows.

Highs today will be back into the mid- and upper 80s for the area. A spotty 90 is possible, and with the humidity, it will feel as if it’s in the low 90s. Get ready to sweat again.

We will watch a weak front drop into the region this evening, and that is likely to bring in a broken line of storms. Here’s your network of radars to track any boomer that goes up:

The pattern doesn’t change much through the rest of the week into the big holiday weekend. Isolated storms will be with us through Saturday, with highs hovering in the upper 80s and close to 90.

A cold front then dives in by Labor Day and will bring a greater threat of showers and thunderstorms:


The greatest threat of showers and storms will come late Sunday and Monday. Cooler and drier air will then filter in for the middle of next week.

The storm chance is looking a little better than the past few days, so we will keep a close eye on that one.

Make it a great day and take care.
