Watching for scattered storms

Good Wednesday, everyone. Steamy weather continues across Central and Eastern Kentucky, and the trend continues into Labor Day weekend. With an increase in humidity, our threat of  scattered storms will go up just a bit.

Highs Wednesday through Friday will hit the upper 80s in most areas. We should see a slightly increased threat of scattered afternoon and evening boomers. Any storm will be a slow mover that could put down some very heavy rains.

Planning on heading to Commonwealth Stadium this Saturday to watch the Cats? Here’s the early call on what to expect:

  • Steamy conditions will be likely for tailgaters, with temperatures in the mid- and upper 80s. It will feel like the low 90s at times.
  • Isolated showers and storms will be possible.
  • Kickoff temps should be in the low 80s, with readings in the 70s by the second half.

A scattered storm or two will be possible over the rest of the Labor Day weekend, with highs remaining in the steamy mid- and upper 80s.

A cold front slowly moves our way early next week and could bring an increase in showers and storms:

Make it a great day and take care.
