Good Sunday, folks. It’s a hot and humid end to the weekend across our part of the world. Luckily, the heat isn’t locking in for the long haul as cooler days are on the way. This pattern will likely be introduced by additional showers and thunderstorms.
Highs today will reach 90-95 degrees across much of central and eastern Kentucky. Throw in the humidity, and you can get the heat index to reach 100 degrees. Scattered thunderstorms will also be possible before the day is over:
A strong cold front moves our way on Monday, and will increase the risk of showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms can be strong or locally severe:
These storms may also pack enough rain to cause some local high water issues, especially in the eastern part of the state.
Much cooler air then starts to move in with readings going below normal for the middle and end of the week. That cooler than normal air may hang around into the 4th of July weekend. Here’s a look at the 5 day temperature departure from the Ensembles:
Enjoy your Sunday and take care.
