Good Tuesday, folks. We have a few days of toasty temps upon us across the Bluegrass State. This small July preview isn’t going to hang around long, as stormy weather blows into town later this week.
Highs Tuesday will generally be in the mid- and upper 80s for much of Central and Eastern Kentucky. Skies will stay mostly sunny, so enjoy!

I like Tuesday’s weather so much, I’m going to replay it again for Wednesday.
If you’re wondering about record highs, those are probably safe. In 1962, Lexington was in the middle of one the hottest May periods on record, with daily highs in the low 90s. Ouch.
A few storms will start to fire up by Thursday, but a greater threat of storms will be on Friday and Saturday:
More storms will then develop Saturday night and Sunday as a cold front drops in from the northwest:
Any storm late this week into the weekend can be strong and put down heavy rainfall numbers.
Much cooler air then swings in behind our storm system for next week. Check out the cooler shots showing up on the GFS:
That also looks like a fairly active setup for showers and thunderstorms through the end of the month.
Have a terrific Tuesday and take care.
