Toasty temps by the weekend

Good Thursday, everyone. We have finally pushed the storm train out of Kentucky and now we get set for toasty temps this weekend. This is a typical brand of summertime steam taking over, but storms and cooler air are waiting to flex some muscle next week.

Highs today are generally in the low 80s for most of central and eastern Kentucky. Humidity levels are way down, giving us a pretty nice overall day. Isolated showers and storms will be noted across the area early on, with a few lingering in southern Kentucky.

Here’s your regional radar to track the action:

Low temps by Friday will drop into the upper 50s and low 60s. Highs into the afternoon steam into the middle 80s with a partly sunny sky.

Temp from Saturday through Monday will be the hottest, so far. Highs across the western half of the state will generally hit 90-95 with upper 80s and low 90s for central and eastern Kentucky. Throw in the humidity levels and it will feel hotter than that.

By Sunday, showers and thunderstorms will start to show back up ahead of something tropical trying to show up in the western Gulf of Mexico…

The threat for showers and storms will quickly increase into the first half of next week. That’s when a cold front drops in from the northwest and tries to take some of that moisture riding up the Mississippi Valley…

Temps will come way down as a deepening trough digs into the eastern half of the country. Watch how quickly the heat ridge gets smacked down…

Have a terrific Thursday and take care.
