Good Saturday and welcome to the weekend. Steamy temps and scattered thunderstorms are the name of the weather game as we get set to close out the month of June. With the 4th of July holiday just around the corner, it looks more of the same, with an increase in the thunderstorm threat.
Let’s begin with where we are today and trudge forward. Highs are back into the upper 80s to around 90 for much of central and eastern Kentucky. Throw in the humidity and the heat index tops out from 90-95 degrees.
Just like the past few days, thunderstorms go up this afternoon and evening and could put down torrential rains. A few of the storms may briefly be strong or severe. Here are your Saturday storm tracking tools:
Additional showers and storms will be noted on Sunday and Monday, but this action may try to dive in from the northwest:
Some of those storms could bring a better wind damage threat to the region.
The setup for our 4th of July week will keep the rounds of showers and storms going across the entire region:
Obviously, that kind of setup can cause some disruptions of some of our Independence Day celebrations throughout the bluegrass state.
Behind all that, there continues to be a signal for a trough digging into the eastern half of the country:
That would bring some steam relief to the region into the second week of July.
Make it a great day and take care.
