Steam and some storms on the way

Good Friday to one and all. We are heading into the weekend with an increase in steamy temperatures and possible storms. This looks to be a trend that will continue through much of next week.

Temps today are generally in the middle 80s for most of central and eastern Kentucky. Skies will stay partly sunny with a little more humidity than Thursday and that could… COULD… Lead to an isolated storm or two. Most of that action is likely to be just to our west. Here’s regional radar just in case:

A better shot for a few showers and storms rolls in from west to east later tonight into Saturday. This is on the leading edge of the true steamy air pushing in from the southwest. Any storm that’s out there can produce some very heavy rains:

Temps range from the upper 80s to low 90s in many areas. That temperature trend looks to carry us into the first half of next week. This is a true steam bath of an atmosphere.

A few showers and storms will be noted, especially as a system drops in from the northwest by the middle of next week:

Temps will come down several degrees by the middle and end of the week, but this isn’t a pattern likely to turn cool anytime soon. As a matter of fact, I think we are going into a warmer than normal setup likely to carry us through much of September! It may take a hurricane or two to knock this pattern out for good.

Have a fantastic Friday and take care.
