Goof Saturday and welcome to the weekend! We have a super-steamy setup settling in across central and eastern Kentucky. This summer sizzle will be accompanied by a few showers and storms over the next few days, with a bigger increase on the way as we head into next week.
Temps out there today range from the upper 80s to low 90s with humidity levels really taking off. A cluster of showers and thunderstorms may move from west to east across the state, losing a little steam the farther east it gets. Here are your radars to track anything that’s out there:
Sunday is another hot and humid day with lows of high 80s and low 90s showing up. The sweat factor is super high because the humidity levels are going to be way up there. I can’t rule out a storm or two going up at some point.
Monday looks very similar in terms of temps and sky condition as we get ready for storms to increase by Tuesday and Wednesday. This increase in storms will happen as moisture returns from the Gulf of Mexico and combines with a system dropping in from the northwest:
That will knock the temps back down for the second half of the week.
The pattern beyond that continues to look fairly active:
While I continue to think the pattern skews warmer than normal through the rest of the month and into September, the latest Ensembles are trending in the opposite direction for the final week of August:
Have a great Saturday and take care.
