Good Sunday, everyone. Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial kickoff to summer, but Mother Nature seems to be getting a jump on things. Temps are steamy this weekend and this is a trend that takes us through the rest of the month. Unfortunately, a few storms look to crash in here.
Let’s start with today and look ahead. Highs are generally 80-85 for much of central and eastern Kentucky. High humidity levels make it feel even a little warmer than that. And, of course, you can’t have a summer pattern without a few thunderstorms.
Here are your tracking toys for this Sunday:
This isn’t all day stuff, but some hit and run storms may crash a few cookouts. Have that backup plan to be safe.
What does the week ahead hold? Let’s break it down for ya:
- Memorial Day will feature highs in the low and middle 80s with even more humidity. That will lead to a heat index around 90. A stray shower or storm will also be noted.
- This pattern looks to persist through most of next week. That means more warm and muggy air.
- Highs are generally in the 80s with lows in the 60s. Sure sounds like summer to me!
- With the warm and muggy air will come the daily threat for a few showers and storms. This isn’t widespread stuff, but we will see a few boomers each day.
Have a great Sunday and take care.
