Heat Wave Won’t Last Long

Good Tuesday, everyone. Heat lovers, rejoice!!! Some real deal summertime heat and humidity is ready to take control of the pattern for a while. This settles in through the week and into the upcoming weekend, but storms and a cooler setup settle in next week.

Highs today are in the mid and upper 80s across the east with low 90s in the west.

Highs by Wednesday start to really heat up with near 90 east and 95 in the west. Temps from Thursday through Saturday are generally 90-95 for much of central and eastern Kentucky, with highs that MAY flirt with 100 in a few spots across the west.

Thu heat index will be an even bigger player with values from 100-110 possible.

What about the chances for a few storms in the coming days? Those chances are rather small, but I can’t rule out pop up stuff going up. There’s a chance out there today, too.

The threat for storms will then increase late this weekend into early next week…

That’s when a deep trough digs into the eastern half of the country, with much cooler air settling in. Check this out…

The European Model is also all over it. Here’s the run for Monday-Wednesday…

The CFS has a VERY cool 5 day period as we get ready to close the book on July…

No one pattern can truly take control of the pattern this summer, and I think that’s AWESOME! 🙂

Have a great day and take care.
