Changes Follow The Heat

Good Wednesday to one and all. We are dealing with a mini heat wave taking control of the weather across the bluegrass state. This steamy setup isn’t going to last very long as a big pattern kicks in late this weekend into early next week. Things look to turn stormy and cooler than normal then.

There isn’t a whole lot left to say about the temps of the next few days. Highs out there today will generally range from 90 in the east to 90-95 in the west. Humidity levels start to kick in with a heat index several degrees higher.

Thursday through Saturday will be the hottest time of the summer with daytime highs from 90-95 for many, with some local middle 90s in the west. Heat index values can top 100 degrees during this time.

Isolated storms can go up over the next few days, and we will have to be on guard for some sneaky storms coming from the northwest later Friday and Saturday…

If those do fire up, it can keep our temps down from what I’m currently thinking. Given the summer trend, it wouldn’t be a stretch for something like that to happen.

Widespread showers and storms then kick in late this weekend and early next week as our pattern starts to change…

Heavy rain and strong storms are possible as we make the transition from hot to cooler than normal. Temps for much of the final week of July look solidly below average…

Have a great day and take care.
