Summer Steam Starts The Week

Good Monday, everyone. Oppressive humidity is back in the bluegrass state to start the week, with increasing amounts of storms to end it. All of this leads us into, what appears to be, more of the same for Labor Day Holiday Weekend.

Temps today are generally in the upper 80s to around 90, with some low 90s in the west. Humidity levels are the big story with a heat index well into the 90s with local 100 numbers showing up.

This comes in the closing days of a month that has been very nice in terms of temps, especially with the highs. Check out how weird the month has been for temps, with highs well below normal and lows above normal…

The year as a whole has been very wild, with record cold months evening out record warm months. Still, you can see how the lows have been much warmer than the highs…

Year to date has been normal across Kentucky, but in a very abnormal way.

Let’s get back to where we are this week. Tuesday will be very similar to what we have out there today, so take some breaks if you’re outside for any prolonged period of time.

Wednesday will find scattered showers and storms increasing as a cold front drops in from the northwest. This front will put the brakes on across the region and hang around through the end of the week and into, at least, the start of Labor Day Weekend. The end result will be more in the way of rounds of showers and storms…

Make it a good one and take care.
