Weekend Steam Then More Storms

Good Saturday, everyone. Heat and humidity continue to push into the state today and this will continue through Father’s Day. Once we get past the weekend, rounds of showers and storms look to kick back into high gear, with cooler air settling back in later next week.

Temps are taking center stage today with 90-95 in the west and upper 80s to around 90 in central and eastern Kentucky. Heat index numbers will be up a few degrees in the east, but will be way up in the west.

Can we fire up a popcorn storm? That’s a possibility…

Watch Ohio to see if we can get a storm or two to crank tonight and early Sunday. That could actually drop into the northeast.

Father’s Day looks hot with highs generally upper 80s and low 90s central and east, with low and mid 90s west…

Heat Index values will be much hotter.

Monday is another steamy day, but storms will try to go up during the afternoon and evening hours…

A cold front drops in from the north as tropical moisture works out of the western Gulf of Mexico. The end result will be an increase in showers and storms around here…

That front slows down with rounds of storms continuing Wednesday and Thursday…

The Canadian has much more of a wave of low pressure working across the state from late Wednesday through Friday, bringing an increase in our rains. It also follows that up with another system by the weekend…

The GFS just keeps throwing system after system at us through early the following week…

Have a great Saturday and take care.

    Thanks Chris for the update. I was out earlier this morning working in my yard. The temperature was around sixty five degrees, but the humidity and dew point made it a little uncomfortable. I’m in for the day. The high temperature for today in the upper eighties without any wind will be unbearable for me. I hope the cooler air for late next week will pan out and the tropical storm stays to our south.

      More like lower and very close to mid 90’s for high temperatures.

        Yep. Even if it cools back into the upper 80s as currently predicted next week due to t-storms, the humidity will be very high and keep the real feel above 90! Welcome to typical summer in KY☺

    Chris, IDK if you will see this, but when the land is frozen again and the arctic tundra has taken over PLEASE just reach out and slap me if I complain about the cold. This is too much for me haha. I’m ready for fall temps again. Probably doesn’t help that we didn’t have spring and just jumped right into the hot summer temps haha. Stay cool everyone! And check on your neighbors. This is just as bad as cold temperatures.
