A Heat Advisory is in effect until 9pm for the following counties: Scott, Harrison, Woodford, Harrison, Fayette, Bourbon, Nicolas, Washington, Mercer, Jessamine, Clark, Marion, Boyle, Garrard, Madison, Green, Taylor, Casey, Lincoln, Adair, Russell, Cumberland and Clinton. Heat indices in these areas could reach up to 105 degrees during the advisory time. An Excessive Heat Warning is also in effect for Carroll, Gallatin, Boone, Kenton, Campbell, Owen, Grant and Pendleton Counties until 8pm. Heat indices are expected to range from 105-110 degrees today. Remember to take caution when outdoors: avoid strenuous outdoor activity, drink plenty of water, wear lightweight/light colored clothing, stay indoors when possible and allow your pets to stay with you indoors (in the air conditioning). While isolated showers and storms are possible this afternoon, the best bet for any precipitation will be for areas east of I-75. Some of these storms may be on the strong side with gusts approaching 50mph in the biggest cells. Any shower or storm that develops will diminish after sunset. It remains warm and muggy tonight with lows in the lower to middle 70s.
We’re still targeting a possible severe weather day tomorrow with instability on the rise as a cold front approaches from the west. Large hail and damaging winds will be the main threats, especially during the PM hours. Showers and storms linger into Friday with a drier, more seasonal weekend ahead.
