Most of the Commonwealth remained dry today despite the fact that a cold front moved across the area. It could be several days before our next chance for precipitation. After experiencing highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s this afternoon, things become more comfortable overnight. Lows will drop to the lower to middle 50s with pleasant weather tomorrow (highs near 80). By the time we hit the end of this week, a ridge of high pressure will dominate bringing temperatures to the middle to upper 90s by Thursday. Some areas could easily reach 100. Some possible relief by the end of this weekend.
Tuesday looks to be the pick day of the week weather-wise as high pressure builds into the region. High temperatures will settle on either side of 80 with low humidity throughout the day. As we head toward the end of the week, a strong upper level ridge anchors itself over the region. Temperatures will soar to the middle to upper 90s Thursday through Saturday. In addition, the humidity levels will also be very high and uncomfortable. Conditions stay hot and humid Sunday although a daytime shower may pop-up as the ridge breaks down slightly. Either way, get ready for a heat wave by this weekend. This set-up also keeps precipitation from Tropical Storm Debby away from us. The forecast track for Debby is hinting that the storm will head northeast across Florida and off the coast of the Carolinas by week’s end. Either way, Kentucky looks to remain very dry Tuesday through Saturday.
Have a pleasant night.
