Temperatures heated up today with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s across the Bluegrass due to ample sunshine and a very dry ground. We did at least feel lower humidity behind yesterday's weak cool front. Overnight expect clear skies and lows around 63. Sunday will be sunny and even hotter with a bit more humidity as southerly winds kick in ahead of an approaching cold front. The problem with this front will be the same as the last, there's not much moisture to help develop rain. At this point we need a good soaking but rain chances will be 20% or less as the front passes late Sunday night.
We will feel some cooler temperatures for the start of next week, especially in the mornings as lows dip to 54 on Tuesday. Sunshine and breezy winds will make for a beautiful start to the week. But temperatures quickly surge on Wednesday as southerly winds return. By the end of the week, computer models are picking up on a serious heat wave. And with the lack of rain chances and a strong ridge building, it's easy to believe we could be dealing with the hottest weather we've had so far this year. Hopefully things change between now and then but we'll continue to keep you updated!
Have a great weekend!
