LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The steamiest week of 2014, so far, has arrived here in the commonwealth.
There is all kinds of potential to see daytime highs climb into the upper 80s and around 90 all week long. You throw in the humidity and it will feel even worse. This is a very typical patter for this time of year. To see temps make a run in the upper 80s and low 90s during June-August is to be expected around here.
One of our only saving graces for the week a head will be the daily threat of showers and storms. If you get caught under one of these, naturally, you will be much cooler. It'll feel nasty after the sun comes back out, but cooler for a moment.
Isolated showers and thunderstorms may develop each and every afternoon and evening through Wednesday.
The threat for showers and storms will increase late this week into the coming weekend. That's when moisture continues to funnel in from the southwest and combines with a slow-moving system in the plains.
Temps look to come down several degrees during that time.
