The upper level pattern continues to hold allowing the heat and humidity to stick around for another day. Slow-moving scattered showers and stray storms developed during the overnight hours. The main concentration of these storms is over Southeastern Kentucky and continues to inch southeast. A Flood Advisory is in effect for Perry, Owsley, Clay, and Bell Counties until 10:30am and Breathitt County until noon. At the same time, A Heat Advisory is in effect for Lawrence, Boyd, Carter, Greenup, Lewis, Mason, Bracken, Robertson, Pendleton, Campbell, Kenton, Boone, Gallatin, Carroll, Owen and Grant Counties. Heat indices in these areas could reach up to 105-degrees this afternoon. As the afternoon progresses, atmospheric instability will allow scattered showers and storms to develop once again. Some of these storms may be strong. Highs range from the upper 80s (where it rains) to the lower/middle 90s (where it remains dry). Anything that does develop will diminish after sunset tonight.
More widespread showers and storms arrive Thursday ahead of an approaching cool front. The Storm Prediction Center has the bulk of the WKYT viewing audience in a Slight Risk for Severe Weather tomorrow with large hail and damaging winds being the main threat. The stormy continues linger into Friday as the front eases southward. For now, the weekend still looks dry and pleasant with highs in the middle to upper 80s and overnight lows in the 60s.
Stay cool out there.
