After 4 straight days of 100+ degree weather, we may see that streak end today (but not by much). Conditions remain very hot as the upper level ridge (responsible for the soaring temperatures) continues to hold over the region. This ridge, though, does flatten and shift slightly to the west today placing Kentucky and the rest of the Ohio Valley on the outer periphery of it. The flow aloft over the next few days will be out of the northwest allowing a better chance for isolated to scattered showers/storms from today through Thursday. Like yesterday, any one of these isolated storms may contain small hail and strong winds before weakening after sunset. Toward the end of the week, the ridge axis shifts back to the east putting us under a drier pattern this weekend. High temperatures back off to the lower to middle 90s Tuesday through Thursday with the upper 90s returning Friday through the weekend.
