After several days of heavy rain and storms this week, we are finally seeing the weather quiet down. That break came just in time for the weekend. The front that passed yesterday is just to the south of the commonwealth and high pressure is holding strong across the region. A few clouds moved in on Saturday but the area stayed dry. Overnight lows will dip into the mid 60s with patchy dense fog developing. With high pressure positioned just to our west, another heat wave will grip the Plains States and upper Mid-West. But the Bluegrass is just on the edge of that system. While it will be strong enough to give us above average temperatures, humidity, and low rain chances, we will escape the searing heat.
Highs will stay in the lower 90s to start next week but we should begin to see that high pressure system to our west weaken a bit and allow some storms to develop. We will transition into a more typical summer stormy pattern by Wednesday into the weekend.
Have a great weekend!
