The warm and muggy conditions will continue across the Bluegrass as highs warm back into the mid 80's. While thermometers aren't quite as hot as the last few days, it's the humidity that will cause many to sweat it out.

Outside of the humid and unpleasant feel, there is a difference in the forecast. It's the start of what will be a stormy route through the weekend. In fact, a stationary boundary just to our north finally sinks southward this afternoon and will hang around for a few days. In return, numerous showers and storms crank up and become likely through Friday. Best chances for activity will be through each afternoon period as some stronger storms look possible. With a juicy airmass in place, heavy rain could lead to some localized flooding issues through late-week.

With the abundant storm chances Thursday and Friday, we can expect a good deal of cloud cover. The good news from all of this is temperatures cool into the upper 70's and low 80's. However, the muggy conditions hang around and despite the cooler thermometers, the humid feel hangs around.

As previously mentioned, the storm chances stick around through the weekend and last into early next week. A couple dry days arrive towards the middle of next week with highs in the low 80's and lower humidity. By the end of next week, more showers and storm looks possible as we could see another stormy set up prevail.

Have a great day!
