The hottest day of 2016 is nearly over as hot, moist air stick around for at least another day.

Most spots easily reached the mid to 90s on thermometers today, but with the added moisture, touched the upper 90s and triple digits.

Thanks to the added moisture in the air, storms are firing up from the northwest and diving into the Bluegrass. As a cold front moves in from the northwest, the potential for strong to severe storms will fire up near Louisville Sunday night.

Into Monday, showers and strong storms will move into southeastern Kentucky. Expect strong winds and rain moving toward the southeastern mountains by Monday evening. Daytime highs will still run hot in the low 90s and upper 80s, but cooler air will slowly begin to take hold into Tuesday.

Temperatures will calm back down into the middle of the work week as we dry out too. Much more comfortable conditions are on the way...hang in there!
