The final Sunday of August turned out to be not only brutally hot but also quite active to boot.

Most spots reached the low triple digits and upper 90s this afternoon as tropical moisture made it downright awful to be outside.

Then the late afternoon arrived...

Strong to severe storms popped in several central and southern Kentucky spots bringing more than an inch of rain, winds gusts near 60 miles per hour and one inch sized hail.

Watch for localized flooding along roads and near small creeks and streams overnight.

The start of the work week looks very similar to Sunday - hot, humid and stormy. These are days where you need to be prepared and keep a watchful eye on the weather.

There is good news, though! Cooler air arrives by the middle of the work week and Friday is shaping up to just what the doctor (or meteorologist) ordered! Mild temperatures and sunny skies to kick off September.
