Sky Alert Weather Forecast

Happy Friday, all! As we put the final touches up on another work week, we’ll do so with hot and humid conditions. A dome of high pressure remains parked across the region while keeping most of us dry. Outside of an isolated shower or storm this afternoon, highs are expected to soar near 90 degrees under mostly sunny skies. Nonetheless, the sizzling start to September continues.

Tonight, partly cloudy skies take over as any shower or storm activity should diminish. Otherwise, look for a mild night as lows drop into the low-mid 60’s. Patchy fog likely develops by early Saturday morning.

Your holiday weekend will feature more of what we’ve been dealt with over the last 4-5 days. Highs climb into the mid-upper 80’s through the holiday weekend and Labor Day as mostly sunny conditions dominate the skies. Each afternoon will pose the threat for a pop-up shower or storm.

The heat and humidity continues into next mid-week for Eastern Kentucky before a cold front appears to bring some relief. Rain chances ramp up by Wednesday and into Thursday as a much cooler air mass takes over. Afternoon highs will struggle to reach the lower 80’s Thursday afternoon providing a much needed cool down for many!

Have a great Friday!
