LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - While we keep the first half of the workweek mostly dry, a Summer sizzle takes over for the second half with heat and humidity surging in.

Continuing through this evening and tonight, we’ll have some great conditions to enjoy. Temperatures will fall through the 70s and into the 60s by late tonight. Humidity levels are remaining low as well with calm to light winds. A few clouds will stick around, but we should have mostly clear skies later tonight with dry conditions continuing.

By Tuesday morning, temperatures will start the day in the mid to lower-60s. Some patchy fog will be with us again across parts of the Commonwealth but should clear out fairly quickly by the later morning hours. We expect another dry day in the forecast with a mix of sun and clouds expected throughout the day. By the afternoon and evening, highs are expected to reach into the mid-80s. Our average high for this time of year is 86, so we will be right on par for where we should be. Foretuantely, humidity levels will remain low, making it feel like a decent day.

We keep mostly dry weather conditions continuing into Wednesday, but our pattern starts to shift. Highs on Wednesday and through the end of the week will be in the upper 80s and even 90s. On top of that, the humidity will surge back into the forecast, and most days could feature head index values that rise deep into the 90s and possibly even near the triple digits. Daily scattered storm chances will also return to the forecast from Thursday will look to last through the end of the week and even into next week.
