As we bring it back home, conditions are on the calm side for the Commonwealth. High temperatures climb into the mid 80’s later this afternoon as the the muggy conditions win out. Look for a mix of sun and clouds to prevail as we hold onto the chance for a few isolated showers and storms.
The weekend kicks off on a decent note. Once again, warm highs hit the mid 80’s Saturday with the shot at a few isolated boomers for the afternoon period. This is not a washout by any means, but something you may want to keep an eye in the sky for those outdoor plans.
By Sunday, the remnants of Florence will continue its inland push. The track likely takes the low right through parts of central and eastern Kentucky later Sunday and into Monday. Heavy rains and gusty winds look likely as the second tropical system impacts the state in two weeks.
Rain chances linger Tuesday before a cold front swings through and helps push rain chances east by mid-week. Dry conditions take over for this period as thermometers climb into the low 80’s.
