High pressure continues to increase our temperatures in Eastern Kentucky. Southwesterly winds have increased both temperatures and humidity values over the past few days. Unfortunately, a change in the weather pattern will not happen until next week.
Tonight is another week of high school football. It will be a hot one. It's important to note that the heat index has to remain at 99 degrees or lower in order for games to occur. If the heat index at any point reaches 100 degrees, the game will be delayed until it cools down. This could be a problem for a few games in Eastern Kentucky. No matter what, we will get the games in. They might just start later than expected.
Mild conditions continue into tomorrow morning. Patchy fog is possible in the valley areas tonight and into early tomorrow morning. Tomorrow will be another repeat forecast. High temperatures will reach the lower 90s with hot and humid conditions. Once again, we will have to keep an eye on that heat index for Saturday football games.
Isolated to scattered showers remain in the forecast daily. Overall, expect hot and humid conditions this weekend. We continue this trend on your Sunday and Monday with highs around 90 degrees.
Unfortunately, the heat and humidity hang around into next week. Luckily, models continue to hint to a cool down by the end of the week. We will keep an eye on this. For now, stay cool! Have a great evening!
