A stationary front remains parked across the Commonwealth while providing the focal point more isolated-scattered storms throughout today. Despite seeing a good mix of sun and clouds this afternoon, highs still manage to reach the upper 80’s with heat indices or feel-like temperatures in the mid-upper 90’s.
Scattered storms are expected into this evening before diminishing tonight. While no major severe weather is expected, a few stronger storms will be possible. Main threats with any storm activity will be heavy rainfall, gusty winds, and lightning. Otherwise, Eastern Kentucky dries out late tonight with mild lows in the lower 70’s. Some patchy fog development likely occurs early Wednesday morning.
By mid-week, not a lot changes with the forecast. The stationary front hangs around the Ohio Valley while keeping rain chances alive. However, heavy rain appears likely by Thursday as a surface low develops and woks across the state. With ample amounts of moisture to available, soggy conditions are looking likely with some flooding issues possible.
Unfortunately, the scattered showers and storms hang around in the forecast into Friday and much of the weekend. The good news is cooler, more seasonable air finally returns as highs drop into the low-mid 80’s through this time next week.
