HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - Summer officially starts today at 5:13 a.m., and it will definitely feel like Summer across the mountains by the afternoon.

Tuesday through Wednesday night

The weather stays warm and dry to kick off the new season. High temperatures reach the lower-90s under a partly cloudy sky. Heat index values could reach the upper-90s in spots, so stay hydrated if you plan to be outside for a long time today.

Into tonight, we remain cool and calm. Low temperatures fall into the lower-60s under a clear sky.

Another warm day is on tap for Wednesday. High temperatures soar into the low-and-mid-90s under a mostly sunny sky.

However, a few showers and thunderstorms will be possible as we get into Wednesday night. This morning, the Storm Prediction Center placed areas along and north of the Mountain Parkway in a Level 1 Marginal risk for strong storms. The primary threat will be strong, straight-line winds. The overall severe weather threat is low but not zero, so keep an eye on it.
