HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - Another warm day is in store across the mountains, but we are watching for showers and storms to return later this evening.

Wednesday through Thursday night

Most of your day is looking dry, mostly sunny and hot. High temperatures soar into the mid-90s by the afternoon. Dewpoints have also increased into the lower-60s, so the air will be a little more muggy today than the past few days. We are watching for showers and storms to return, especially by the evening and overnight.
