(WYMT) - Sunshine, hot temperatures and drier conditions continue as we head into the last official week of summer.
Tonight and Tuesday
This evening we could see a stray chance for a shower or two. Overnight lows look to drop into the mid to upper 60s.
Tuesday the sunshine continues with drier conditions. Highs will be in the upper 80s to maybe even lower 90s in some spots. Those mostly clear conditions continue into the evening and overnight hours with lows dropping into the low to mid-60s.
The dry stretch looks to continue into the rest of the workweek.
Models are all over the place with high temperatures, but with the drier weather and warmer temperatures over the past several days, I think it is safe to say we will stay on the warmer side.
Highs look to remain in the mid to upper 80s and some days we could be close to the lower 90s. Honestly, we look mostly dry throughout the week with the possibility of some rain by Sunday into Monday. Fall starts on Monday, September 23rd at 3:50 a.m. So hopefully by then, we will see some cooler temperatures and rain.
We will continue to monitor this trend over the next week. So far for the month, Jackson has picked up no rain. Some of our area, including Breathitt County, is in a moderate drought while a lot of us are abnormally dry. This could be dangerous as we head into forest fire season.
