Drying pattern arrives, hot and humid weather continues

(WYMT) - The cold front continues to pass across Kentucky today, providing for showers and storms. Most of the activity continues to be across the southeastern portion of the viewing area. The actual cold front will swing through later tonight and into Thursday morning.

Clouds will stick around with just a slight rain chance this evening. Most locations should remain dry but a 20% chance remains for the entire coverage area. Lows tonight will drop down into the mid-60s. Patchy fog is possible in the valley locations overnight.

Thursday and Friday
A stray shower chance will stick around for the earlier morning hours on Thursday. After the morning hours, we should dry out quickly with decreasing clouds. Mostly sunny skies will take over by the afternoon with highs in the mid-80s.

The area of high pressure that brought the dry conditions on Thursday will stick around for Friday and even Saturday too! Friday will feature warmer temperatures with highs in the upper 80s. Grab the sunscreen and water for any outdoor plans.

Weekend Forecast
The weekend is on track to feature the hottest days of 2018. Highs on Saturday will increase thanks to southwesterly winds as high pressure moves eastward. We will see highs in the lower 90s with mostly sunny skies.

Daily rain chances will return to the forecast by Sunday afternoon. As dew points begin to increase, we will have to increase the rain chances. It's just a 20% chance of showers and storms on Sunday with highs in the lower 90s. That will be a trend that looks to continue into next week as well.

Be sure to stay updated with the WYMT Weather Team for the latest information on the weekend heat.
