Rain chances ending, temperatures heat up late week

(WYMT) - The cold front continues to push across Eastern Kentucky bringing showers and storms to our southern counties. As we head into the evening hours, showers and storms will begin to head south and leave the WYMT coverage area. In return, we will heat up for the end of the week.

As mentioned tonight, the cold front will head south of Eastern Kentucky. This will bring decreasing cloud cover and lows in the mid-60s. Patchy fog will be possible, especially in the locations that received rainfall today.

Thursday and Friday
High pressure will build in from the north, bringing back the sunshine for Thursday and Friday. No rain chances are expected but highs will soar into the upper 80s for Thursday and the upper 80s to lower 90s for Friday. Heat index values will make temperatures feel like the mid-upper 90s for the end of the week. Keep the water and sunscreen handy if you have any outdoor plans.

Extended Forecast
The first half of the weekend looks dry. Outside of a stray shower chance, highs will remain in the lower 90s for Saturday. Heat index values will make some locations feel like the lower 100s! While Saturday will be the warmest day of the year, our attention will also be focused on our next rain chance.

Rain chances look to return to the region Sunday as scattered afternoon showers and storms move back into the forecast. Highs will remain in the lower 90s.

We will actually hold onto the afternoon thunderstorms through the start of next week. High temperatures will range from the upper 80s to lower 90s through the start of the work week. All of this is expected to come before a cold front increases rain chances on Tuesday and Wednesday.
