Shower and storm chances expected through the weekend

(WYMT) - We are going to sound like a broken record for the rest of the week. Temperatures are on the cooler side with readings in the lower 80s. It's still muggy, especially in the sheltered valleys this afternoon. As we go throughout the evening hours, coverage in thunderstorms is expected to increase. We will keep you updated throughout the evening.


We will hold onto a few shower and storm chances for this evening as the frontal boundary continues to hang over Eastern Kentucky. Clouds will stick around tonight with lows dropping down into the mid-60s. Dense fog will be present this evening, especially with calm winds across the valley locations.

Thursday and Friday
The chances for showers and thunderstorms look to stay consistent for the next couple of days. While we could see a few stronger storms, most should stay below severe limits. With afternoon heating, you can never lose the severe risk completely during the summer. Highs on Friday will reach the upper 70s to lower 80s. Once again, afternoon thunderstorms will be what we watch for.

Friday looks to have a little bit more "juice" for the storms. I think the extra energy from the incoming low pressure could provide some breezy winds and afternoon storm chances. We will keep on eyes on this day. The Storm Prediction Center does have us in a thunderstorm category for Friday as well with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

Weekend Forecast
Chances for showers and storms will continue into the weekend, but look to become somewhat more scattered on Saturday and spotty on Sunday. Outside of our rain chances, Saturday will likely be mostly cloudy with highs around 80. We could see a little bit more sunshine on Saturday, if that low pressure moves out quickly. Sunday features a mix of sun and clouds with more isolated chances of showers and storms. I think the best chance for shower activity stays near the Virginia border. HIghs will be in the mid-80s that afternoon.
