Good morning! The hot temperatures and dry conditions continue.
Today and Tonight
Today you can expect yet another day of sunshine and dry 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. We stay on the warmer side as well. Even if we do not see 90s, temperatures will still be well above average. The average high this time of year is 78!
Highs look to remain in the mid to upper 80s and some days we could be close to the lower 90s. The only chance for rain it looks like we have is towards the end of the week. The best chance looks 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.
