High pressure will provide us with sunshine, heat, and humidity over the next couple of days.
Tonight and Tomorrow
Tonight and tomorrow the heat and humidity will continue to impact us here in the mountains as high pressure dominates the region.
Overnight tonight we will see mostly clear skies with lows in the upper 60s. We could see patchy fog late tonight into early Thursday morning.
For Thursday the good news is we'll remain dry but the bad news is we will be hot and humid with highs in the upper 80s to maybe even 90s in some spots.
Thursday night overnight lows will be in the upper 60s with mostly clear skies.
Friday and Saturday
For Friday and Saturday, the rain chances will return as a cold front moves into Eastern Kentucky.
For Friday it looks like the bulk of the showers and storms do not move in until later Friday evening.
Highs for Friday will be in the mid to upper 80s, so if you do head out to the festival you will need to drink plenty of water and wear sunscreen.
Saturday the main bulk of the rain will arrive and cool us off with highs in the upper 70s and lows in the mid-60s.
The Black Gold Festival in Hazard starts Thursday and runs through the weekend. Right now it looks we will remain dry for all of Thursday and most of the day Friday. We could be dodging showers and storms for the festival on Saturday.
The front looks like it will stall out over our region bringing us rain chances for the rest of the weekend and into the beginning of the work week.
Right now the first half of the work weeks looks gloomy with mostly cloudy skies and daily rain chances.
The good news is temperatures will be cooler because of the rain and cloud cover. Highs for the work week will be in the mid to upper 70s with lows in the mid-60s.
We might not see clearing until later in the week. We'll continue to keep an eye on this system throughout the week.
