Unsettled weather continues for much of the work week with a good chance for showers and thunderstorms today – some could be strong with the potential for more heavy rain and gusty winds. Scattered shower chances will continue Wednesday through Friday – mainly during the afternoon and early evening with highs in the muggy upper 80s and low 90s.

CHANGES COMING:
Another cold front will pass through on Saturday bringing showers and thunderstorms. However, the front clears on Sunday and ushers in a cooler, less-humid airmass for the start of next week with highs falling into the low to mid 80s.

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Mainly clear with areas of patchy dense fog. Showers possible near the Lake Cumberland region.
6am: Patchy Fog, Showers East 70°
8am: Patchy Fog, Showers East 73°
10am: Mainly Sunny 79°

VERY WARM AND UNSETTLED:
After some morning fog, skies will brighten in the days ahead but decent chances for showers and thunderstorms remain in play through midweek. With the atmosphere quite juiced up, any thunderstorm that develops may produce locally heavy downpours along with dangerous lightning. There is a SLIGHT RISK for severe weather for areas north of the Western KY Parkway today where a few storms may contain strong winds and hail. Highs will top out near 90. Lower 90s are forecast Wednesday with a chance for scattered thunderstorms continuing.

THE HEAT BUILDS:
Some of the hottest, most humid air we’ve experienced this season will be felt late week into the weekend! As temperatures increase, rain chances decrease with high pressure building in. Highs will climb into the mid 90s late week into the weekend, with upper 90s possible Sunday into Monday. Afternoon heat indices at or above the century mark are likely late in the period.

Showers and thunderstorms will increase, some with heavy rain.
6am: Scattered Showers, Thunderstorms 78°
8am: Scattered Showers, Thunderstorms 77°

A STORMY START:
A cold front is forecast to sweep through the region as we start the new week. This will bring some much needed rain but also a SLIGHT RISK for severe weather across the entire region. Some storms could be strong to severe this afternoon/evening with damaging wind, localized flooding, and large hail the main threats.

OCTOBER IN JULY?
The cold front will be followed by an Arctic high pressure that will take over starting Tuesday. Unseasonably cooler, drier air will cover the Ohio Valley for the rest of the work week with highs 10-15 degrees cooler than average! Lots of sunshine will prevail through Thursday until a new system brings a chance of a shower popping up at some point during the course of the upcoming weekend.

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Warm and muggy under fair skies.
6am: Mainly Clear 74°
8am: Mainly Clear 77°
10am: Hazy 85°

A SCORCHER TUESDAY:
We were back into the 90s Monday afternoon and the heat rolls on into Tuesday. Along with very high temperatures (low to mid 90s) will come lots of humidity sending heat indices into the triple digits for many this afternoon. With a cold front on the approach from the northwest late day, there will be a chance for scattered afternoon thunderstorms. Storms could be quite strong IF they develop, with a few possibly severe (large hail, locally damaging winds possible). Scattered storms remain possible this evening with lows still warm and muggy in the low 70s.

MIDWEEK COOLDOWN:
A cold front sweeps through the region Wednesday bringing a big change to our weather pattern. There remains a slight chance for a shower or storm through Wednesday afternoon before dry weather prevails Thursday. Highs Wednesday drop into the upper 80s, with less humid air spreading into the region by Wednesday evening into Thursday.

THE 4thCAST:
Independence Day looks GORGEOUS! Expect lots of sunshine with highs in the mid 80s and comfortable humidity levels. The remainder of the holiday weekend also looks great, with temperatures slowly moderating Saturday into Sunday.

Warm and humid with partly cloudy skies. A few showers possible.
6am: Mainly Cloudy, Isolated Showers 70°
8am: Partly Sunny, Isolated Showers 73°
10am: Partly Sunny, Isolated Showers 80°

STILL A BIT UNSETTLED:
Showers and thunderstorms dotted the map Tuesday providing some with beneficial rain while others received little or nothing. The frontal system that brought the rain clears our region today reducing rain chances and keeping the heat down. A few places could catch an isolated thundershower but most will stay dry. Highs will climb into the upper 80s under partly sunny skies.

END OF JUNE:
Rain chances increase late Thursday as another disturbance moves in. Highs will top out in the upper 80s mid through late week. Unsettled conditions remain in place through the weekend, although daily readings slowly climb back into the low 90s.

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Mainly fair with a chance of an isolated shower or two.
6am: Mainly Clear 75°
8am: Mainly Sunny 80°
10am: Partly Sunny, Isolated Showers 86°

MORE HEAT AND HUMIDITY:
Wednesday marked day three of our heat wave as temperatures climbed into the lower 90s another time. More similar heat is in store for today along with a good dose of humidity. Much of the day will feature hazy sunshine, although a few isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible any place, any time. Highs will reach the lower 90s with heat indices topping out in the mid to upper 90s.

BETTER RAIN CHANCES:
A cold front slowly dips southward into Kentucky Friday. This will promote better chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms for the start of the weekend. The first official day of Summer (Saturday) will see a chance of showers and a few thunderstorms with highs in the upper 80s. Rain chances decrease a bit by Sunday before ramping up again early next week as another disturbance moves our way. Highs back off a bit into the upper 80s to near 90 over the weekend before more cooling arrives toward the middle of next week.

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Look for a mix of sun and clouds with areas of patchy fog.
6am: Partly Cloudy 71°
8am: Partly Cloudy 74°
10am: Partly Cloudy 78°

STAYING UNSETTLED:
Little change to the ongoing forecast as we will continue to see a chance of a shower or thunderstorm along with a mix of sun and clouds today…highs reach back into the mid 80s. We’ll see a short, quiet period of weather for much of Wednesday with mainly sunny skies and highs reaching into the upper 80s but…

SEVERE STORMS LATE WEDNESDAY:
A better chance for organized severe storms is possible Wednesday night as a storm complex develops and moves out of the Plains toward the Ohio Valley along with a cold front. This could produce widespread damaging wind and hail Wednesday night.

400 MILE YARD SALE WEEKEND:
One of Kentucky’s largest yard sales across US 68 will be affected by chances for a few showers and thunderstorms – although, much of Saturday looks rain-free and ideal for your hidden treasure hunting.

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Partly cloudy and humid with isolated showers possible.
6am: Partly Cloudy 71°
8am: Partly Cloudy 71°
10am: Isolated Showers 76°

MORE OF THE SAME:
The story stays unchanged for the new work week. Afternoon/evening “hit and miss” showers and thunderstorms will remain as temps stay just above average. Some storms could contain heavy rain, gusty winds, and frequent lightning. South Central Kentucky could see some serious rain makers at times with rainfall amounts up to half an inch or more. The unsettled weather will be coupled with high humidity across the region.

WEDNESDAY SEVERE:
A better chance for organized severe storms are possible Wednesday as a storm complex develops and moves out of Nebraska toward Kentucky. This could produce widespread damaging wind and hail Wednesday night.

400 MILE YARD SALE WEEKEND:
One of Kentucky’s largest yard sales across US 68 will be affected by chances for a few showers and thunderstorms – otherwise, not much will change with the ongoing forecast through Sunday.

A Few Storms Today and Thursday

Posted on Updated on

A slight risk for a few severe storms late this afternoon mainly north of the Bluegrass and Western Kentucky Parkway region.

NOWCAST THROUGH EARLY AFTERNOON:
Mainly sunny, warm and humid with southerly breezes.
6am: Mostly Clear 65°
8am: Mostly Sunny 69°
10am: Mostly Sunny 77°

BREEZY, WARM AND HUMID:
Temperatures made it back into the 80s for the first time in a week on Election Day. We’ll remain quite warm today with more breezy southwest winds. Under a mix of sun and clouds, highs should climb into the mid 80s with a few places south and west of Bowling Green possibly reaching the upper 80s. Humidity will be noticeably higher as well. A few storms may develop north of the parkways this afternoon – a few of which could be strong.

TURNING SLIGHTLY COOLER:
Our next frontal system eases southward from out of the Midwest Thursday morning. This gives us a decent chance for scattered showers and storms during that period. A few storms may be strong over Southern Kentucky where a SLIGHT RISK for severe storms exists. Readings stay quite warm before backsliding a bit beginning Thursday. The work week ends on a dry and seasonable note Friday.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND:
At this time, the upcoming holiday weekend appears nice and dry. We’ll see a warming trend, with highs climbing from the low 80s Saturday into the upper 80s Monday. We may even flirt with 90 Tuesday!
