FORECAST : Staying hot and humid for the weekend but a pattern change is on the horizon.
We can see cooler days ahead, however several days of near 90 degree temperatures remain in the forecast. Expect a dry and quiet, but warm and humid weekend across the region as a strong ridge of high pressure allows for warm Gulf air to push north into the Ohio Valley. That is the pattern that we are in right now, but things will begin to change by the end of next week.
What you see in the graphic above will eventually flip-flop, as that area of low pressure will move east into our region, and another ridge of high pressure will move into the western United States, keeping the western half of the country warm, and much cooler as you head east of the Mississippi River.
An additional cool-down may follow on the heels of the one next week, so we'll be sure to keep you informed with the latest and up-to-date forecast for South Central Kentucky.
