Forecast: More Heat On Sunday

It was a hot, humid Saturday across South Central Kentucky (with a couple of thundershowers popping up in the afternoon hours for a few communities) and Saturday night is looking pretty stuffy with only a few passing clouds. Temperatures will only drop into the low 70s. A couple of communities could see some areas of fog.

Sunday will be hot. As a matter of fact, when we factor in the humidity with the heat, we’ll have heat indices (the “feels-like” temperatures) above 100 degrees, which will make for dangerous conditions for anyone spending any time outdoors. That means taking frequent breaks, limiting your time outside and making sure your pets are indoors with a full bowl of water! Checking on your neighbors is a good idea, too, since air conditioning sometimes breaks down without warning.

The week starts out hot with daytime highs in the low to mid 90s and overnight lows in the low 70s through Wednesday morning. We’ll see a good amount of sunshine for the first part of the week with only a chance of an isolated storm, but by the middle of the week, a cold front will move toward South Central Kentucky giving the area a better chance of seeing scattered showers and storms. After the front passes through, we’ll end the week with “cooler” temperatures…highs in the upper 80s and lows in the mid 60s. Along with plenty of sunshine, we’ll see a slight chance of a daily thunderstorm for late week.
