LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – With heat index values in the 90's and scattered storm chances over the weekend, you will be very hydrated and keep an umbrella practical.
Hot and humid weather comes to Commonwealth
After a short early morning, isolated storm passes through parts of central Kentucky early this morning, conditions will mostly be on the "dry" side of the moment. Temperatures start in the middle of the middle of the 60s and in the afternoon we will warm our heights back in the top 80's with heat index values in the 90's as humid air will still be in place. By this afternoon and evening, scattered and isolated storms may come up across the region, but while some may see these storms, they may not see any rain today.
Moving to Sunday you can expect much from the same kind of weather. The morning temperatures begin the day in the top 60s and 70s, and then in the afternoon and evening our heights are back in the 80s with plenty of humidity, making it feel oppressive outside. Sunday will have a little more widespread rain and thunderstorm chances than what we will see on Saturday. These storms could also be on the stronger side with strong winds, heavy rain and lots of lightning strikes, so we will monitor this threat.
In the mid-80's, staying with us for most of next week, but a cool down is on its way. Memorial Day will contain some isolated storm threats before a short dry period returns Tuesday, and then we see another system coming into the middle of the work week. After this next system on Wednesday / Thursday, the temperature appears to be a good fall in the mid-70s before the end of the working week.
