Jim Caldwell's Forecast | Briefly refreshing before another steamy surge

July 12, 2018

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WDKY) - Temperatures and humidity levels will be down today. Enjoy it! It's here today and drifting away tomorrow!

We are on the other side of a cold front! It is a nice place to be when you have been watching those humidity levels climb for a few days. These levels will hang around a comfortable level today! No worries with today's weather.

We will find some issues on Friday. These aren't major issues, these are heat issues! It begins pushing back into Kentucky. This is when we will find highs around 85-90 and heat index values just slightly above 90 at times. While this isn't anything unusual, it is the beginning of a hotter run!

Once we get to Saturday, the heat is on! I think daytime highs reach the low and mid 90s. That comes without the help of any humidity in the air. When you factor in the humidity, it will make it feel more like 95 to 100. Numbers like that make it awfully uncomfortable... awfully fast! Throw in some scattered storms for the afternoon hours and you have yourself another normal summer day.

A cold front will quickly move toward us by early next week. It will bring a better chance of showers & storms to Kentucky. That's the transition we must face to get to some much cooler air for next week.

Have a good one!
