LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – It was a warm and muggy day across the region with mainly dry skies and some sunshine.
After recent rains, you’ll find no complaints about that either! While conditions look mainly dry Wednesday, heat and humidity ramp up with late week storm chances returning.
Tuesday night, we’ll see a few passing clouds with dry conditions expected. Temperatures are warm and muggy once again with lows in the low 70s.
Wednesday will feature a mix of sun and clouds with hot afternoon temperatures ahead. Highs surge into the lower 90s with heat indices or feel-like conditions ranging from the upper 90s to low 100s.
With ongoing recovery efforts across southeastern Kentucky, the heat and humidity could be a factor. A Heat Advisory has been issues through tomorrow afternoon for these areas.
Outside of temperatures, conditions are mainly dry once again, but a few isolated storms are possible. Any activity that develops will wrap up by sunset.
Our next system drops closer to town late week and this weekend before stalling out across the Ohio Valley. With plenty of moisture streaming in, rain and storm chances are a good bet Thursday and Friday.
Those storm chance hang around through the weekend.
The pattern into next week remains active as storm chances stick around both Monday and Tuesday. Highs are a little cooler for this period as thermometers drop into the low and mid-80s.
