Overall summary, hot, thunderstorms, then cooler, then hot, then cooler? Also known as weather :)
So let's break it all down.
Now-Wednesday... Expect highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s through this period. Heat indices likely to get close to 100 degree when it is not storming. The only exception may be Tuesday where dewpoints are just a touch lower and may keep the index in the mid 90s. Either way, hot.
As far as thunderstorms chances...we will need to monitor the "sleeping (shhhh)" boundaries of the thunderstorms from Sunday that remain in our area. 3 Areas have that potential. One near Jasper/Paoli...other near Shelbyville/Lexington and the other which decided to already develop before I could finish this blog post...to the south near Hart County. Not everyone will experience one today, but be alert as they be moving "backwards" today.
Coverage of t-storms looks a bit less Tuesday with some drier air punching in from the N/NE flow.
The chance will pick back up again ahead of a cold front that will drop in Wednesday night. I explain in the video about timing and any severe potential.
Cooler (near or slightly below normal temps ...normal in the mid 80s) by Thursday/Friday/Saturday. Dewpoints look much lower; in the 50s! So it will be a very pleasant start to the holiday weekend.
It will start to creep back into our area by Sunday and Labor Day. The humidity will increase as well, but nothing dramatic. So I still feel the entire holiday weekend period will be a great one for WAVE Country as long as that front moves in Wednesday night and doesn't play games :)
The heat will really build after Labor Day as we get some fairly high pressure to take over with the tropics picking up off the SE Coast. 90-95 again looks to be the range.
Now this could come in 2 ways by mid month.
1) Tropical influence of clouds/rain
2) Another cold front pushes in for a repeat performance of Labor Day weekend, but a bit more intense.
So all of above only takes us out 3 weeks and look how packed it is? So we will have to take baby steps with all of this. But at least you know what I am looking at to monitor/track during this period.
See ya tomorrow!
