Hopefully you'll have time to enjoy our mostly dry weather today, now that the fog is gone. We're expecting just a few isolated downpours and thunderstorms this afternoon, mainly south of I-64. We've already got a few on radar west of us now (see right), but most will stay dry through the morning. Highs today will be in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees.
There's a bit of a wildcard on the table for Monday morning through early afternoon as thunderstorms will be rolling through Western Kentucky. Some of these may spread eastward and impact our southwestern counties near Leitchfield and Hardinsburg. The models have been struggling with this during their morning runs, some taking an entire line of storms through all 29 of our counties and some keeping most of the activity to our southwest. Our forecast represents a decent middle ground at this point, but be aware that we may need to raise storm chances for Monday should the more aggressive data begin to take hold later today. Gusty winds and heavy rain would be the main threats from these storms.
Otherwise it's the 90s that we'll see for the workweek with daily afternoon storm chances. Some of these chances may get elevated by perhaps Tuesday but especially Wednesday as batches of storms try to flow around the edge of the heat and impact us from the north. We won't go too far into specifics since the evolution of the storm chances previous to the midweek time frame will impact the midweek atmosphere.
We still have at least a small break from the daily storms and some drier air in the Earliest Alert Outlook. Watch the video below for more!
