Hot and humid is one headline.
The other is the thunderstorms.
Time to break this down in time periods:
Humid. Scattered t-storms will continue to develop along/west of I-65 especially. Very heavy rain, burst of strong winds and intense lightning the main concerns. Isolated severe t-storms warnings cannot be ruled out. The activity will fade after sunset.
A trough will help lead to slightly better wind shear aloft in the afternoon. That combined with deep moisture and daytime heating will help promote bands of showers and thunderstorms. Damaging winds and heavy rain the main issues. There is a bit of low level shear to monitor. Highs will be limited due to the quick nature of the cloud development and t-storms. Still around 90 degrees.
The main cold front passes through. The speed of this is still wavering a bit. It appears the deeper moisture will get pushed into southern KY by Thursday afternoon with drier profiles north. However, the cool air advection will lag. This means the lowering of dewpoints along with sunshine could easily push us into the mid 90s.
The cool air advection arrives! It will feel MUCH better outside. Highs in the 80s.
The heat will inch back into WAVE Country, but it looks dry.
Another trough may push a cold front into our area around Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. Expect an increase in t-storms as a result following by another bonus period of brief lower humidity.
See ya on TV!
