A Flash Flood Watch is in effect across southeastern Kentucky until Friday evening.
A Heat Advisory continues across northern Kentucky this afternoon and evening.
It'll be another hot, humid and occasionally stormy day, with potential for severe thunderstorms and additional flash flooding this afternoon. Spotty showers and weaker thunderstorms are sliding east across northern Kentucky this morning, but a more widespread round of torrential thunderstorms will develop in the afternoon and evening. Some of these storms will bring lots of lightning, flash flooding, straight-line winds and hail. Highs will be near 92°, but high humidity will boost the heat index closer to 100° this afternoon. The actual cold front will cross the area on Friday, so thunderstorms will remain possible through the overnight hours as lows only fall to 72°. Another round of strong to severe thunderstorms may form along and just ahead of the front on Friday, from Lexington to the south and southwest. Slightly cooler air will follow for the weekend, with highs returning to the 80s. Central Kentucky should be dry on Saturday and Sunday, with isolated thunderstorms limited to areas near the Tennessee and Virginia state lines. We'll return to the lower 90s with isolated to scattered thunderstorms back in the forecast from Monday through Wednesday of next week.
