Midnight Update:  We had isolated thunderstorms this afternoon and evening that put down some heavy rainfall, along with frequent lightning, which caused sporadic power outages.  We still have some isolated thunderstorm activity in Southeastern Kentucky, yet most of the activity should diminish as we continue into the early morning hours of Thursday.  Due to the rainfall, we will also have some patchy dense fog for early Thursday.  Temperatures will be back in the lower 90s, with the heat index near 100 degrees for Thursday afternoon.  Another round of thunderstorms will be possible for Thursday afternoon and evening as well.

We will have lingering heat and humidity Thursday and Friday, with highs in the lower 90s and heat indices near 100 degrees. This weekend will feature a break in the heat, with temperatures in the 80s returning, and increasing rain chances.

Tonight: There will be a chance for some isolated thunderstorms through the evening, with gusty winds, lightning, and heavy rainfall the biggest threats. We will continue to have warm and muggy conditions overnight with mostly clear skies, and an overnight low of 72 degrees.

Thursday and Friday: Temperatures will remain in the lower 90s with partly sunny skies and the chance for isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. The heat index will be between 95 and 100 degrees through the afternoon hours.

Weekend: A cold front will approach and move through the region late Saturday into early Sunday, bringing our next best chance for rain. Temperatures will top out around 88 degrees on Saturday and around 84 degrees for Sunday. Rain looks to diminish throughout Sunday afternoon and evening, yet a lingering chance for rain will continue.
