The first official day of summer is not until June 21st, yet our weather will continue to be in a summer weather pattern, with heat and humidity and late day rain showers and thunderstorms. We are not anticipating any organized severe weather, yet heavy rainfall could lead to some localized flooding problems. Eastern Kentucky is under a Flash Flood Watch until 11pm Thursday, where slow moving thunderstorms may produce up to two inches of rain in less than an hour, leading to localized flooding. There will also be the threats for isolated gusty winds and frequent lightning.

TONIGHT: A weakening cold front will drop southward out of the Ohio Valley, and through Kentucky and into Tennessee tonight into Thursday. This will continue to give us the chance for scattered thunderstorms tonight, with an overnight low temperature of 65 degrees. There will also be the chance for patchy dense fog into Thursday morning as well.

THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy skies and scattered rain showers and thunderstorms continue for Thursday, with a warm afternoon high temperature of 83 degrees.

THURSDAY NIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy skies will continue with the chance for a few lingering rain showers and thunderstorms, with overnight low temperatures around 62 degrees.

FRIDAY: Thunderstorm coverage looks to be more isolated on Friday, with a warm afternoon high temperature of 82 degrees.

SATURDAY: Mostly sunny skies will be featured for the start of our weekend, with a Saturday afternoon high temperature of 83 degrees. Saturday will feel more comfortable with less humidity as well.

SATURDAY NIGHT: We will have a pleasant Saturday night, with mostly clear skies and a comfortable low temperature of 62 degrees.

SUNDAY: Partly sunny skies will be around for Sunday, with a warm afternoon high temperature of 85 degrees. There will be a chance for a few isolated thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening hours of Sunday as well.

NEXT WEEK: Warm temperatures continue for next week, with highs in the mid 80s, with isolated to scattered thunderstorms possible each day.
