Noon Update: A number of scattered showers have just begun to develop. While many areas are still dry at the noon hour, these showers are expected to intensify into storms with dangerous lightning and heavy rain. Flash flooding will be possible in some areas.
Temperatures are in the mid and upper 70s in southern and eastern Kentucky with Lexington already in the low 80s. The high humidity is making it feel much warmer and uncomfortable.
Chief Meteorologist Jason Myers will be in with an update on our afternoon and evening storms tonight at 5, 6, and 11.
Dense fog is reducing visibilities this morning. Otherwise, we will see a dry commute with temperatures in the mid and upper 60s.
This afternoon, another round of scattered showers and storms will develop. Some of the slow-moving storms could have heavy rain, causing flash flooding. When dry, we will see a mix of sun and clouds with temperatures climbing into the mid 80s.
Some of the showers and storms will continue into Friday as a weak cold front moves into the area. After another mild start to the day, we will be back into the mid 80s again Friday afternoon.
The cold front will not drop temperatures much, but will bring less humid air in for the weekend with mostly sunny skies.
