Record Heat & Damaging Thunderstorms

Record Heat & Damaging Thunderstorms

On Central KY's record hottest July 5th, explosive thunderstorms have led to wind damage in southern & eastern KY. 1 injury has been reported.
Heat Advisories remain in effect over the next few afternoons for central and eastern Kentucky.

Excessive Heat Warnings remain in effect for northern and western parts of the area for the next few afternoons as well.

We'll remain in the middle 70s for lows over the next few nights, and highs will continue to reach the upper 90s through Saturday.  Over the next few days, the heat index will climb to 100° - 105°, with even slightly higher values just to our west.  A more widespread batch of thunderstorms will accompany a strong cold front on Sunday and Monday, dropping temperatures back into the middle 80s for the early and middle part of next week.  Most of the area will be dry on Tuesday, aside from some spotty southern Kentucky thunderstorms.  Scattered storms may slide farther north with a new area of low pressure at the middle of next week, although there remain many questions about the track of that system.
