A Heat Advisory
continues across northern Kentucky this afternoon and evening.
Out ahead of a cold front, scattered strong to severe thunderstorms this evening will bring the potential for flash flooding.
Some of these storms will bring lots of lightning, heavy downpours, straight-line winds and hail.
The actual cold front will cross the area on Friday, so thunderstorms will remain possible through the overnight hours as lows only fall into the low 70s.
Another round of strong to severe thunderstorms may form along and just ahead of the front on Friday, from Lexington to the south and southeast.
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.
