A Heat Advisory
continues across northern Kentucky this afternoon and evening.
It's another hot, humid, stormy afternoon, with scattered severe thunderstorms that bring the potential for flash flooding. Thunderstorms will continue to cause problems across the area into the evening. Some of these storms will bring lots of lightning, flash flooding, straight-line winds and hail. Apart from the storms, temperatures will hover in the lower 90s, but high humidity will boost the heat index closer to 100° this afternoon. The actual cold front will cross the area on Friday, so thunderstorms will remain possible through the overnight hours as lows only fall to 72°. Another round of strong to severe thunderstorms may form along and just ahead of the front on Friday, from Lexington to the south and southwest. 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.
