Mostly cloudy skies and scattered to widespread thunderstorms will persist on Tuesday with a boundary overhead. The threat for severe thunderstorms will be low. Temperatures will remain warm with highs expected in the upper 70s to around 80 degrees.
By the midweek, temperatures will quickly warm into the mid 80s with only stray to scattered storms possible in eastern Kentucky.
