A few storms possible Sunday; still hot and humid


Temperatures have been back in the mid 80s this afternoon. We’ve worked in some sunshine, but have also seen scattered showers and storms through the afternoon. This activity will decrease once the sun goes down this evening. Dew points are getting closer to the 70 degree mark, so it will continually feel muggier through the weekend.  It will be muggy and mild tonight with lows in the upper 60s and a chance for some patchy fog. Highs Sunday will stay in the mid to upper 80s with a chance for isolated showers and storms through late morning and into the afternoon. Drier conditions work in late. Memorial Day looks mainly dry, but there is a chance for isolated showers/storms so keep rain gear handy for any outdoor celebrations. Highs will be in the upper 80s. There will be a chance for isolated showers and storms Tuesday with a high in the mid 80s. All eyes are on Tropical Storm Alberto in the Gulf. It is expected to make landfall Monday and begin to reach Kentucky by late Tuesday into Wednesday. Shower and storm chances increase Wednesday as the remnants of Alberto move through. Heavy rainfall is expected from the dying tropical system as well as breezy conditions. Shower and storm activity continues Thursday with highs in the low to mid 80s, much like Wednesday. Rain and storm chances decrease Friday and into Saturday with highs staying in the mid 80s.
