It has been a fairly pleasant day with sunshine for most of the area and temperatures back in the 80s. However, we have been seeing some showers and storms moving through portions of the viewing area this afternoon. There was an isolated severe cell during the early afternoon, but all activity has fallen under severe limits. Heavy rain, lightning, and gusty wind are still possible through this evening as storms continue to pass through thanks to a weak cold front. This front will reach Tennessee by early Sunday keeping the mainly focus of rain out of the area. Tonight we will see partly cloudy skies and patchy fog developing with temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. Sunday we will see decreasing clouds and temperatures in the low to mid 80s. Expect lower 80s in portions of Southern Kentucky as cloud cover is expected to linger longer through the day there thanks to the retreating front. Some isolated showers and storms may pop up into the afternoon, but look to mainly impact Eastern Kentucky. High pressure will continue to sit over the region keeping the viewing area mainly dry Monday and Tuesday with slightly less muggy air in place. It will still feel very much like summer though with more sunshine and high in the mid 80s. By Wednesday, a few showers and storms look to build back in with high temperatures staying in the mid 80s. Shower and storm activity will pick up Thursday and linger into Friday. Some showers and storms are still possible during the weekend as well. Temperatures Thursday through the weekend will settle in the low to mid 80s.
Be sure to check on the Perseid meteor shower tonight and tomorrow night!
