It has been a fairly pleasant day with sunshine for most of the area and temperatures in the mid 80s. Some locations, mainly in Eastern Kentucky have seen a few isolated showers and storms today. The cold front passing through yesterday is stationed south of Tennessee, but an area of low pressure is still close enough and to our east to bring the isolated rain and storm chances to Eastern Kentucky. We’ll dry out tonight under mostly clear skies and temperatures in the mid 60. Some patchy fog may develop because of the elevated dew points. 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. Day time heating will prompt isolated showers and storms to pop up Monday and Tuesday afternoon. Temperatures will still feel very much like summer though with more sunshine and highs in the mid 80s. By Wednesday, a few more 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!
