Overview: The heat continues into the second half of the work week with upper 80s to low 90s expected. Models hints towards very spot showers across the Bluegrass for Friday however with dry air in place and strong high pressures ridging expect any showers development to most likely evaporate before it hits the ground otherwise known as virga. The weekend ahead looks to be above average once again with temperatures in the low 90s. Relief from this heat will be arriving late in the weekend as a cold front slips south into the region. Hopefully this front will also produce some much need rain. Lexington has only recorded a trace of precipitation all month!
