Hot and dry for the weekend before Fall brings cooler temperatures


Overview: Clouds kept us on the cool side for Friday but they will clear out this weekend and temperatures will once again return to the upper 80s low 90s. Expect drought conditions to continue throughout the weekend, relief from this heat will be arriving late Sunday night into Monday morning as a cold front slips south into the region. One concern before the boundary arrives will be the potential wildfire risk across the Bluegrass. Conditions will be favorable wildfires to develop and spread quickly; hot temperatures, dry conditions, and breezy conditions. The front is expected to bring showers and thunderstorms but don’t expect it to be a drought buster by any means. The main feature will be the cooler temperatures or for us back to average temperatures.
