A “cold” front is moving through as I type this. It will not bring relief from the hot/humid air just yet, so expect another sweaty afternoon. In addition, this front will continue to fire up t-storms along/east of its journey. This will be mainly for our Kentucky counties this afternoon. They will not be widespread so several of you will once again miss out on the rainfall.
You should notice the drop in humidity by Friday. Having said that, it will still be a very warm/hot day ...just not as hot.
We look to hold onto the dry/hot setup into Saturday.
Moisture levels start to go up Sunday so we will add the t-storm chance back into the forecast at that time. Otherwise, hot and humid with the heat index getting into the upper 90s.
Still some questions on the track/speed of “Barry” but impacts in WAVE Country continue to increase on the recent data trends.
This includes: Some gusty winds in the order of 25-40 mph. 1-3″ of rainfall. Isolated tornado threat southeast of its track.
However, the track will determine how much of the area would experience any of the above elements. That will take a couple more days to fine-tune but it looks to be our next decent chance at some widespread rainfall...so let’s hope we get some.
After the system leaves, the heat will return as the big story and this heat wave could be impressive. More on that in the video today as well.
