  • Air Quality Alert - Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups: Louisville Metro (Friday)
  • Low to mid 90s expected this weekend
  • Relief from the heat next week?

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Clear skies are here to stay tonight as temperatures fall into the 60s.

By Friday morning there is a chance for some patchy fog in Central and Southern Kentucky, but most will stay fog-free. Prepare to sizzle on Friday with highs pushing above the 90-degree mark.

Due to the heat dome over us, poor air quality will be an issue with an Air Quality Alert in effect for the Louisville Metro on Friday.

We’re looking for mostly clear skies Friday night with seasonable overnight lows in the 60s. It’ll be mostly sunny and hot on Saturday with highs in the 90-95 degree range. Low humidity levels will at least keep the heat index from getting out of control, but 90s are 90s! Use caution!

The hot weather will contiue into Sunday, but will start to ease back a few degrees. A cold front will push into the area toward the middle of next week with some clouds and spotty showers.

There’s not much hope for widespread rain at this point, but a break from the 90s is at least feasible at this point.

More heat may be waiting in the wings for late next week but it’s too early for certainty on that.
