After hitting our hottest high of the year so far Sunday (94 in Lexington) another cold front passes with little rain Monday. We may see an isolated shower/storm today but we will see highs fall from the low to mid 90s yesterday to the mid/upper 80s Monday afternoon.
The rest of the week unfortunately looks bone dry as a ridge of high pressure settles in to the Ohio Valley. We'll have plenty of sunshine to work with and highs will briefly bottom out around 80 Tuesday then climb back into the 80s mid week and eventually the 90s late this week. Thursday and Friday could be scorchers with highs in the mid to brief upper 90s (near record territory).
Tropical storm Debby continues to lash the gulf coast (Florida, Alabama & Georgia) with torrential rain and severe storms. All that tropical moisture that would be so beneficial here will stay southeast.
