We are about to close the book on the driest AND hottest September on record in Lexington. But the heat wave just won't stop! We will blaze through the work week with the potential to break multiple daily record highs. Highs in the mid to upper 90s will also blow past Lexington's all-time warmest October temperature (93° on Oct 10, 1941.) On top of it all, these will be humid days with the heat index near 100°, if not above, through the afternoon. Highs will drop out of the 90s on Thursday, but it still could be a record day, as a cold front approaches. It will be 20 degrees cooler and feel more seasonal by Friday. Unfortunately the front won't carry much rain. So the dry spell will likely live on too. We could give the longest dry stretch a run for the money as well. Better chances for showers and storms will come next weekend.
