It's the "Battle of the Birds" between Scott County and Great Crossing in the LEX 18 High School Sports Zone Game of the Week. Showers will diminish this evening and skies will begin to clear with temperatures running around 70 degrees.

Gone are the days of stifling heat and humidity! We are about to welcome a little taste of fall. Seems appropriate since the high school football season kicks off tonight. Rain will end from north to south tonight as a cold front pushes through Kentucky. Cooler and drier Canadian air will take the place of the muggies. Skies will clear and it will feel very refreshing by tomorrow morning. No matter how you slice it - tomorrow will be a great day with a high near 80°, lower humidity, and sunshine. Sunday won't be bad. It will get more humid and there is a small storm chance during the afternoon. This will set off an unsettled stretch. Storm chances will linger through the middle of the upcoming week. Rain and storms will keep the temperature tamped down. No 90s, only 80s for highs in the 8-Day StormTracker Forecast.
