If you liked yesterday, you're going to love today and this weekend. We are entering a stretch of typical summer days with warm and muggy afternoons and small storm chances. Southeastern Kentucky will have the best chance for isolated thundershowers later today. The potential will be expanded to the entire area over the weekend, but we are still expecting more dry time than stormy time. These storms won't be severe but will carry quite a punch when it comes to heavy rain. Meanwhile, temperatures will continue to hover near normal in the mid 80s.

There will be a mini "heat wave" to start next week with highs climbing into the lower 90s. Highs will drop back into the 80s through the second half of the upcoming week. Storm chances will also slightly increase as a cool front attempts to push through the Ohio Valley. There will be chances for isolated to scattered storms beginning Wednesday.
