We have a blustery, muggy and active Wednesday on the way with scattered showers, t-showers & heavy rain firing up as the remnants of Barry pass to our north. After that- a July heat wave clamps down. This will likely be our hottest and most oppressive stretch of days so far this year. An excessive heat watch is in effect for Bluegrass and western counties Thursday through Sunday evening. High will soar into the low to mid 90s with the heat index (heat & humidity) spiking in the triple digits for days. Stay cool & hydrated and do not overdo it if you work outside. Showers, storms and slightly cooler air take over early next week.
