We’re starting your Saturday off with very similar conditions to the last week and a half. Patchy morning fog plagues the south and southeastern river valleys, while mostly clear skies are seen in portions of the Bluegrass. Temperatures are running mild in the 60s or low 70s this morning and the MaxTrack is clear.

As the sun warms us up, the fog will scatter, and the sun will be out for all by late morning/early afternoon. Cumulus will then build across the region and eventually the isolated pop-ups will get going. Temperatures warm into the upper 80s this afternoon so there will be plenty of heating around. The humidity is also projected to be up, but not overly oppressive. Expect isolated, heat-driven storms that dump a good deal of rain in a small area. A few lightning strikes and maybe a strong wind gusts or two. Small to moderate hail is also possible. We keep these same conditions for a few days, before looking onward to our next cold front.
