More severe thunderstorms moved through the Bluegrass for most of this afternoon and part of the evening, but the action has since dwindled. There are still some strong storms in western KY, but those will not affect us. There were several Severe Thunderstorm Warnings attached to the storms earlier and we have received many reports of wind damage and trees or tree limbs down. Now that we are past sundown, we will dry out tonight, but don't let your guards down as we aren't finished with the action quite yet. Tomorrow, the energy and warmth (mid 80s) will get going once again as the front begins to move through the state. As we warm up around mid afternoon, another round of storms are possible. The atmosphere will be in a similar setup as today, so the threat for torrential downpours, intense lightning and strong wind gusts will be the case. I believe the bulk of the action will likely be east of I-75.
As we finish up the weekend, we'll see the rain move on east and that will set us up for a much nicer work week ahead. Plenty of sunshine will move in thanks to high pressure and we'll still be warm (mid to upper 80s) on Monday then cool off a bit for midweek. Humidity will take a big tumble and that will make it feel much more comfortable outside. Dry weather will hold all week until late Friday.
