Hotter Today…Heat Indices in the Upper 90s

Expect a hot and muggy day as many of you jump into the work swing for the 1st time this week. It’ll be unseasonably hot with highs in the low 90s and heat indices in the upper 90s.  Rain is not a factor courtesy of High Pressure. So, expect lots of sunshine today, but be careful in the heat.   A cold front will move into our area tomorrow (Wednesday).  It’ll cross the N. parts of KY in the morning…and the S. parts of the state by the afternoon/evening.  As it crosses, spotty showers are possible…but this front is weak & will lack a lot of moisture. 

Yet, it WILL bring cooler and drier air in its wake.  So, get ready for a comfy/cozy scenario by the end of the workweek as dew point temps drop into the 50s.  We’ll wake up to lows in the 50s by Thursday morning, and the afternoon will bring highs near 80°…refreshing!  Friday, it gets a litter warmer by the afternoon with Mid 80s…which is seasonable.   Another weak cold front will cross our area overnight Friday into early Saturday.  It will also lack moisture, but slightly cooler air can be expected behind it. So, highs this weekend will stay comfortably in the low 80s…stay tuned. 

**Dorian slowly started to creep away from the NW Bahamas this morning, and it’ll gradually pick up speed over the next day or so.  Impacts can be expected for the SE coast from FL to the Carolinas between now and Saturday.  For now, it looks like the Carolinas could have greater impacts…especially if a weaker Dorian does make a land fall.  There’s still a lot of uncertainty, but life-threatening storm surge…flooding rain…and strong winds are things the SE must plan for (while hoping for the best). **
