High pressure will keep things nice Monday before summer-like warmth and humidity return for the rest of the week.
With high pressure in place over the Ohio Valley, we are set-up for a delightful start to the month of June on this Monday across Kentucky and Southern Indiana. After a pleasant start to the morning, we’ll warm up nicely with afternoon highs back into the upper 70s to near 80 degrees with a few mid-level clouds sliding into Kentuckiana late. Humidity levels will still be low so it should be a delightful late spring day across the region. The area of high pressure will give way to the east heading into Tuesday, allowing more warmth and humidity to return to the region so our summer-like pattern will be back in place in fair short order. The dry weather will continue into the mid-week with highs surging into the upper 80s Tuesday with muggy air back in the picture.
We could see our first 90 degree plus day in exactly 8 months on Wednesday here in Louisville as the summer heat and humidity build as the southerly flow picks up bringing more moisture into the area. A weakening cold front will drop in from the northwest on Thursday before washing out as we close out the week on Friday. With the heat and humidity in place and enough lift provided by the boundary, a few scattered showers and storms will be possible Thursday and into Friday before we dry out. The first weekend of June promises to feel like it as afternoon highs remain in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees and some humidity hanging around as well.
TODAY: Mostly sunny and warmer! High: 79°. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.
TONIGHT: A few clouds and pleasant. Low: 62°. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
TUESDAY: More sunshine and heating up! High: 88°. Wind: SW 10-15 mph.
