...Dry And Warm Conditions Continue, Isolated Showers & Storms In The Afternoon...

Other than an isolated pop-up near Hopkinsville, the state is dry as of 430 this afternoon. There is some scattered activity expected to push into Western Kentucky this evening and early overnight. Any storms then look to diminish over west-central KY before pressing further east.

Coverage is once again expected to remain on the low side tomorrow and continuing that way through the weekend. It will be hot though as more summer-like conditions return to the Ohio Valley. Highs look to be solidly in the upper 80s to low 90s tomorrow across the state.

Afternoon periods of danger livestock heat stress will accompany the afternoon temperatures.

Weather History...

At Newbury, Massachusetts, a violent tornado did extensive damage.
A "wind rush" at Washington, DC damaged the city hall and the Masonic Temple.
There was a rain of fish from the sky at Tiller's Ferry. Hundreds of fish
were swimming between cotton rows after a heavy shower. (David Ludlum)
The temperature at Fort Yukon AK soared to 100 degrees to establish a state
record. (The Weather Channel)
Hurricane Audrey smashed ashore at Cameron LA drowning 390 persons in the
storm tide, and causing 150 million dollars damage in Texas, Louisiana and
Mississippi. Audrey left only a brick courthouse and a cement-block
icehouse standing at Cameron, and when the waters settled in the town of
Crede, only four buildings remained. The powerful winds of Audrey tossed a
fishing boat weighing 78 tons onto an off-shore drilling platform. Winds
along the coast gusted to 105 mph, and oil rigs off the Louisiana coast
reported wind gusts to 180 mph. A storm surge greater than twelve feet
inundated the Louisiana coast as much as 25 miles inland. It was the
deadliest June hurricane of record for the U.S. (David Ludlum) (The Weather
The big heat continued in the southwestern U.S.  Lakewood, New Mexico hit a 
scorching 119 degrees to set a new all-time state record.  Afternoon highs of 
116 degrees at Midland, Texas, 114 at Lubbock, Texas and Roswell, new Mexico, 
and 113 at El Paso, Texas set new all-time records for those locations.  The 
mesonet station 4 miles south of Tipton, Oklahoma hit 120 degrees, to tie the 
state record high temperature.
