...Showers and Storms Return Today......

A line of showers and storms has formed as of 4 PM, reaching from the Northern Bluegrass and southwest into Western Kentucky. This line will continue to push eastward this evening. Some strong to severe storms are possible with damaging winds as the main threat. Nonetheless, any storm will be capable of producing heavy rain and frequent lightning.

Most activity should be located across the eastern half of the state by the time the sun goes down. Dry conditions return tomorrow and other than a few showers on Saturday, most look to remain dry through the weekend.

Isolated coverage is currently in the forecast for the eclipse on Monday, but confidence is still fairly low. More to come tomorrow. Saying that, summer heat and humidity will return going into next week. Back in the middle 80s to low 90s by Sunday.
