...Heat & Humidity For Today & Tuesday...

Some isolated activity has fired across Southeastern Kentucky this evening, but for the most part, dry conditions have won out. Heat has been the main story as most sit in the low to middle 90s this afternoon. High humidity has pushed heat indices over 100 degrees for many this afternoon.

Looking forward, the heat remains for a couple more days. Livestock heat stress will mostly rise into the Danger Category during the afternoon this week, except for periods of Emergency Category in the West.

Models do hint at line of storms pushing into the area later tomorrow afternoon/evening. Some storms could be strong to severe. Otherwise, more chances follow over the second half of the week as a front stalls across the region. Thus far through the month of August, the state has only averaged 0.92 inches.
