...Hot and Humid Through Mid-Week; Then Cooler...

Other than a few isolated showers and storms this evening, most will remain dry. A better chance comes tomorrow as a cold front moves through the area, but coverage is expected to remain scattered in nature. Behind the boundary, much cooler and less humid conditions will filter into the Bluegrass State. Look for highs in the upper 70s to middle 80s on Thursday and Friday. Dry conditions will hold through the holiday weekend.
