...Summer-like Weather Continues into the Weekend...

Today is the first day of meteorological fall, but don't expect fall like conditions anytime soon. Through the upcoming week, look for hot and humid conditions on a daily basis with a mostly dry pattern sticking around. After a mild night, highs tomorrow will reach into the upper 80s to low 90s for the entire state. Heat indices peaking in the mid 90s are expected for portions of Central and Western Kentucky. These locations will see livestock heat stress move into the danger category.

Other than some isolated activity across the Northern Bluegrass and Eastern Kentucky, most will remain dry through the upcoming weekend.
