HEAT ADVISORY through Monday evening for Allen, Barren, Breckinridge, Butler, Edmonson, Grayson, Green, Hardin, Hart, Larue, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe, Ohio, Simpson and Warren counties...and through Tuesday evening for Christian, Hopkins, McLean, Muhlenberg and Todd counties.

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE DAY:
Partly sunny, very hot and humid. Afternoon scattered storms likely.
10am: Partly Sunny 84°
1pm: Partly Sunny, Scat'd Storms 93°
4pm: Partly Sunny, Scat'd Storms 92°

A HOT WEEKEND:
An upper-level disturbance brought early morning showers that have disappeared as partly sunny skies, heat, and humidity return for the day. The moist and unstable set-up will give us the chance for scattered showers and storms again by the afternoon into the early evening.
Some storms could bring heavy rain, gusty winds, and intense lightning. Highs stay in the low to mid 90s both days with triple digit heat indices. Overnight lows will be warm and muggy, falling only into the mid 70s.

GRADUAL COOLDOWN:
High pressure responsible for our heat wave slowly breaks down next week. It remains hot and humid Monday through Wednesday before cooler temperatures arrive late in the week. We'll stand a chance for an isolated late day thundershower Monday, with better chances for scattered storms Thursday and Friday.
