CHRIS ALLEN'S AFTERNOON UPDATE
Tuesday, May 24, 2016
24-hour First Alert Forecast 270-467-0373
A BIT WARMER:
We reached the 80s for a second straight day Monday and we should have no trouble making it three in a row Tuesday! Despite a few more clouds in the afternoon, skies will remain mostly sunny tomorrow with humidity still fairly comfortable one more time. We cannot rule out an isolated shower or two, especially in parts of western Kentucky. Highs climb into the mid 80s in the afternoon. A few more clouds move in Tuesday night, but we should remain mostly dry. It will be noticeably warmer and more humid with lows only in the lower 60s.
MUGGY AND UNSETTLED:
As a frontal boundary stalls in the Plains, a series of disturbances will tap into Gulf moisture - aided by a Summer-like Bermuda high pressure ridge - to bring us widely scattered showers and thunderstorms beginning Wednesday through Friday. The best rain chances come during the afternoon to early evening with the daytime heating. Highs will stay warm and humid, mainly in the mid 80s, with lows mainly in the mid 60s.
MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND:
Go ahead and keep your outdoor plans for the holiday weekend but the forecast will continue to be warm and muggy with a daily chance of a shower or thunderstorm, especially during the afternoon hours. Highs will range from the mid to upper 80s with lows staying warm in the mid 60s.
