We could see more short-lived popcorn showers and storms tomorrow evening heading into the nighttime hours tomorrow. We’ll see partly cloudy and hot conditions otherwise. The big weather story comes next week. We’ll have widespread showers and thunderstorms pushing along a cold front to kick off our work week. By then, Hurricane Ida will have made landfall along the Louisiana coast, bringing with it 10-14″ of rain in that region! The remnants of it will arrive to the South Central Kentucky area by Tuesday afternoon. It’s expected to bring cooler temperatures and more showers! This will be combined with another stalled front which will ultimately enhance rain chances through the mid-week. Main threats associated with this is localized flooding, strong wind gusts, and heavy rainfall. As of now, models are showing our area getting anywhere from 1-3″ of rain by Wednesday night. Daytime highs will take a tumble by then, with the coolest day being Tuesday. Daytime highs will be in the upper 70s by then! Afternoon temperatures will struggle to make it our of the low to mid 80s through the end of the work week and through next weekend as well. Overall, we’re looking at some relief from the heat and dry conditions through the next several days!
