Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Kentucky
National Weather Service Jackson KY
635 AM EDT Sun Jul 23 2017

...A Stormy Day then Drier and Less Humid...

.DISCUSSION...Hot and humid conditions will persist across the
area for one more day with highs around 90. The hot temperatures
will combine with high humidity to drive heat index values in the
90s once again, but relief is just over the horizon as a cold
front bears down on the area by Monday. The frontal system is
bringing showers and thunderstorms to the area today as it
approaches from the northwest. Look for this cold front to also
bring a change of air mass to eastern Kentucky...dropping our
daily highs into the mid and upper 80s and overnight lows into the
mid and upper 60s through the upcoming week with much more
comfortable humidity levels.
