-- Changed Discussion --
(THIS EVENING THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT) ISSUED AT 314 PM EDT TUE AUG 26 2014 STRONG RIDGING CONTINUES TO HOLD OVER KENTUCKY TODAY YIELDING A FAIRLY PLEASANT AFTERNOON FOR LATE AUGUST. EAST-NORTHEAST WINDS CONTINUE TO TRANSPORT DRIER AIR INTO THE AREA FROM THE EAST...KEEPING HUMIDITY LEVELS DOWN. WITH SKIES CLEAR TONIGHT...WE SHOULD SEE ANOTHER NIGHT OF COOL TEMPERATURES WITH LOWS IN THE EASTERN VALLEYS FALLING TO AROUND 60. AS IS TYPICAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR...MORE RIVER VALLEY FOG WILL OCCUR TONIGHT. A FAIRLY SIMILAR DAY IS EXPECTED TOMORROW. HOWEVER...A WASHED OUT FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL DRIFT SOUTH INTO NORTHERN KENTUCKY LATE IN THE DAY...AND COULD SPARK ISOLATED SHOWERS OR STORMS. NOT MUCH FORCING WITH THIS FEATURE...SO COVERAGE SHOULD BE FAIRLY LIMITED. ANY SHOWERS AND STORMS THAT DEVELOP SHOULD DISSIPATE WITH LOSS OF INSTABILITY TOMORROW EVENING...LEAVING A ANOTHER DRY NIGHT. DEWPOINTS WILL CREEP UP TOMORROW NIGHT AS THE WASHED OUT BOUNDARY HELPS TO POOL A BIT HIGHER DEWPOINTS. THUS...IF WE CAN CLEAR THE CLOUDS OUT ENOUGH...WE COULD BE LOOKING AT A BIT BETTER FOG POTENTIAL. LOWS WILL ALSO BE A TAD MILDER ONLY FALLING INTO THE MID 60S. .LONG TERM...(THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY) ISSUED AT 314 PM EDT TUE AUG 26 2014 LONG TERM DISCUSSION TO FOLLOW SHORTLY.
