Skies are mostly sunny late this morning with a slightly drier air mass over the forecast area. Dewpoints are expected to be in the lower to mid 60s this afternoon which is several degrees lower than yesterdays. A weak cold front lies to the south and a weak surface low was located near the Indiana/Illinois border with a warm front over the lower Ohio Valley. Some thunderstorms were developing over far western KY ahead of the warm front. Some high and mid clouds had moved into the forecast area ahead of the warm front but were dissipating late this morning. Higher pressure will slowly build over the eastern Tennessee Valley over the next 24 hours. Temperatures are expected to continue climbing from the lower to mid 70s to the mid 80s to lower 90s by mid to late afternoon near average for this time of year. Cloud development will be limited with a little more sky cover over the mountains. Winds will be light and variable to light west to southwest. Current forecast looks good so no update planned.
