...Heat Advisory remains in effect through Tuesday...
With the extreme heat and humidity across the region Saturday
afternoon, there was plenty of energy for showers and thunderstorms
to feed on through the evening hours and even into early morning
hours. A large area of storms moved southward into southwest
Indiana around 6 PM, and then pushed steadily south and west across
most of west Kentucky and adjacent portions of southern Illinois
before dying out shortly after Midnight. Most locations received
between a quarter and a half inch of rainfall.
By 4 AM, a few showers were beginning to dip south into southwest
Indiana. Otherwise, skies were mostly clear and winds were light.
Temperatures were generally in the lower to middle 70s throughout
High pressure aloft will dominate the region for much of next week.
The dangerous heat and humidity, and small daily chances of
thunderstorms, will continue through at least Tuesday. There is a
chance that a cold front will dip into the area late Wednesday and
linger over the region through Friday. A better chance of showers
and thunderstorms is forecast from Thursday through Saturday. Even
though some cooling is expected through the week, most areas will
still have temperatures at or above normal through Friday.
