.DISCUSSION...Warmer temperatures will occur across eastern Kentucky
this afternoon in wake of departing high pressure. This in tandem with
dry low levels will produce minimum relative humidity values in the
25-35 percent range. South to southwest winds will increase to 5-10 mph
ahead of a cold front set to move through Saturday morning and early
afternoon, bringing a west/northwest wind shift Saturday afternoon with
RH values in the 50s. Cooler weather will settle in through the end of
the weekend underneath high pressure.
