Oppressive heat to build across central Plains this week

  • Get ready for some serious heat and humidity building in this week with heat indices ~100 by Wednesday

We are finishing up a hot week across the Commonwealth.

Expect lows tonight near 73 and light winds.

Familiar heat and humidity are on the menu for our Sunday, and there's plenty more where that came from as a heat wave begins to build across Green Country.

Tuesday, it will be sunny with a high near 95, the weather service said.

Tomorrow: A handsome summer day tomorrow with highs in the mid 90s and mostly sunny skies! Additionally, with dew point values in the upper 60s and lower 70s, it was rather humid.

Wednesday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 77. The humidity will make those highs feel closer to 100. A dominant ridge of upper-level high pressure will be settling over the middle of the country, shutting off our rain chances and bringing us some of our hottest days of the year so far.

Friday: Sunny and hot, with a high near 99. We will be left with a partly to mostly cloudy sky and temps in the mid 70s for the overnight. The coverage of storms will peak during the afternoon, and again they will wind back down in the evening. There is also a slight chance of an afternoon or evening shower or thunderstorm as well, but the activity will be spotty.
