We are set-up for a nice break from the summer-like warmth and humidity we’ve seen all week across Kentucky and Southern Indiana just in time for the weekend! A cold front moving east of the area into early Saturday will push the muggy air out of Kentuckiana, replacing it with drier and milder air. As Canadian high pressure builds in, expected a very pleasant weekend with some sunshine and afternoon highs into the mid-70s! It should be ideal for any outdoor activities so get out and enjoy the final weekend of May as you keep your social distancing in mind. The good news is that we are looking at an extended stretch of dry weather with the tranquil conditions expected to continue as we kick off June into early next week.

The area of high pressure will slow drift southeastward through the Ohio Valley and over into the Carolinas by Tuesday. Afternoon highs will remain into the mid and upper 70s for the first day of June on Monday, but a southerly flow will kick in after that with highs expected to jump back into the mid-80s by Tuesday. Along with the warming trend will come a return of moisture and humidity as temperatures return to the upper 80s for highs by Wednesday. A weak cold front will drop into the region late next week so expect a few scattered storm chances back in the mix with a more summer-like feel to the air again with more warmth and humidity. Have a safe weekend!
