Muggy Air = Storm Potential

From Jude Redfield...

    Low humidity arrived yesterday and has no notion of leaving just yet. Today's feel factor is in the comfy range for all lovers of arid air. Dew point chart shows slightly higher levels of moisture Thursday, but the noticeable change hits Friday. All things considered it's hard to complain as long as the dew point stays below 70. Dew points by Friday evening will be closer to 70 as the sticky comes on strong.

    This time of the year an increase in moisture usually helps aid in shower/storm formation. We should see that develop tomorrow. Spotty downpours are possible after midnight tonight (10%). More stray showers/storms flare up Thursday (20%). Friday's chance is closer to (40%) with the cold front in the vicinity.

    A quick look at the kickoff of the Kentucky State Fair indicates temps at or slightly below average. Looks like a relatively calm beginning when it comes to our rain/storm chances. The first full week of the fair could bring back the hotter conditions with temps surging to near 90.
