Record Setting Warmth This Week

A strong area of subtropical high pressure has brought record warmth to eastern Kentucky over the past week.  A weak cold front will bring slightly cooler weather from Friday through the upcoming weekend. In addition, the weather will turn more active starting on Friday, with showers and thunderstorms expected at times through Sunday. However, even with the arrival of a cooler air mass, temperatures will remain above normal. Another round of very mild weather is expected next week.
