Temperatures across Warren County this afternoon reached the upper 80's as a strong upper level ridge continues to move in from the east. This strong ridge will be here to stay as dewpoints continue to rise and the humidity returns. These higher dewpoints have created enough instability to kick up some scattered showers and thunderstorms across southern Kentucky this afternoon. Thunderstorm activity remains relatively weak, with storms only producing a brief downpour and maybe a few rumbles of thunder. Otherwise partly cloudy skies can be expected for the remainder of the evening and into overnight. These scattered showers and thunderstorms should diminish with the loss of daytime heating. Low temperatures will fall into the lower 70s overnight.
