The weekend will feature very steamy mid-July temps, according to WKYT chief meteorologist Chris Bailey. Thunderstorms will eventually join the mix, ahead of a major pattern change moving in next week.
Saturday should see many areas in the upper 80s and low 90s, with a heat index making it feel a few degrees hotter. Still, the heat is nothing like our 4th of July week.
Storms possible Saturday and likely Sunday through Tuesday, Bailey said. On Bailey's blog, get more weather details.
