A pleasant Saturday is in store for the plateau, with low humidity and comfortable temps. Sunday is looking nice as well, though we will need to be mindful for a chance of storms that may drop in from Kentucky in the evening. Those chances look highest from Jamestown north. Starting Monday, a hot-hazy-humid pattern evolves and that will lead to several days of uncomfortable afternoons. We’ll need to be safe in the heat and stay close to the shade and water next week! Each day offers only a slight risk for an afternoon heat-of-the-day storm.
