⚠️ Special Weather Statement ⚠️
Special Weather Statement issued June 17 at 3:35AM EDT by NWS Louisville KY
The combination of hot and humid conditions will result in peak heat index values near or slightly exceeding 100 degrees this afternoon and evening.
If working or spending an extended period of time outside today, remember to drink plenty of water and take breaks in the shade or air-conditioned areas. Loose-fitting and light-colored clothing is recommended. Be sure to check on those most vulnerable to heat, including children, the elderly, and anyone without access to air conditioning. Provide shade and fresh water for outdoor pets and livestock.
Remember to always look before you lock! Never leave children or pets unattended in a parked vehicle. The interior of a vehicle can reach deadly temperatures in a matter of minutes.

A prolonged heat wave is expected this week. Spotty rain chances today, but dry Wednesday through Saturday. Highs in the 90s all week, with the heat index around 100 this afternoon. Drink plenty of water and take breaks in the shade or AC if you’re active outside!
Hot temperatures will continue through the week. People working outdoors and those without access to air conditioning will be most impacted. #kywx #inwx
