After Days of Heat, Relief On Way

Sep 4, 2011

Central Kentuckians who suffered through the sweltering heat of the past several days can take heart: Monday's high should be about 30 degrees lower than Saturday's. Saturday's high of 98 degrees in Lexington was 2 degrees shy of the record for the day, set in 1953, said Brian Schoettmer, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Louisville. It was the fourth straight day with a high in the 90s. But he said "the first powerful cold front" of the season is on the way.
