You can sum up this week's Kentucky weather like this: It's hot and about to get hotter; it's dry and about to get drier. The National Weather Services says that while Tuesday will be pleasant in Lexington, with a high around 79, temperatures will skyrocket later this week, hitting the high 90s by Friday. Meanwhile, there's little chance of rain.
