Paducah, KY – Kentucky and Missouri residents should prepare for a sweltering week as the heat index is expected to continue to climb to nearly 100 degrees through Tuesday. The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a warning about increasing temperatures and humidity, which will push the heat index readings between 95 and 100 degrees by Friday, continuing through Sunday.

According to the National Weather Service, the oppressive heat will persist throughout the weekend. Small chances of showers and thunderstorms may provide brief relief as a weak cold front is expected to arrive Sunday into Sunday night. However, the improvement will be temporary, with conditions predicted to ameliorate briefly on Monday before temperatures rise again.

The heat wave will significantly impact cities across the region, including Cape Girardeau, Carbondale, Evansville, Henderson, and Madisonville. Residents are advised to stay hydrated, avoid prolonged outdoor activities, and check on vulnerable populations, such as the elderly and young children.
