Iíve lived in Kentucky for over 9 years.
For years I have observed the weather and always note the normal temperatures (in the newspaper) for any given day.
My analysis:
The below normal temperatures (usually by double digits) occur February, March, and April. If normal is 50, it will be 36, at best. Cold, gusty winds blow during below normal. Clouds prevent the sunís warming effect.
May is transition month which can be quite pleasant.
The above normal temperatures occur possibly as early as June, but certainly during July and August, sometimes into September. The sun, in cloudless sky becomes a raging ball of merciless hellfire. There are no distinct clouds, but a constant humid haze. Maybe a slight breeze during daylight hours. No air movement during above normal. Especially at night. A candle placed outdoors will burn straight up with hardly a flicker.
Summer thunderstorms: dark sky, flashing lightning, rumbling thunder, 5 drops of rain. Heavier rainfall runs off the dry, hard ground into ditches and drains. Try this, after a rainfall scoop a shovel. The moisture goes no deeper than one inch.
Kentuckyís annual drought begins mid-June and ends in mid-September. I can spit more in five minutes than it will rain during that period.
The pleasant months in Kentucky are May, October, maybe November. The other months are crap.

Today the high near Murray was around 98, but the humidity was down. I had no problem working outdoors today. When it's 100% humidity, I sweat like crazy.

I don't mind the KY weather. It presents challenges sometimes, but it's not that bad.

I had to drive to Hoptown this morning and it was fairly humid then. With my 3/60 air conditioning (3 windows open, 60 MPH) I was comfortable.
