Brutal Heat Fuels Severe Weather Threat

Today's heat and humidity directly lead to this evening's Severe Weather threat.

While today brought about our hottest temperatures in over two weeks and heat indices approaching 105° at times, they're the least of our worries as that ample supply of heat and humidity will help fuel potentially Severe storms this evening. Current model data suggests that the storms currently affecting our westernmost counties will progress southeastward, reaching Evansville and Henderson by 10PM and Owensboro and Madisonville by 11PM before exiting east of the Tri-State between 12AM and 1AM.

Tuesday morning will indeed be quieter. Expect an overnight low near 72° and a few isolated showers early in the day - drier weather is anticipated for the afternoon, but highs will again reach back into the upper 80s and low 90s with heat indices lingering in the mid 90s. Pop-up showers and thunderstorms look as though they'll develop both Wednesday and Thursday afternoon as highs peak at 86° and 88° respectively those two days. Despite a drier weekend ahead, afternoon highs near 90° will certainly have folks seeking out the water.

There is some evidence however, among the long range model runs and the Climate Prediction Center that indicate an end to the brutal heat remains on the horizon. The latest trends project cooler conditions will return to the Ohio Valley late next week. It's possible that peak temperatures will dip to their lowest point since the end of May!

Wear Your Mask.
