Brutal Heat Heads for the Tri-State

Our hottest weather of the season will arrive just in time for the weekend.

Posted: Jun 10, 2021 6:21 PM

Temperatures again struggled to climb much higher than the low 80s across the Tri-State today, but considering the amount of cloud cover, rainfall and humidity in the atmosphere we dealt with, it doesn't exactly come as a surprise. One can expect drier conditions through the remainder of the evening and overnight hours here in Evansville - the rain chances may wain, but our temperatures will remain quite mild. Our anticipated overnight low of 69° is about 5° warmer than the norm for this time of the year. The mild start to the day will allow temperatures to get a running head start on what may end up being our warmest day in nearly 3 weeks.

Friday afternoon looks as though it will be drier overall; while we may still see a few isolated showers form during the early afternoon, we'll also deal with a good amount of sunshine. The added sunshine Friday will allow the mercury to soar to its highest point since May 25th, matching that day's high of 89°. Worse yet, dew points will be downright tropical, making it feel as hot as 95° at times Friday afternoon! Believe it or not, things are about to get even hotter than that - if the current forecast holds, Saturday could be our hottest day in 10 months! Saturday will be 92° in Evansville; while the combination of high heat and humidity may produce a few stray showers, the rain chances will take a back seat to the oppressive heat. Heat indices on Saturday afternoon may approach the triple digits at times - if you don't have to spend time outdoors on Saturday, maybe keep those weekend activities indoors.
