Brutal Heat and Humidity Return

We're tracking high heat and humidity in the Tri-State.

Posted: Jul 23, 2021 4:16 PM

Another toasty day for the Tri-State - afternoon high temperatures reached into the upper 80s and low 90s earlier on with heat indices surpassing the 90° mark for many of us. The remainder of the day will stay dry and mild with temperatures gradually dwindling into the upper 60s and low 70s overnight and early Saturday morning. Following a relatively pleasant start to our Saturday, temperatures will again surge toward 90° for many of us (we'll reach 90° even in Evansville tomorrow), but with southerly winds forcing more humidity into the region, those highs near 90° could feel more like 96° or 97° at times tomorrow. Despite the added moisture in the atmosphere, conditions are expected to remain dry on Saturday.

The same however, cannot be said for our Sunday - a stalling cold front to our north that morning and afternoon may produce some scattered showers and thunderstorms. Our rain chances won't be the lead story by any means, especially when temperatures are expected to once again reach into the mid to low 90s. We'll hit a high of 93° in Evansville on Sunday, marking our hottest day since June 28th; dew point values inching toward 75° at times that afternoon could make it feel as hot as 105°! If you don't need to spend time outdoors on Sunday, don't - make the most of that air conditioning, because heat like that is nothing short of dangerous.

We woke up to dry and cold conditions this Tuesday morning. Unfortunately, there won’t be any drastic changes this afternoon. Increasing cloud cover will be likely as a cold northerly flow continues ushering in chilly air. Highs won’t be going very far, we’ll likely only reach the mid to upper 30s Tri-State wide. We’re tracking a little bit of winter weather out to our north and west. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight with a chance of flurries/light rain. It won't be a big snow by any stretch, but you could see some flurries flying Tuesday night into Wednesday morning around the Tri-State. Don't expect more than a dusting, with greater chances falling north of I-64.
