Brutal Heat and Humidity Wednesday; Afternoon Rain Chances Continue

The summer-like trend will continue well into tomorrow and Friday. However, Friday could be the big break we’re all looking for.

Posted: Jul 8, 2020 11:10 AM

Today, we are expected to hit our seventh straight day of 90° temperatures across the Tri-State; heat indices are expected to soar into the triple digits this afternoon. We dipped down to 73° this morning, but temperatures quickly jumped into the 80s before 9 o’clock. With high pressure still in control, we’ll continue the stretch of hot and humid conditions across the Tri-State. We’re expected to reach a high of 93° today, with heat index values around 100. With the heat and humidity, a few shower and thunderstorm chances could pop up this afternoon.

The summer-like trend will continue well into tomorrow and Friday. However, Friday could be the big break we’re all looking for. A cold front is expected to move its way into the Tri-State, bringing us some healthy rain chances. It could put a damper on the heat and humidity. We may even dip back down into the 80s for the weekend!

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
