Brutally Hot Saturday Ahead

Our hottest weather in almost a year arrives Saturday.

Posted: Jun 11, 2021 4:16 PM

It's hot. It's humid. It's downright brutal out there. Unfortunately, it looks like we're only going to get hotter and more uncomfortable. Our ample amount of sunshine sent our temperatures soaring to their highest point in nearly three weeks. Worse yet, the tropical humidity that has settled into the Ohio Valley over these last few days has made things feel even more sweltering. If there's a silver lining here, it's the fact that we won't have to deal with any scattered rainfall this evening - temperatures will bounce from the mid 80s around dinnertime toward the upper 70s by 10PM this evening. The sheer amount of moisture at the surface however, will keep temperatures from dropping much further than the mid to low 70s overnight; we'll only fall to 73° in the River City early Saturday.

Our Saturday looks as though it will be our hottest day In Evansville in nearly a year! The current model data suggests that we'll tip the scales at 92° - if that forecast holds, it will mark our hottest afternoon since August 10th of 2020 when we hit 93°. But the heat is only one half of the equation, remember that the oppressive humidity isn't going anywhere quite yet, leaving us with dew points values above 70° and "feels like" temperatures approaching the triple digits at times - Saturday afternoon will be nothing short of cruel. A passing cold front however, Saturday evening will bring about our next chance of showers and thunderstorms that night. Don't expect any relief from the heat quite yet, though our humidity won't be quite as palpable come Sunday; expect an afternoon high on Sunday near 88°.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
