TUESDAY: It's going to be a scorcher out there today!! Primarily dry conditions will be with us through the day, but that's only going to help temperatures heat up to extreme levels. Some areas will reach the low 90s under partly sunny skies, but with the oppressive humidity our heat indices will reach the triple digits. We're tracking scattered showers and storms, but those that fall through the day will be on the isolated side. The greatest chance of stronger storms will fall tonight into the early hours of Wednesday.
TUESDAY NIGHT: The Storm Prediction Center has placed the majority of the Tri-State under a "1" on the Threat Index for Severe Weather. Most of the storm chances that fall tonight could produce strong winds and heavy rainfall. The Tri-State will dry out by daybreak with temperatures in the 70s.
REST OF THE WEEK: The damp trend should be with us through the first part of the week. Most showers and storms will taper off over the next several days. It's going to be hot and humid for much of the week. Tomorrow could be quite miserable once again with highs in the low 90s and heat index values surpassing 100°. Conditions will lighten up this weekend, when highs drop back into the mid 80s under mostly sunny skies.
