TODAY: It is a warm and soupy start to our Friday. Temperatures started out in the mid 70s under mostly cloudy skies. The humidity has really taken off, putting dew points in the 70s. Heading into the afternoon, the combination of strong southerly winds and humidity will give us a summer-like day across the Tri-State - highs reaching the upper 80s. We're also tracking shower and thunderstorm chances through your Friday.

FRIDAY NIGHT: Shower and thunderstorm chances have the potential of becoming stronger late tonight into early Saturday morning (especially if you live north of I-64). The Storm Prediction Center has placed us under a "1” on the Threat Index for our far northwestern half of the Tri-State. The main threats are looking to be damaging winds and heavy rainfall that could cause flash flooding tonight. We'll keep the cloud cover, keeping us on the warm side tomorrow morning. Expect temperatures to be in the mid 70s as you're waking up Saturday.

WEEKEND INTO NEXT WEEK: We're expected to still see plenty of sunshine Saturday and Sunday. Highs will have no problem reaching the low 90s, with muggy conditions. Isolated showers and storms will be likely. Rainfall will become more widespread heading into next week. While it may not be a washout, it's a good idea to keep the rain gear near you.

Today's high temperature of 87° was our warmest in a week and a half - we last climbed that high on the afternoon of September 18th when we tipped the scales at 88°. The remainder of the evening will remain quite mild under clear skies; expect temperatures to first fall to 83° by dinnertime before dropping to 73° by 10PM. The clear skies and weak southerly wind flow will help keep temperatures relatively stable during the overnight and predawn hours - we'll wake up to a morning low of just 62° early Wednesday morning.
