Outside of a few isolated showers and storms for some of our southernmost Kentuckian communities, conditions should remain quite dry and quiet this evening and overnight. That being said, one shouldn't expect a comfortable evening ahead - if you're headed out for the night or maybe taking in your first high school football game of the season, you'll most certainly want to dress light. Temperatures today topped out in the mid to upper 80s with heat indices in the mid to low 90s. The evening ahead won't be all that much cooler - after seeing a temperature of 84° around dinnertime, we'll fall to just 77° around 10PM before dipping to just 71° during the predawn hours Saturday.
As for Saturday, you may want to have that umbrella handy, especially between the hours of 10AM and 2 PM; it's during that four-hour period that a cluster of showers and storms will roll southeastward across the Tri-State producing some damp conditions during the late morning and early afternoon. Fortunately, we're no longer expecting and potentially strong to Severe storms to be a part of this disturbance Saturday. Even with the added rainfall however, temperatures will still climb higher throughout the Tri-State; We'll see our first 90° day in Evansville in just over a week - we'll hit 90° even right about 3PM Saturday, but with all the humidity left over from the passing rainfall, it could feel more like 100° at times tomorrow afternoon.
Sunday doesn't look all that much better. While we're not currently anticipating any rainfall as we wrap up the upcoming weekend, the added sunshine will help drive temperatures a degree or two high throughout the Ohio Valley. The forecast data suggests we'll hit 91° in Evansville with a "feels like" temperature back in the triple digits! Worse yet, this weekend's heat and humidity will essentially set the stage for even hotter and more uncomfortable weather, giving away to temperatures in the mid 90s on Monday with heat indices ranging between 100° and 105° as we kick off the work week ahead.
