Hot & Humid Tuesday: Tracking Evening Rain Chances

We're waking up to warm and muggy conditions across the Tri-State. It will continuously get warmer this afternoon, but that could help fuel some storms late today and into tonight.

TUESDAY: After starting out with temperatures in the 60s and 70s, the heat is going to be on this afternoon! It's going to feel very similar to yesterday. Partly sunny skies with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Dew points have been on the rise, which is going to make it feel even hotter. Expect heat indices to be around the mid 90s this afternoon. There is no doubt the heat and humidity could help produce some isolated showers, but the greater chances look to fall tonight.

TUESDAY NIGHT: Skies will become more cloudy as our next cold front closes in on the Tri-State. Rain and thunderstorm chances will be possible through the overnight hours. The Storm Prediction Center has placed areas around and north of I-64 under a "1" on the Threat Index for Severe Weather. Even though winds will work on shifting, the heavy cloud cover will only allow us to drop into the low 70s. 

REST OF THE WEEK: Isolated pockets of showers will be possible through Wednesday. The rain won't only add some relief to our dry surfaces, but give us a short cool down Wednesday and Thursday. We'll be back in the low-to-mid 80s both days. Humidity levels will drop to more comfortable levels, too.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another unseasonably warm day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Some areas could even see temperatures well into the 70s. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning. We won't see any rain from this front, but it will cool temperatures into the low 40s by Saturday morning.
