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.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
