TODAY: We'll continue the summer-like and seasonable conditions. It should stay mostly to partly sunny, but the smoke from the western wildfires is still putting a hazy look to the skies across the region. We'll remain rain free with a high temperature of 88° in the River City. Winds will stay out of the ESE at 5-10 MPH.

TONIGHT: Clear skies will persist with temperatures dipping into the upper 60s and lower 70s. The River City will be waking up to a low temperature of 70° tomorrow morning.

HEADING INTO THE WEEKEND: Conditions have remained pretty comfortable for the month of July here lately, but the heat and humidity will be ramping up over the weekend into next week. Saturday will be mostly sunny with peak temperatures reaching the 91° with dew points surpassing 70°. Sunday looks to be a little more unsettling. A combination of heat and humidity will make it feel more tropical like with highs in the mid 90s and heat indices nearing the triple digits. There are also signs of isolated downpours through the afternoon.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
