Another day in paradise right? Today's afternoon highs in the upper 70s and low 80s marked our third straight day of such, though it looks as though that streak will come to an end as early as tomorrow afternoon. At least the night and morning ahead will remain quite pleasant. Overnight lows will again dip toward the upper 50s and low 60s; Evansville's low of 60° even will be 6° below the average for this time of the year.
While winds will remain from the north Friday afternoon, temperatures will still tick up across the region - we'll tip the scales at 84° as we wrap up the work week - our warmest afternoon of the month of August thus far. That being said, it most certainly will not remain our hottest August day for long. Temperatures are expected to soar during the weekend ahead.
After reaching 88° on Saturday, we'll head for the 90s on Sunday; expect an afternoon high near 91° with heat indices that day exceeding 100° at times. The combination of heat and humidity will keep the heat index up around 100° to 102° through at least next Wednesday. During the same period, a stalled frontal boundary will feed off that ample supply of heat and humidity and generate scattered showers and storms.
I hope you enjoyed the cool weather while it lasted.
