More Rain Now, 70s Later

Another round of rainfall heads for the Tri-State, but drier weather draws closer to the region.

Posted: Aug 13, 2020 11:10 PM

It was another damp day across the Tri-State - While isolated heavy shower and thunderstorm activity kept the heaviest amount quite localized, many of us still saw over an inch of rainfall on Thursday. Friday looks as though it will be similar to our Thursday. Following a dry start to the day, shower and thunderstorm activity will develop beginning after 9AM. Expect another round of widespread rainfall with some of us receiving more than 0.50" of additional precipitation.

After reaching toward 85° on Friday, the mercury will surge back to 87° in Evansville on Saturday. Mostly sunny skies and high humidity may make it feel as hot as 92° at times Saturday afternoon. I'm tracking yet another weather system being driven into the region by a passing cold front that will reach the area on Sunday. While it is indeed expected to supply the region with some light rainfall that day, it will also finally usher in cooler and more comfortable air into the Tri-State.

After only reaching highs near 84° on Sunday, we'll dip to 81° on Monday and fall back into the 70s on Tuesday for the first time in almost two weeks! High temperatures will only reach 78° and 79° on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively. Get excited!

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
