Most of the Tri-State is stepping out the door to cloudy and muggy conditions this Wednesday morning. Low temperatures across the region dipped down to the low to mid 70s. Unfortunately, dew points are on the higher side, making the air feel almost tropical-like.

A stalled cold front draped across our northernmost counties will gradually make its way across the Ohio River today, but it will do little to supply relief from our oppressive conditions. Cloudy skies and widespread rain will keep highs in the low to mid 80s, but heat index values will be headed towards the mid 90s once again today.

Thursday and Friday will keep the scattered rainfall around, with most of it dwindling Friday afternoon. Drier weather will return just in time for our weekend ahead. Mainly clear skies are expected to persist through our Saturday and Sunday. However, the oppressive heat and humidity combo will keep feels like temperatures in the mid to upper 90s each afternoon.

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.
