Oppressive Conditions Continue Wednesday; Rain Chances Moving In

We're going to be looking out for another steamy day across the Tri-State. Cloud cover will thicken through the day and rain chances will become likely late afternoon. Highs are expected to top out in the low 90s.

Oh man!! It's going to be another hot and humid day, but relief will be moving our way! We just have to get through the next few days.

We're starting off this Wednesday with clear skies and muggy conditions once again. Most of our areas woke up to temperatures in the upper 60s and low 70s. Evansville hit a morning low of 70°, but it's a steamy one. Dew points kicked off in the high 60s once again. We're going to be hanging on to the oppressive conditions today and it could be the start of some messy weather.

Afternoon high temperatures will reach back into the upper 80s and low 90s during Wednesday and Thursday; dew point values however, will soar back into the mid 70s - that means that despite the stray shower, storm and added cloud cover both days, it could feel as hot as 101° at times! As far as that rainfall is concerned, isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible later this afternoon, into the early evening hours.

We'll dry off overnight with partly cloudy skies and temperatures dipping down into the low 70s. Our communities north of the Ohio will be under the greatest risk of showers and storms late Thursday morning and afternoon. The heaviest anticipated rain unfortunately, will be reserved for Friday.

The remnants of Hurricane Laura, currently centralized in the Gulf, may make a beeline for the Tri-State after the tropical system makes landfall along the Texas/Louisiana coastline early Thursday morning. The latest model data indicates that the tropical depression (formerly known as Laura) will reach our neck of the the Ohio Valley late Thursday night before exiting east Friday night/Saturday morning. By the time it's all said and done, some areas south of the Ohio could see an additional 1.25" of rainfall from Laura alone.
