Pop-Up Rain Lingers

With all this heat and humidity, scattered rainfall remains in the forecast.

Posted: Jul 6, 2021 10:23 PM

Yet another afternoon of brutal heat and humidity - today's afternoon high of 92° marked the River City's hottest in a week; worse yet, heat indices pushed into the upper 90s at times earlier today. Some of us even dealt with a few sporadic showers and storms this afternoon and evening due to the combination of muggy air and summer-like temperatures. The mercury will gradually dwindle into the mid to low 70s making for a particularly mild start to our Midweek. After seeing 72° early Wednesday morning, temperatures will quickly surge back into the upper 80s and low 90s across the Tri-State.

Current model data suggests that we'll peak in the low 90s once again tomorrow afternoon, hitting 90° even in Evansville with "feels like" temperatures above 95°. With no organized systems or fronts anticipated tomorrow, the stagnate conditions will allow for the redevelopment of pop-up showers and thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon and early evening. While our rain chances aren't necessarily expected to be widespread, you may still want to have an umbrella handy in case you get caught in one of those showers tomorrow.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
