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.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
