Say Goodbye to Our Cool Temperatures

Brutal heat and humidity return just in time for our weekend.

Though today marked August's warmest afternoon to date in the city of Evansville; all things considered, 84° ain't too shabby for this time of the year, especially when you consider the lack of humidity earlier today. Overnight low temperatures will again dip toward the upper 50s and low 60s area-wide for a fifth straight morning. If you didn't have a chance to enjoy the cooler conditions this week, you have one last chance to do so - tomorrow morning. From a 61° morning low around 6AM to 68° at 8AM, we're not expected to reach 80° until 10AM or so.

Unfortunately, the mercury won't stop climbing at 10 o'clock in the morning - we're headed for an afternoon high of 89° in Evansville on Saturday. Humidity, while higher tomorrow, won't quite be a problem until Sunday and Monday; dew point values in the mid to low 70s will take temperatures in the low 90s and make them feel more like 100° or even 105° at times those two days. The brutal heat won't be the only problem early next week either, a stalling frontal boundary interacting with our ample supply of heat and humidity across the Tri-State will fuel shower and thunderstorm activity each and every afternoon moving forward.

Wear Your Mask.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
