THURSDAY: It's going to be a scorcher out there once again, folks!! Clear conditions will be with us through the day, but that's only going to help us heat up to extreme levels for the third day in a row. Some areas will reach the mid 90s, but with the strong southerly flow pumping in oppressive humidity our heat indices will reach the triple digits. The Heat Advisory should be over for us after today. It is unlikely we’ll see any rainfall, but there is always a possibility of a pop up shower because of the strong heat and humidity.

THURSDAY NIGHT: It will be dry and clear for the first part of the evening, but some unsettling conditions could move in as early as tomorrow morning. We won't see a huge drop in temperatures. The Tri-State will drop into the mid 70s Thursday morning.

REST OF THE WEEK: Friday is going to be the day of changing the weather pattern. We're tracking a cold front that will bring some widespread rainfall Friday. The Storm Prediction Center has placed the majority of the Tri-State under a "1" on the Threat Index for Severe Weather. This storm system will bring some much needed relief to our area. Not only will our lawns green up a bit, but afternoon highs will drop back into the mid 80s under mostly sunny skies this weekend.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
