TODAY: It will be another hot and humid afternoon across the Tri-State. Highs will warm into the low to mid 90s. While there will be plenty of sunshine, isolated storms will be possible through the afternoon and into the early evening.

TUESDAY NIGHT: Temperatures will cool into the low-70s under partly cloudy skies. A pop-up shower can't be ruled out.

REST OF THE WEEK: An inbound cold front will give the area increasing shower and storm chances late Wednesday morning into Thursday night. Right now, the Storm Prediction Center has placed the majority of the Tri-State under a "1" on the Threat Index for severe weather Wednesday. The main threats to look out for are damaging winds and heavy rainfall that could cause flash flooding. By the time the front has passed the Tri-State there will get a nice break from the heat and humidity heading into the holiday weekend.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
