THIS AFTERNOON: A passing shower or two will be possible for communities south of the Ohio through the afternoon and early-evening. Most of Tri State will continue to see the dominance of mostly cloudy skies with a few glimmers of sunshine. The mercury will peak into mid-80s. Heat indices will max in the low-90s.

TONIGHT: Skies will ultimately clear. Overnight lows will dip into the upper-60s.

FRIDAY & WEEKEND: We close out the workweek with the continuation of the typical summer-like pattern. Friday highs will approach the upper-80s. Isolated pockets of showers and storms will develop through the peak heating time of the day. Widespread chances of storms will be possible Saturday as an inbound cold front swing close to the area. Conditions remain hot and humid for Sunday under sunny skies.

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.
