It was another damp start to our day. This morning was quite the mess after waking up to dense fog and strong storms. Temperatures were quite mild to start, but they won't be soaring much this afternoon. We’re still stuck in an unseasonably cool weather pattern. Highs will be in the mid 70s this afternoon with scattered storm chances.

We're tracking a core of low pressure that is moving to the northeast. Rainfall developing along the back edge of the departing system will continue to impact the Tri-State though this afternoon. The latest model data suggests that the last of our organized rain chances should exit east of the area by late this afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has placed our far southeastern communities under a "1" on the Threat Index for Severe Weather. The main threats this afternoon will be damaging winds and heavy rainfall.

As the damp trend comes to an end, we’ll be welcoming your Ohio River Valley summer-like trend. Dry skies will take over tonight into tomorrow morning. Expect your Friday morning to be a bit cooler in the low 60s. Friday will be a nice end to the work week. We’ll filter in lots of sunshine with highs reaching the mid 80s.

It's a seasonable and dry start to Friday, but the heat is going to turn up this afternoon. Partly sunny skies will stick around with highs in the mid to upper 80s. The humidity may take the way it feels up a notch. Those southerly winds will help push in that moisture making it feel more like the low 90s. An isolated shower can't be ruled out, but any rainfall won't ruin our plans.
