It was a soggy start across most of the Tri-State this morning. Moderate to heavy showers welcomed us out the door for much of the morning. There have been some pockets of dry time, but nothing that is long lasting. Temperatures were on the mild side, but haven’t moved much.

With the excessive amount of cloud cover and thunderstorm activity, highs will reach the low 70.

While there are still some showers across the Tri-State, our main concern is the line of thunderstorms expected to slide through late afternoon into tonight. If we see some drier conditions and daytime heating that could add to the potential of severe weather. Storms will continue to strengthen as the sun sets - some of the cells embedded within these clusters may produce wind gusts in excess of 50 mph along with heavy rainfall - as a result, our greatest threats from these storms will be damaging straight-line winds and flash flooding.

Due to the threat for potentially Severe Weather, the Storm Prediction Center has placed the majority of the region under a "1" on the Threat Index for late Wednesday afternoon and evening. The timeline for potentially strong storms will occur from 2PM through 10PM.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
