There is light at the end of the tunnel!! The stickiness is almost over!! We've just got to get through the next couple days of rain.

We are starting out this morning with soupy conditions across the Tri-State. Evansville hit 73° for an overnight low (marking our warmest start to a day in two weeks). These conditions are just a jumpstart to the oppressive afternoon we have on tap. Even though we'll have mostly overcast skies for today, temperatures are expected to hit the low 90s and heat indices nearing 100° at times. This is all expected before the rain showers Thursday afternoon.

Pop-Up showers and storms will be possible between 2PM and 8PM Thursday. Don't expect a washout by any means, but you may want an umbrella with you for your evening commute home in case you get caught in a shower. Even after the rainfall subsides, cloud cover and tropical humidity will continue to plague the Tri-State as the remnants of what is currently Hurricane Laura inches closer toward the Ohio Valley.

Around 1 a.m., Laura made landfall near Cameron, Louisiana, as a Category 4 storm, packing winds of 150 mph. Right now, the storm is churning over the state of Louisiana. It has weakened to a Category 2 hurricane, with sustained winds of 105 mph. While it's unlikely that we here in Tri-State will see tropical storm conditions, the Hurricane's remnants will certainly see to it that we receive our fair share of rainfall come Friday.
