Summer-Like End to the Work Week

Temperatures reach up toward the 90s as more humidity rolls into the Ohio Valley.

Posted: Aug 18, 2021 8:28 PM

Showers and storms continue to roll across portions of the Tri-State this evening and will continue to do so overnight and even into the predawn hours Thursday. Overnight low temperatures will only dip as low as the upper 60s and low 70s throughout the region, setting the stage for yet another mild and muggy day ahead. After reaching 80° around our lunch hour, the mercury will peak near 85° a few hours later with "feels like" temperatures in the low 90s. Current model data suggests there's still a slim chance for an isolated shower or two, but I'm anticipating a primarily dry, albeit mostly cloudy day for the Tri-State. The skies are however, expected to clear as the late afternoon rolls into the evening. Feel free to fire up that grill tomorrow evening; outside of some humidity, conditions will be quite pleasant.

The overnight low will again dive toward 70° in the River City early Friday morning. Our Friday ahead will resemble our Thursday in many ways - expect mild and muggy weather with a stray shower or two under a mix of sun and clouds. There will be one difference though, southerly winds will be surging as high as 10 or even 15 mph; the added southerly wind flow paired with the sunshine we'll see that afternoon will drive temperatures back into the upper 80s and even low 90s in a few spots. Worse yet, dew point values above the 70° mark will make those temperatures in the upper 80s feel more like 94° or 95° on Friday afternoon!

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.
