Get ready for the summer-like heat to make its return to the Tri-State, but only temporairly.

While we are going to see a steamy day ahead of us, temperatures are starting off in the mid to upper 60s across the area. Your Tuesday morning is actually quite pleasant with the clear and calm conditions. Unfortunately, we can't keep the cooler weather as we head into Tuesday afternoon. It's going to be a hot one!! High temperatures are going to top out in the low 90s.

Our weather conditions are playing out because a complex of high pressure is settled over the southeastern quarter of the country. It is actually keeping the frontal boundary to our north from moving down into the Tri-State. We won't see any relief from the heat until that front passes to our south.

Temperatures are going to stay in the high 80s and low 90s through Thursday. Humidity levels are going to be on the higher side, but thankfully it won't be feeling tropical-like. There is relief on the way though! A frontal boundary is expected to pass through late Thursday night into early Friday. Right now, there isn't any rain that's expected to hit the Tri-State, but it will bring us cooler temperatures!

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
