Afternoon highs trended slightly cooler this afternoon - the added cloud cover and moisture in the lower atmosphere helped keep our temperature in the River City a bearable 81°, though you could feel the added humidity in the air earlier on. A few isolated showers and storms remain possible through the dinner hours, but drier weather should settle in late tonight and linger into our Saturday morning.
Additional pop-up shower and thunderstorm development appears as though it will be most likely between the hours of 1PM and 7PM Saturday. Afternoon highs will again remain below the norm, but don't get too attached to these cooler-than-average temperatures, summer-like heat and humidity is seemingly never too far off from the Tri-State. Sunday looks drier and sunny - expect an afternoon high temperature near 87° with heat indices north of 90°.
Unfortunately, the mercury will continue to climb early next week; after reaching 89° (Heat Index: 94°) on Monday, Tuesday will hit 90° (Heat Index: 95°) and Wednesday should tip the scales at 92°, but could feel as hot as 97° at times with the heat index. Do your best to stay cool!
