MONDAY: After starting out with temperatures in the 60s and foggy skies, we're heating up! It's going to feel very similar to your Sunday. Partly sunny skies with highs in the upper-80s. Dew points have been on the rise, which is going to make it feel even hotter. Expect heat indices to be around the mid-to-upper 90s this afternoon.

MONDAY NIGHT: Skies will become mostly clear, but that's not going to help our temperatures drop. The southerly flow is on the strong side. Overnight lows will only dip into the upper-60s by daybreak Tuesday.

REST OF THE WEEK: Isolated pockets of showers will be possible as Tuesday afternoon, but greater chances of showers and thunderstorms will be likely late Tuesday and into early Wednesday. Those chances of rain will be associated with a cold front coming from the northwest that will give us a good chance of rain and a short cool down. Wednesday and Thursday will be back in the low-to-mid 80s. Humidity levels will drop to more comfortable levels, too.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
