There’s no surprise to your Thursday forecast! We’re stuck in repeat once again – warm, humid, and damp.
This morning was a bit challenging as dense fog settled across the Tri-State. We even had a Dense Fog Advisory for the far northwestern corner of the Tri-State. Some scattered showers fell on some of our communities and our temperatures were on the warm side -low 70s. Even after some of the showers ended in downtown Evansville, the humidity was near 100% at times.
Our Thursday afternoon should be primarily dry throughout the Tri-State with some isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms. Highs will reach the mid 80s and pairing those with the high humidity will be the root cause of those active conditions. The models are showing a lot of favoritism around and south of the Ohio River. Just be aware that some of those storms have enough energy to cause localized flooding.
Drying conditions will take over tonight into tomorrow morning. Very similar to our past mornings, temperatures will be in the low 70s with cloudy skies and some possible fog. Temperatures are expected to surge tomorrow afternoon and into the weekend. We'll reach 89° in the River City Friday afternoon. It may be nice to welcome some drier weather, but those humidity levels are going to be miserable for some. Heat Indices Friday afternoon could reach the mid 90s!
