Sunny and Scorching Tuesday

It's a good day to stay by the AC today. We're already feeling the muggy conditions this morning and they're not going anywhere. Highs will top out in the low 90s with heat index values nearing the triple digits.

Are you tired of the heat and humidity? Get ready for another day of it!

We're kicking off this Tuesday morning with muggy and foggy conditions across the Tri-State. Temperatures are on the mild side. Most of our communities are walking out the door to high 60s and low 70s, but it's those dew points in the high 60s that's making the air feel muggy. Unfortunately, the oppressive like weather will be hanging on for today.

Expect plentiful sunshine and temperatures creeping into the upper 80s and low 90s for your Tuesday. That's not even the worst part, heat index values will be soaring near the triple digits this afternoon. We'll cool down tonight with clear skies and lows dipping down into the 70s.

However, we could begin to see some changes during the second half of our Wednesday - scattered rainfall will push northward from the gulf ahead of what may end up being our next major weather maker.

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.
