Posted: Aug 18, 2021 9:16 AM

TODAY: The first half of the day will entail mostly cloudy skies with patchy fog that will be clearing by 9AM. Scattered showers and storms will make another attempt to develop this afternoon, especially south of the Ohio. Afternoon highs will soar into the upper-80s with heat indices in the lower-90s.

TONIGHT: Storm chances will increase after midnight as temperatures dip into the low-70s. Some storms could be capable of producing heavy downpours and lightning.

REST OF THE WEEK: Daily storm chances will continue to be a concern each afternoon and evening through Saturday. Upper-80s and 90s return just in time to kickoff your weekend.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
