TODAY: The summer-like conditions continue sticking around the Tri-State as highs will be reaching the upper 80s this afternoon. While it's still going to be hot and humid, we're looking out for some changes this afternoon. We're tracking a cold front off to our northwest that will give us a good opportunity of some showers and thunderstorms this afternoon into the early evening (2PM-8PM). The Storm Prediction Center has placed our eastern communities under a "2" on the Threat Index for Severe Weather. The rest of our counties to the west will remain under a "1". The main threat for these storms is damaging winds. An isolated tornado can't be ruled out.
TONIGHT: Drying skies, with a few lingering showers will be possible late tonight into tomorrow morning. Overnight lows will drop into the upper 60s and low 70s. Winds will stay on the calm side.
REST OF THE WEEK: Dry conditions will return with plentiful sunshine Friday. We'll see a small dip from the oppressive humidity, but highs will still be in the upper 80s. This weekend will bring more rainfall from another front. The bulk of the storms look to fall Saturday night into Sunday morning as a cold front works across the Tri-State. Highs will remain in the mid to upper 80s.
