TODAY: High temperatures will have no problem reaching the mid to upper 80s along with keeping the humidity around. The Storm Prediction Center has placed the majority of the Tri-State under a “1” on the Threat Index for severe weather through today. As a cold front slides to the north of the area, we'll see a good opportunity of picking up showers and storms this afternoon and into tonight. The main threats from these storms are heavy rainfall and lightning.

TONIGHT: Showers and storms will slowly taper off tonight. It should stay primarily dry with temperatures dropping into the low 70s Saturday morning.

THIS WEEKEND: The damp conditions will be sticking around with highs in the mid 80s. Don't be looking for a washout, it will mainly stay scattered Saturday and Sunday. It should gradually taper off Sunday into Monday.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
