It was an active morning across the Tri-State with heavy rainfall and thunderstorms moving through the Tri-State. It was an absolute mess for much of western Kentucky. Our far southern communities had to deal with severe flash flooding - Greenville, KY received up to around 6" of rain in some areas. We even had a Tornado Warning for a short period of time in Muhlenberg County. Thankfully, there hasn’t been any serious damage reports from the storms.

While most of us have dried out, we're not done with the storms just yet. Dry skies should persist through the first half of the afternoon. Those will definitely help us reach the low 70s. The latest timeline has scattered showers and storms developing as soon as 2 PM. Some of those storms could produce stronger wind gusts and torrential downpours. The rain threat will be ending late tonight. Cooler and brighter conditions will follow for your Wednesday.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed Evansville and most communities along the Ohio River under a "1" out of 5 on the Severe Threat Index. For communities near and south of Owensboro are under a Slight Risk "2" for severe weather. The threat will last through midnight.

It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon throughout the Tri-State, but despite our seemingly endless supply of sunshine today, temperatures remained more than 10° cooler than the norm for this time of the year. Fortunately, today's peak temperature of 65° represents our coolest anticipated afternoon high temperature through the remainder of our extended forecast. While it is indeed encouraging that temperatures will gradually rise through the rest of the work week into the weekend ahead, we'll still have to deal with temperatures back down into the upper 30s and low 40s early Thursday morning.
