TODAY: Most of the day will include sunny skies with temperatures approaching the upper-80s. Heat indices will max in the mid-90s. Through the peak-heating time of the day there is a small chance of a brief shower or two for communities along HWY 60. Most locations will remain rain-free through the afternoon and evening.

WEEKEND: It will be another foggy start Saturday and Sunday. Storm chances will increase from west-to-east starting at 10AM and exiting the Tri State by 4PM Saturday. Heavy downpours and lightning will be the two biggest threats. A leftover passing shower is possible through the evening hours. Sunday will be dry. Highs will top in the upper-80s.

NEXT WEEK: The heat really ramps up to kickoff early next week. Highs will approach the low-90s. Mid-90s will even be possible by Tuesday afternoon. There will be isolated chances of showers and storms each afternoon.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
