Today is the day we'll begin seeing changes in the weather pattern across the Tri-State.

This morning started off with mostly cloudy conditions with temperatures in the low to mid 60s. We are gradually seeing an improvement in our skies, as we'll see a mixture of sun and clouds throughout the day. However, we'll see a gradual shift of low pressure affecting the Tri-State. Heat and humidity will slowly creep its way back into our communities. Expect highs in the mid 80s today with heat indices near 90° at times. Our southern communities may see some showers and storms this afternoon, which means our Friday Night Football Forecast looks to be on the clear side for Indiana schools.

While Saturday looks as though it will be a virtual repeat of our Friday, Sunday we'll dry off with hotter conditions. Temperatures will reach the mid to upper 80s, with heat index values surpassing 90° at times. And that trend isn't going anywhere! August will be returning next Monday and Tuesday. Afternoon highs will peak near 90° those two days, but it may end up feeling as hot as 95° with the added humidity.

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
