Flash Flood Watch

14 First Alert 8/12

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for the west-southwest half of the Tri-State until 9PM. Isolated, slow-moving showers and thunderstorms may produce locally heavy rainfall this afternoon and evening that could quickly lead to localized flooding problems, especially in low-lying and poorly drained areas.

Temperatures started out in the low 70s this morning but will climb into the mid 80s this afternoon despite mostly cloudy skies.

Our rain chances decrease some overnight, but a stray shower or thunderstorm is still possible. Temperatures will fall back into the upper 60s to low 70s under mostly cloudy skies.

Thursday and Friday will be very similar to today. Both days will be at least partly cloudy with a few scattered showers and thunderstorms possible and high temperatures in the mid 80s. The rain chances taper back off each night with low temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s.

This weekend will be a little warmer and a little drier, but there is still an isolated rain chance both days. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s under a mix of sun and clouds.

A weak cold front will move through Sunday evening, which will usher in cooler and drier weather for next week.
