Drier weather on the way

14 First Alert 8/14

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - A cluster of showers and storms brought heavy rain and flooding to portions of the Tri-State earlier this morning. That rain has since moved off to our east. A stray shower or storm is still possible, but most of the rain will stay to our east for the rest of the day.

We started the day with temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s. Now, we are climb into the upper 70s to low 80s, and we will top out in the mid 80s this afternoon. The humidity may make it feel more like the upper 80s to low 90s. Our skies will stay partly to mostly cloudy throughout the day.

Our skies will gradually clear overnight as temperatures fall back into the upper 60s.

Saturday will be drier and warmer with temperatures climbing into the upper 80s under a mix of sun and clouds. It will probably feel like the low to mid 90s when you factor in the humidity. A stray shower is possible, mainly during the afternoon, but many of us will stay dry.

A weak cold front will move through our region Sunday, which may kick up a few isolated showers and storms. That front will also usher in mostly sunny, cooler and less humid weather that will stick around through the week.

High temperatures will be in the mid 80s Sunday and Monday but will probably only make it into the lower 80s Tuesday through Thursday. Some folks may not even make it out of the 70s Tuesday and Wednesday!
