Our skies will stay mainly sunny for the next couple of days, but the heat and humidity will slowly creep back in this weekend, and an unsettled pattern will bring us daily rain chances throughout next week.
Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will remain possible on and off throughout the day on Monday as that front pushes through our region. As the cooler air behind that cold front filters into the Tri-State Tuesday and Wednesday, temperatures will only make it into the upper 70s to near 80°.
We will see a mix of sun and clouds Sunday with high temperatures in the low 90s. The humidity will be a little higher Sunday, so the heat index values will likely reach into the upper 90s to low triple digits. We will also see a slightly better chance of pop-up showers and storms Sunday afternoon.
Friday and Saturday will both be mainly sunny with a few scattered clouds. Temperatures will top out around 90° both days but will likely feel like the mid 90s. A stray shower or storm cannot be ruled out either day, mainly Kentucky, but we will most likely stay dry.
Highs will reach the low 90s this afternoon under mostly sunny skies. When you factor in the humidity, it will probably feel like the mid to upper 90s. We are closely monitoring a line of storms that will move through our region tonight.
Sunny and warmer today! After starting the day in the low to mid 60s, we will climb into the upper 80s to near 90° this afternoon. Heat index values will be just a couple degrees warmer than the actual temperatures. An Air Quality Alert has also been issued for today.
We are starting the day in the 60s but will climb into the mid to upper 80s this afternoon under ample sunshine. The heat index will hardly even be a factor today due to the low humidity, which is very rare this time of year!
We will see a mix of sun and clouds today. Much like the past few days, isolated showers and storms will also pop up this afternoon. Our temperatures will top out in the low to mid 90s this afternoon, but when you factor in the humidity, it may feel like the triple digits!
Friday and Independence Day will both be mostly sunny and hot with high temperatures in the low 90s and heat index values in the mid to upper 90s. A stray, pop-up shower cannot be completely ruled out in the afternoon and evening hours, but we will most likely stay dry both days.
Most of the Tri-State remains under a Flash Flood Watch until 7 a.m. Wednesday. Many locations received 2 or more inches of rain from last night through this afternoon, and scattered showers and thunderstorms will remain possible through this evening.
We are on alert for possible flooding tomorrow. Some locations picked up five inches of rain over the weekend, and most of the Tri-State will likely get another 1 to 2 inches tonight through Wednesday with the heaviest rainfall expected Tuesday.
Monday will be mostly cloudy, but there may be a few peeks of sunshine. Temperatures will top out in the mid 80s. Monday morning will most likely be dry, but rain chances start to creep back in around midday, and scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely Monday evening.
Our rain chances have increased for Sunday. If the current model trend holds, numerous showers and a few thunderstorms will move from southwest to northeast through the Tri-State from around 8 a.m. until around 6 p.m.
Warmer air from the west-southwest will start to filter into the Tri-State on Friday, helping our temperatures climb into the low 90s. Friday will be mainly sunny with a few scattered clouds, and an isolated shower or thunderstorm may pop up in the afternoon.
We will see a mix of sun and clouds Tuesday with high temperatures in the mid 80s. As has been the pattern for several days now, a few isolated showers and thunderstorms will probably pop up Tuesday afternoon and evening.
