THURSDAY: We are waking up to nice and pleasant conditions. It will remain dry through today, but our highs will reach the low to mid 90s under mostly sunny skies. As the heat and humidity mix this afternoon, it will feel absolutely oppressive. The National Weather Service issued a Heat Advisory for the entire Tri-State from 10AM to 8PM. In fact, the heat index values could reach 105°-110° this afternoon. The air quality is going to continuously go down through today and tomorrow, before we clear most of the western wildfire smoke out of here.

THURSDAY NIGHT: The heat will be put to rest tonight thanks to our next frontal boundary that will bring us shower and thunderstorm chances Thursday night into Friday morning. The Storm Prediction Center has the northern sections of the Tri-State under a "2" on the Threat Index for severe weather Thursday night and the remainder of the Tri-State south of the Ohio River is under a "1". Storm activity could pick up in the northern half of the Tri-State as soon as 7PM.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
