While we'll see a dry start to the day, a warm front is lifting through the Ohio Valley this afternoon. This natural lift in the atmosphere can help produce a few isolated showers and thunderstorms. Timing wise, this chance begins around 12 p.m. and continues until 8 p.m. Many of you will stay completely dry again today as this is a 30 percent chance of rain. And you better believe the heat and humidity will impact your afternoon comfort. Highs are expected around 90 degrees but it will feel more like 92-94 degrees once you factor in the humidity.
The chance for rain actually increases for tomorrow afternoon and early Thursday. A weak cold front slides over us late Wednesday triggering the wet weather. Scattered showers and storms are possible late Wednesday afternoon with highs in the low 90s. Scattered showers and storms continue overnight and eventually fade as we head into the Thursday morning drive. This cold front opens the door to better weather heading into the weekend.
Thursday will be more seasonal with highs in the mid 80s and humidity levels drop! Add mostly sunny skies to the lower humidity and it sounds like a nice day in the Tri-State.
Friday looks seasonal with highs in the mid-80s and the same goes for the weekend. There’s a slight chance for an isolated pop-up shower Saturday. But, the early look at the weekend generally looks dry.
