It’s going to feel like late July on this Wednesday across Kentuckiana as the toasty weather sticks around and humidity levels begin to creep back up. Temperatures this morning are the upper 60s but with more sunshine around and high pressure giving way to our northeast, we’ll heat up into the low 90s for afternoon highs with the humidity picking back up.
Our dry stretch of weather will come to an end into the late week as a cold front drops into the region. Our best chances for storms will be late Thursday and Thursday night with the rain chances shifting into our Kentucky counties to close the week on Friday.
All of Kentuckiana is under a “Slight Risk” for strong to severe storms Thursday with damaging winds and heavy rain being the primary threats. Temperatures will back off a bit once the rain arrives and the downward trend should continue as we are set-up for a fantastic final weekend of July here in Kentuckiana. Behind the front, another area of high pressure will usher in milder and less humid for Saturday and Sunday. Afternoon highs will only be in the low and mid-80s and with the comfortable air in place, it should be a wonderful weekend for outdoor activities so make some plans to enjoy it! Have a great Wednesday!
