The remnants of Barry should make our weather a bit wet and unsettled as this system moves through over the next couple of days. With plenty of tropical moisture still remaining with the remnant low, even days after landfall, some heavier downpours will be possible from time to time. We could see some localized flooding issues in the areas that receive the most rain with generally 1”-2” expected out of this system with a few spots seeing higher amounts. It should be a breezy Tuesday with winds gusting over 30 miles per hour at times, and with more clouds and the rain around, it won’t be quite as hot with highs into the mid-80s. The wet weather should continue on Wednesday before tapering off through the day on Thursday.
The big story late this week and into the weekend will be the return of the hot and humid weather to Kentuckiana. Right now, afternoon highs should climb into the low and mid-90s and with higher humidity in place, our heat indices should top 100 degrees at times so Heat Advisories may be needed in the coming days. You’ll want to plan accordingly if you have any outdoor plans. Hydrate properly and try to find a cool spot during the hottest part of the day. A few afternoon storms could provide some brief relief, but these look to be isolated at best. With a frontal system dropping in early next week look for a better chance for storms as temperatures begin to back off.
TODAY: Breezy, mostly cloudy with showers and storms. High: 87. Wind: S 10-20 mph.
TONIGHT: Warm and humid, scattered storms. Low: 73. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy with more scattered showers and storms. High: 86. Wind: SW 5-15 mph.
