We are set up for a delightful July day across Kentuckiana on this Wednesday thanks to Canadian high pressure to our north driving drier and less humid air into the region. Under mostly sunny skies, conditions should be pretty ideal today with afternoon highs into the mid-80s and low humidity levels. Get outside today and enjoy the sunshine and comfortable air. The nice stretch of weather will hang on for another day Thursday with partly sunny skies and moderate humidity levels as highs reach the upper 80s in most spots. Changes are on the way to close out the week Friday and for the upcoming weekend as our next storm system arrives here in Kentuckiana.
With moisture returning from the Gulf of Mexico and a cold front moving in from the west, scattered storms should pick up as we progress through the day Friday. With highs in the upper 80s and the dynamics in place, some severe weather looks possible as the Storm Prediction Center has much of Kentuckiana in a Slight risk for severe storms (Level 2 of 5) on Friday so this is something to keep an eye on. The occasional rain and storms should continue Friday night and into Saturday so it looks a bit wet for any early weekend plans. With an upper level low lagging behind and spinning over the Great Lakes, our shower chances will linger into early next week. With the clouds and rain around, temperatures will be held in check with highs into the low and mid-80s. Have a great Wednesday!
