More hot and dry weather is on the way to Kentuckiana as we close out the week and head into the final weekend of summer. With high pressure building back in to our east, expect mainly sunny skies Friday and into the weekend with afternoon highs in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees. Luckily humidity levels won’t be off the charts so it won’t be too uncomfortable outdoors especially if you can find a shady spot. A cold front will slide into the Ohio Valley late on Sunday, bring the chance for a few much-needed showers to the area into early next week.
As the fall season officially kicks off on Monday with the Autumnal Equinox occurring at 3:50 am, hopefully we’ll be dodging a few rain drops to kick off the week. While widespread rain isn’t expected, obviously any rain at all will be very beneficial to those that are lucky enough to get a few showers. We head back to the dry weather into the mid-week with temperatures slightly cooler into the mid-80s for afternoon highs, but still several degrees above average for late September.
TONIGHT: A few clouds and pleasant. High: 68. Wind: SE 5 mph.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny and hot. High: 90. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
SATURDAY: More sunshine, hot and dry. High: 91. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
