Hot and humid through Saturday, Rain and storms return over the weekend and then a quick cool down.


High-level cirrus clouds fanning into the area, along with smoke from fires out west, are giving the sky a bit of a hazy look this afternoon, but we are otherwise seeing filtered sunshine. Temperatures as of early this afternoon are already well up into the upper 80s, and we will probably continue to warm a few more degrees. Rain and thunderstorms are staying to our north, in association with a stalled frontal boundary near the Ohio Valley.


Expect this weather to continue through the rest of the afternoon with filtered sunshine and hot temperatures. Most of us will be topping out somewhere between 88 and 92 degrees across the area. Heat index values will be in the low to mid 90s.


That hot weather continues through tomorrow and Saturday with highs between the mid 80s and the lower 90s, with heat index values continuing into the low to mid 90s. A southerly breeze will help with cooling you off if you have to be outside, but please be sure to stay hydrated. Rain chances stay on the low to zero side for Friday into the daytime hours of Saturday.


That changes as we head into Saturday evening and overnight, however. There may be a few isolated pop-up storms during the daytime hours on Saturday, but rain and thunderstorms become more widespread Saturday evening/overnight and especially on Sunday as a cold front approaches the area. Some of the rainfall may be heavy at times, and a few storms could have gusty winds. The clouds and rain on Sunday keep us in the upper 70s to lower 80s, and then we are back into the lower 70s behind the front on Monday before a quick rebound back toward the 80s by Tuesday and the middle of next week.
