A warm, sticky start to Monday

Summer-like temperatures return

The first full week of July has begun with partly cloudy skies and seasonal temperatures headed towards the mid 80s.  With the rising heat, humidity will go up too making it uncomfortable outside.

Our rain chance across the Tri-State is little to none as a low pressure system east of the Ohio Valley continues to move away. Temperatures end up in the mid 80s this afternoon for that summer-like feel.  And this will be the first day we've seen this month that temperatures are actually at "normal" levels.

A true summer forecast for Monday

The overnight hours will stay day with partly to mostly cloudy skies.  It will still be muggy outside but the overnight hours should stay dry.

A cold front is headed toward the Tri-State on Tuesday and this means the chance for showers and storms definitely returns to our forecast.  Tuesday morning will be dry but after lunch, scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop.  A more defined line of showers and storms should pass through the area Tuesday evening, potentially turning severe. As of now, the Storm Prediction Center has us under a "slight risk" of severe weather for Tuesday. High temperatures will range from 80-84°F with southwest winds at 10 to 15 mph.

Showers and thunderstorm chances continue on Tuesday night as this boundary is low to move out of the Ohio Valley.  Precipitation chances are likely to continue on Wednesday as well, so keep that umbrella on standby.  Due to rain and cloud cover, highs on Wednesday will top out in the upper 70s.

At the end of the week, as we gear up for the All-Star festivities, we'll warm up into the mid 80s and dodge a few afternoon showers and storms through the weekend but the good news is that it will not be a washout for all the fun.
