One last uncomfortable night as warm, muggy air hangs around before a cold front triggers rain and storms and knocks the heat out of the area. This evening temperatures will stay very warm near 80 degrees for the next few hours. We'll see mostly clear skies with temperatures falling to near 70 degrees by daybreak. We should not have any problems with fog such as we've seen the last few mornings. In fact, we could even start with a bit of sunshine before the clouds take over associated with the cold front.
I'm tracking a cold front northwest of the Tri-State that will likely arrive around 2 p.m. and that's when the rain and storms will start for most communities. The front will move through the Ohio Valley tomorrow afternoon and it could cause storms and perhaps strong storms with an isolated chance of severe weather. However, at this time we are not under the risk factor for widespread severe storms.
Starting Thursday, relief is here. We'll see sunny skies with below average afternoon highs near 80 degrees and Friday looks just as nice. The weekend looks a bit warmer with another chance for rain setting up on Sunday.
