Hottest weather in 5 years possible tomorrow

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

*Lows tonight near 80°
*Hottest weather in 5 years on Friday
*Storm chances Friday, early next week


High clouds from earlier storms to our north limited heating this morning, but we’re now cranking up the temperature as those clouds clear. Expect highs this afternoon to be in the mid 90s with heat index values near or even just above 100°. This evening looks dry with a partly cloudy sky and lows only bottoming out around 80°. That’s very warm! The heat is back with a vengeance on Friday as we crank the mercury all the way up to 98°, pushing heat index values as high as 108°. That’ll be the hottest we’ve seen since 2012. This combination of heat and humidity has triggered a Heat Advisory for most of WAVE Country for both Friday and Saturday. Make sure you take plenty of breaks and drink lots of water during this time. Scattered storms will fire up Friday afternoon, providing some much-needed relief for some folks, especially those along and north of the Ohio River. A couple of these storms could have gusty winds. Saturday’s storm chance is far lower but the heat will still be cranked up into the mid 90s. Eventually by Sunday a front sags into the region and provides increasing storm chances for the second half of the weekend. Those storms and the front will help us cool into the 80s next week, with another dry stretch around mid next week after a few additional storms in Kentucky on Monday. There’s light at the end of the tunnel for our heat wave!

All the small downpours we had in WAVE Country have subsided tonight and now we're left with a few clouds overhead. Storms developing over Central Illinois are now dissipating, lending confidence to a dry forecast overnight. Friday morning will start dry for nearly all of us as well, save for an isolated shower or two that may try to get going early. Otherwise, we'll stay dry through the afternoon and then begin to watch for approaching storms around and after sunset as a front sags in from the west. These storms will be with us late Friday night and early Saturday morning. The leftover cloud cover from the overnight storms and any remaining rain showers we may have around by midday Saturday may keep further storm development down by Saturday afternoon and evening. By and large it looks like the best rain chance of the weekend is early Saturday, followed by a scattered storm chance Saturday afternoon and evening. Sunday is looking dry as well as Monday, helping us achieve 90 degrees once again after a Friday and Saturday spent in the 80s. Scattered storms during the heating of the day look like a good bet for Independence Day with highs shy of 90.
