  • Severe storms possible Tuesday and Wednesday

TONIGHT

Dry conditions continue for any 4th of July festivities this evening. Temperatures will be mild in the morning with lows in the 60s and 70s.

THIS WEEK

High pressure settles in near the Gulf of Mexico allowing for our temperatures and humidity to climb. This will allow for an unsettled weather pattern throughout the week. This will also allow daily thunderstorm complexes to develop and slide through the Ohio Valley into our region. Highs will climb to the upper 80s and low 90s with very humid air.

Daily storm complexes are possible for the rest of the week.
