Drying Out Tonight; Still Muggy


  • Drying out overnight
  • Isolated thunder shower south for Wednesday
  • Hot through the weekend


THIS EVENING & OVERNIGHT: Heavy rain and storms south of I-70 will decrease into the early evening, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said. Areas north will remain dry. It will be warm and muggy with temperatures in the 80s. Because of the amount of moisture in the environment and the nature of these slow moving storms, flash flooding will be a threat. Skies will become mainly clear overnight. Still mild and muggy with lows around 70 degrees.

WEDNESDAY: Another muggy start. Highs near 90. Sunshine and a few clouds. Slight chance for an afternoon downpour, mainly southwest of Dayton. Heat index in the low 90s. Clear and warm at night.

THURSDAY: Hot stretch continues. Lots of sunshine with a very high UV index. Highs climb to 90. Heat index in the low 90s. Looking dry.

FRIDAY: Dry stretch continues. Highs hit 90 again. Could lead to a heat wave for the holiday weekend if we see three or more consecutive 90-degree days. Sunny and dry.
