Local forecast

Rain and storms north on Monday

  • Chances exist north of I-69, but for most of us this won’t be anything to worry about.

Increasing rain chances

  • Chance for showers and storms looks a little better later Tuesday, but even better chances Wednesday and Thursday with a cold front.

Hot and humid for now

  • Highs around the 90 degree mark on Monday, but feeling like the mid-90s with the humidity.
  • Another hot and muggy day Tuesday, but behind the cold front Wednesday it starts to feel better. Upper 70s to near 80 by mid-Week.
