Temperatures have remained about 10 degrees cooler so far this afternoon thanks to a deck of clouds that just won’t give up.    This thankfully has keep us away from the 90 degree mark and this should put an end to our 90 degree streak of days.   But dew points are still high across the state so it still feels sticky outside but not as oppressive as Saturday.

A cold front is headed in tonight from the west.  There should be storms just to our west in Illinois later this afternoon and some of these could make it into the southwestern part of the state.  But overall, storms chances still don’t look that great overnight with about a 30% chance through Monday morning.  The latest weather models this afternoon aren’t really picking up much rain out of the cold front in the overnight and early morning hours.  All 3 models pick up basically no rain overnight. But here’s something to keep in mind for Monday afternoon.  The latest weather model runs are trying to pop up some post frontal showers and storms between 1-4 PM, specifically in southeastern Indiana.

This would not be a widespread event but just isolated showers and thunderstorms in the early afternoon hours.  After that, skies turn partly cloudy to mostly sunny and humidity will drop.

Cooler and drier air will be in for a few days before the heat starts to build for next weekend.  Tuesday looks like the coolest day of the week with temperatures just below the 80 degree mark.  Temperatures will be hot for the coming weekend but humidity won’t be a large issue as dew points will remain below the 60 degree mark.
