Rain moving out, heat to return

Temperatures will push into the 90's Sunday with heat indices reaching triple digits.

The rain has finally pushed out of the region after seeing widespread showers and storms this morning and early afternoon. Preliminary rainfall totals over the past 24 hours show our eastern counties receiving the most rain. No flood watches or warnings are active at this time, but be wary of possible ponding water.

Conditions will remain favorable for the evening if you're heading out to Beers Across the Wabash. Temperatures will push the 80 degree mark, with cloudy conditions. The only negative would be humidity. The added moisture on the ground from today's rain will continue to drive up the humidity through the evening and tonight.

The passing of these storms has bought a shift in the winds. Southerly winds will continue to bring in warmer, more moist air from the south. Clouds will gradually clear overnight, allowing for mostly sunny skies tomorrow. The combination of the humid air and lack of clouds will allow for plentiful daytime heating throughout the day.

This in turn, will push temperatures back into the 90's for Sunday. Heat advisories have already been issued in several regions spanning throughout Oklahoma into Illinois.

Tomorrow, temperatures will max out in the lower 90's across the region before adding the heat index. With heat indices, I expect to see "feels like" temps push into the triple digits.

The hot and humid continues will stick around through the start of the workweek, before a cold front looks to move in Tuesday night into Wednesday.
