Temperatures flirt with the 90 degree mark Tuesday before rain returns


(WOWK) — After several days in the mid 80s, the thermometer is set to hit or top 90 degrees for the first time since last August on Tuesday.

Showers on Tuesday should be limited to the eastern mountain peaks outside of the WOWK viewing area, and the high pressure is expected to build just a little more.

Tuesday’s weather setup with slightly warmer air coming in to our area.

Those factors and a few more hours of sunshine should allow the highs to get up to 90 on many car thermometers, bank thermometers and backyard thermometers. It will be very close to 90 at the official recording stations at the local airports.
