A Gloomy, Gray Friday Ahead

Some sprinkles Friday evening will give way to more rain this weekend.

Posted: Oct 21, 2021 6:27 PM

Our breezy and cooler, albeit pleasant, Thursday will give way to more cloud cover as we head into our Thursday evening, setting the stage for gloomier and potentially rainier weather ahead. After seeing an afternoon high of 67° in the River City earlier today (9° cooler than Wednesday's), the mercury will head for 58° by dinnertime. Increasing cloud cover during the ensuing hours however, will keep temperatures both this evening and overnight from fluctuating too much - we'll only see temperatures between 7PM and 6AM fall 8° or so; we'll kick off our Friday morning with a low near 50°. One can expect overcast skies with intermittent peeks of sunshine to linger for much of the day - the communities north and east of Evansville may also see some isolated sprinkles as well between the hours of 1PM and 6PM.

You are in luck however, if you're planning on attending one of those high school football games on Friday night. The cloud cover and sporadic showers are expected to subside for the most part by the time those games are kicking off Friday evening - kickoff temperatures should sit right around 60° under partly cloudy skies tomorrow night. While Friday evening looks as though it will remain dry, the same cannot be said for our weekend ahead. We'll wake up to dry weather Saturday morning, but the latest model data suggests that parts of the Tri-State could see a resurgence of scattered rainfall as early as 10AM later that morning. Scattered rainfall is expected to linger through the reminder of the weekend and even into next Monday. If the current forecast holds, some parts of the Tri-State could see more than 0.75" of total rainfall between now and the beginning of the next work week.

Winds will gust as high 35 MPH through the afternoon. The stronger southerly winds will assist in milder afternoon highs. Temperatures will max in the upper-50s and low-60s with partly cloudy skies. Rain will be arriving by 3AM Thanksgiving morning.
