Another Pleasant Day Ahead

A gorgeous Tuesday will give way to a pleasant Wednesday. The nice weather however, won't last forever.

Posted: Jun 22, 2021 6:35 PM

Our Tuesday has been nothing short of b-e-a-utiful. Peak temperatures this afternoon rose only as high as the mid to upper 70s across the Tri-State; Evansville's high of 77° marked our coolest afternoon in nearly three weeks! If you were a fan of this afternoon, you're going to love the evening ahead as well - temperatures around dinnertime will sit right around the 75° mark and gradually dip toward 65° between then and 10PM. Even as our winds shift southward overnight, low temperatures are expected to remain quite cool for this time of the year. We'll wake up to a crisp morning low of 54° in the River City, setting the stage for yet another beautiful day ahead.

Our Wednesday will resemble the Tri-State's Tuesday in many ways: the skies above the region will remain clear, temperatures will remain below average and Gulf humidity will continue to evade the Ohio Valley, but the presence of a southerly wind flow will help drive temperatures 5° to 7° higher for our midweek. Current model data suggests that temperatures will climb back into the mid to low 80s area wide Wednesday afternoon; we'll top out near 82° in Evansville (which is still 6° below the norm for this time of the year). Our breezy southerly winds will only allow temperatures to bounce back down into the low 60s by early Thursday morning, setting the stage for a much warmer day overall.

We'll tip the scales at 90° in Evansville come Thursday, but that added humidity will have finally settled back into the Ohio Valley making that 90° feel more like 92° or 93° at times that afternoon. If the return of the 90s wasn't motivation enough to make the most of the pleasant weather while it lasts, our weekend forecast certainly will send you outdoors. The latest model data is indicating that a cold front pushing south though the Great Lakes and Midwest will stall just north of the Tri-State Friday and Saturday, all the while interacting with our ample supply of heat and humidity - as a result, shower and thunderstorm activity is expected to affect the region through the weekend and even into early next week.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
