Following a particularly damp weekend that left some spots across the Tri-State with nearly 4" of rainfall, Monday (and the start to March) was anything but lion-like. Decreasing cloud cover gave way to sunshine and highs near 48° - yes, a far cry from Sunday's high of 69°, but at least it wasn't raining. The clear dry conditions will stick around overnight and allow temperatures to dip to their lowest point in over a week; we'll fall to 26° in Evansville early Tuesday morning.
Tuesday looks as though it will be slightly warmer - afternoon highs will again reach toward the upper 40s and low 50s areawide; we'll peak at 50° in Evansville under sunny skies. After seeing near freezing temperatures early Wednesday morning, the ample amount of sunshine paired with a west southwesterly wind flow will help drive temperatures back toward 60° throughout the Ohio Valley - we'll hit 59° in the River City. While conditions are expected to be cooler (albeit clear) come Thursday and Friday, the weekend ahead looks as though it will be a mild one.
The sun will continue to shine down upon the Tri-State on Saturday - afternoon highs will reach the mid 50s that afternoon. Sunday looks even warmer; current model data suggests that many of us may find ourselves back in the 60s under clear skies just one week to the day after the complete deluge that was yesterday.
