Breaking Records and Breaking Hearts

The abnormally warm temperatures weren't going to last forever.

Posted: Nov 9, 2020 4:24 PM

Another day, another record broken. After reaching 82° on Sunday and eclipsing a record set in 2005 by 3°, we reached back into the upper 70s and low 80s area-wide and once again found ourselves in record breaking territory; today's high of 79° marked November 9th's highest recorded temperature in Evansville, breaking a record set 78 years ago by 1°. Tomorrow's record high temperature of 78° also appears as though it will be in jeopardy, though our current forecast projects a peak temperature of just 77° in the River City Tuesday. Added cloud cover and rain chances should suppress any significant surge in temperature.

The cloudy skies and accompanying rainfall will reach the Tri-State ahead of an advancing cold front. Sprinkles and light showers look like a possibility broth tomorrow morning and afternoon - the greatest chance for rain will reach our westernmost counties around dinner time on Tuesday. The line of rainfall, which may include some gusty winds and even a few rumbles of thunder, will reach Evansville between 9PM and 10 PM tomorrow evening. While the main line of organized rain will pass east of the Tri-State shortly after midnight Wednesday morning, we may see some light lingering rainfall until just before dawn.

Our midweek will likely kick off under primarily cloudy conditions, though the skies above the Tri-State will gradually clear throughout out Veterans Day as temperatures struggle to reach the 60° mark; we'll only hit 58° in the River City. The remainder of the work week will resemble our Wednesday (with the exception of any cloud cover); both Thursday and Friday will be sunny to mostly sunny with highs temperatures in the low 60s and upper 50s.

A plunge of Arctic air could give the Tri-State some snowflakes this weekend.
