Following the passage of some scattered rainfall earlier this morning this afternoon turned out to be quite pleasant, albeit cooler overall. After peaking at 73° on Monday afternoon in Evansville, the River City reached just 68° earlier today - obviously a drop of just 5° isn't anything significant from day to day, but that difference signals the arrival of a cooling trend expected to last into the weekend ahead. As for the remainder of our Tuesday, expect our mainly cloudy skies to linger into the evening and overnight hours as temperatures gradually dwindle into the upper 40s for many of us.
