Waking up this morning in the Tri-State temperatures are very mild. It's not a good morning to grab the layers because we're in the mid to upper 50s in most of our communities. Don't let that fool you because big changes are on our door steps.

A passing cold front today will not only flood the region with overcast skies and cooler temperatures, but also bring about our next round of rainfall. A line of rain is expected to pass across the Tri-State starting this morning through 5 p.m. this afternoon, but rainfall amounts look to be on the lower side. After only reaching 63° this morning as a high, temperatures are taking a dive heading into Thursday night/Friday morning.

Attention gardeners, a Frost Advisory has been put into effect for our entire Tri-State from 3 a.m. - 9 a.m. Friday morning. Temperatures will be near or below freezing for most of our communities. It will be even colder to the north, which has put a few of our far north communities under a Freeze Warning. While we'll have plenty of sunshine tomorrow afternoon, it's going to be very difficult for temperatures to reach the 60s.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
