It's about time! Was anyone else over this rainfall? With it finally exiting southeast of the Tri-State after dinnertime, 36 hour rainfall totals ranged between 2" - 4.5" area-wide. As the system responsible for all of our rainfall pushes toward the Eastern Seaboard overnight, conditions here at home will gradually clear and cool. In Fact, the combination of a blustery northwesterly wind and clear skies early Friday will lead to our coolest start to a morning in two weeks! Expect a temperature near 36° as you step out the door Friday morning.
Following our damp and dreary Thursday, Friday honestly couldn't be any more different - any lingering cloud cover will gradually clear out of the region Friday morning before crystal clear skies return in time for the afternoon. Despite the added sunshine, afternoon highs are only expected to peak near 51° (that's 14° below average for this time of the year). Friday evening looks equally cool and clear for those of you able to make it out to any of tomorrow's high school football playoff matchups; it'll be 45° at kickoff.
Halloween on the other hand, looks anything but spooky. If you recall All Hallow's Eve 2019, you may remember temperatures in the 30s, wind chill values in the teens and a lot of unhappy trick-or-treaters. Fortunately, this Saturday looks gorgeous. We'll see high temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s with little to no cloud cover; Evansville will reach 61° that day. A cold front passing through Late Saturday into Sunday will take temperatures and drop them back into the low 50s for Sunday afternoon before the mercury plunges to its lowest point in more than 6 and a half months Sunday night; we'll dip to a bitterly cold 29° on Monday morning.
