Cool Air Lingers, Rainfall Arrives

I'm Tracking rainfall ready to disrupt those weekend plans.

Posted: Oct 2, 2020 6:23 PM

This morning's low temperature of 43° was our coldest recorded here in the River City since the morning of May 11th; similarly, this afternoon's peak temperature was Evansville's coolest since May 13th - Considering today was our coolest day in over four and a half months, our Friday evening looks as though it will a chilly one. If you're heading to any of those football games this evening, I'll tell you now that you'll want to wear a few layers; kickoff temperatures will be in the mid 50s with a weak northerly wind.

Another night of lows in the 30s and 40s area-wide is expected as we head into our Saturday morning. We'll bottom out at 41° early tomorrow morning leaving a chill in the air lingering into tomorrow afternoon as well. While warmer overall, our Saturday ahead doesn't exactly look like a perfect or picturesque day. Following a partly cloudy start to the day, we'll continue to see increasing cloud cover through the morning and early afternoon before scattered rainfall returns late tomorrow afternoon and early evening.

Those rain chances will continue on into our Sunday as the system responsible for the scattered precipitation passes east of the Tri-State. That won't happen until at least early Sunday evening. After reaching 67° on Saturday before the rain arrives, we're likely only going to peak at 65° come Sunday. Fortunately, more pleasant weather appears as though it is on the horizon for early next week. Monday will remain in the 60s, but we could see the 70s by Tuesday and even a return of 80° heat by next Wednesday.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
