Evansville's morning low temperature of 61° marked our coolest start to a day in nearly a month; we dipped to a chilly 59° on the morning of July 3rd. While many of us north of the Ohio dealt with temperatures in the upper 50s early Monday morning, we all saw an equally pleasant start to the work week - following our cooler-than-average morning, peak temperatures only climbed into the upper 70s and low 80s area-wide; our afternoon high of 82° in Evansville fell 7° short of the day's norm. The remainder of this evening looks just as comfortable as well; temperatures near 77° around dinnertime will fall toward 69° by 10PM before dwindling into the upper 50s for many of us by early Tuesday morning.
We'll get a chance to leave the air conditioners off and crack those windows overnight - morning low temperatures will again fall to the upper 50 and low 60s Tuesday morning; Evansville will kick off our Tuesday with a temperature near 59°! Despite the borderline chilly start to the day, Tuesday's afternoon is expected to be warmer overall than Monday's - after seeing a temp of 80° around our lunch hour, we'll kick up toward 83° in the River City by 3P or 4PM. Even though temperatures are expected to be warmer, our northerly wind flow will continue to keep the weather across the Tri-State quite comfortable Tuesday.
Wednesday will continue that trend - while temperatures will be warmer across the Ohio Valley, the day itself will still be pleasant. Peak temperatures could push north of 85° for many of us that afternoon, but the presence of that aforementioned northerly wind flow will keep thing from getting too muggy or humid during our midweek. The same however, cannot be said for the upcoming weekend. The core of high pressure keeping conditions so clear and comfortable will kick to our east Thursday evening, shifting our winds southward and allowing Gulf heat and humidity to return to the Tri-State. Friday's anticipated high of 88° will feel more like 90° at times with the humidity; Saturday's high of 91° could feel as hot as 95° and Sunday's projected high of 93° may feel more like 100°. Enjoy the cool weather while it lasts.
