After seeing temperatures linger around the upper 70s and low 80s over the weekend, a passing cold front this morning both supplied the region with some much-needed rainfall and a significant cool down. Following the passage of that cold front, afternoon highs only reached the upper 60s area-wide earlier today; Evansville's peak temperature of 69° marked our coolest afternoon since May 20th and was 7° below the average mark for this time of the year. Believe it or not, even cooler weather is likely on tap for the Tri-State moving forward.
Our scattered cloud cover will stick around tonight and into our Tuesday. While we may see a stray shower Tuesday, the majority of the region will remain dry and breezy with afternoon high temperatures reaching back into the mid 60s before dipping into the mid 40s yet again early Wednesday. A change in wind direction come Wednesday will bring about some decent (albeit short lived) change however, driving the mercury back up to 76° that day just in time for another cold front to swing through the Ohio Valley that evening.
Thursday through Saturday appear as though they'll be cooler yet with afternoon high temperatures in the mid to low 60s and morning lows falling to their lowest points in over four and a half months! In fact, Saturday morning's low of 41° would be our coolest recorded since the morning of May 11th (as long as the forecast holds). Long range model data suggests that we may see another round of rainfall arrive just as we wrap the next weekend. It looks like another cold front will settle in across the Tri-State on Sunday, leading to additional rainfall.
