Light rainfall made its way across the Tri-State this morning. Not everyone saw the wet conditons because it was mostly scattered. Temperatures were on the warmer side compared to the last couple of days - Evansville only dropped into the mid 40s.

Improving conditions are likely this afternoon. Most of the thick cloud cover will exit the region for the remainder of our Friday. A little bit of sunshine combined with a southeasterly flow will help temperatures get above the 60 degree mark.

Everyone should be in the clear of any evening plans, but conditions are going to be changing overnight. We're tracking two fronts that are marching our way from the West. It is going to be a soaker heading into Saturday. Scattered showers will start around 3 AM and continue through the entire day. Heavy rainfall and possible thunderstorm activity are possible. There are some signs of breaks, but not enough to help us see sunshine. Highs will only reach the upper 50s and lower 60s.

By the time the rain moves out Saturday night we should have picked up anywhere from .5" -1.5" of rainfall in the Tri-State. Thankfully, this weekend won't be a complete washout. Drying skies will carry over into Sunday with plentiful sunshine. Highs are going to be reaching the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
