Fall Arrives, but What About Beta?

The Fall season officially kicks off Tuesday morning!

Posted: Sep 21, 2020 10:29 PM

After seeing nearly flawless weather over the weekend, our stretch of stunning weather continued into our Monday; while temperatures peaked at their highest point since this past Thursday, today's high of 78° remained below average for this time of year. Clear skies will give way to added cloud cover both overnight and early tomorrow; as a result, overnight lows will remain a few degrees warmer than Monday morning's - we'll dip to 53° in Evansville early Tuesday.

With the mercury diving into the low 50s, it will certainly feel like fall as the season officially kicks off. The annual Autumnal Equinox will occur Tuesday morning at 8:30 AM as the direct ray of the sun drops south of the equator, signally the start of fall. Scattered cloud cover will help keep temperatures a couple of degrees below the norm again Tuesday; expect partly sunny skies with highs near 77°. Wednesday look quite similar, though one small difference may allow for our first chances of rainfall in a week and a half.

Tropical Strom Beta made landfall along the Texas coastline earlier today and is expected to remain far to our south over the enxt week, but it's possible that some of the tropical mositure ushered northward by the remnants of Beta could affect the Tri-State begining Wednesday evening. Isolated rainfall looks possible that night and again on Thursday, though rain chnaces will remain isolated to scattered at best. Drier weather is expected to retun by Friday.

Wear Your Mask.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
