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.
