Goodbye Ida, Hello Cool Down

temperatures fall as the remnants of Ida further distance themselves from the Tri-State.

Posted: Aug 31, 2021 6:37 PM

As we anticipated, the remnants of Ida remained well to the east the Tri-State, leaving Central Tennessee, Kentucky and Southeastern Indiana with the bulk of that tropical moisture. After what was a particularly damp Tuesday for many of us (Hanson, Kentucky received nearly 5" of rainfall), drier weather has already settled in across the region, giving way to what will be an absolutely gorgeous forecast ahead. As for the remainder of this evening, one can expect temperatures to remain comfortable with a nice northerly breeze under gradually decreasing cloud cover - after dipping into the mid 70s by dinnertime, overnight lows will settle around 65°.

Our Wednesday looks nothing short of beautiful; After kicking off our midweek with a morning low of 65° in the River City, temperatures will jump to 80° by our lunch hour, but only peak at 83° about three hours later. That northerly wind flow will stick around through the day as well, helping to force any lingering humidity out of the Tri-State, leaving us with an absolutely gorgeous Wednesday evening. It'll be a perfect night to fire up the grill or spend a little time outside - the mercury will remain around the mid to upper 70s though dinnertime before diving into the upper 50s early Thursday morning. Yeah, read that again - the upper 50s! Thursday morning's anticipated low of 58° will be Evansville's coolest in 4 weeks! The last time we saw temperatures that cool was during the predawn hours on August 5th.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
