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.
