It's another chilly morning on this Friday; morning lows tumbled into the upper 30s and low 40s as we kicked off the last day of the work week. Don't let our cool start fool you though, Friday afternoon will bring about our warmest weather in nearly two weeks!

Our northerly winds that have helped keep temperatures below average for the last week, will finally shift southward Friday. While wind speeds are only expected to top out near 5 mph, all of today's anticipated sunshine paired with a weak southerly wind flow will help drive temperatures into the low 70s area-wide; we'll reach an afternoon high of 71° in Evansville! Conditions will remain quite comfortable as we head into Friday evening and early Saturday. After dipping to 67° around dinnertime, we'll only have dropped into the upper 40s and low 50s by Saturday morning.

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.
