Gorgeous Weather on Tap This Week

High pressure dominates, keeping the skies above the Tri-State clear.

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.

Tuesday looks as though it will be quite similar to our Monday. High pressure will continue to keep our skies clear and southerly winds will drive temperatures a degree or two higher in spots tomorrow afternoon. The same can be said for tomorrow night - temperatures will range from the mid 60s to mid 50s under a clear evening sky. We'll finally start to see some changes to the forecast beginning Wednesday evening; after what's expected to be yet another picturesque day all around (temperatures in the mid 70s with plenty of sunshine), a cold front swinging through Wednesday night will first force more cloud cover in over the region that evening and eventually scattered rain chances late that night. The latest model data suggests that the rain will be relatively sporadic and short-lived, but the added moisture and cloud cover will only allow the temperature to fall to 60° that night.

Scattered cloud cover and a breezy northerly wind flow will take over come Thursday .Temperatures that afternoon will struggle to climb above the low 70s under gradually decreasing cloud cover. Friday looks as though it'll be the coolest day of the week - afternoon highs near 69° will be punctuated by a light west northwesterly wind under partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies. The high school football season continues Friday night and temperatures will finally feel more like they should this time of year; current data suggests we'll see a kick off temperature near the mid 60s under partly cloudy skies before dipping toward the mid 50s by the end of the games that night. If you're planning on attending have the jacket ready to go and make sure you bring enough cash for the hot chocolate.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
