It’s going to be another hot one, folks!

Even though we are heating up to summer-like conditions, this morning was nice and pleasant. Most of us were in the low 60s across the Tri-State under partly cloudy skies. Winds were on the calm side, but the temperatures kept us feeling quite comfortable.

As you may have already felt it, it’s going to be feeling like July this afternoon. Very similar to the weekend, highs are expected to reach the upper 80s and lower 90s. An abundant amount of sunshine paired with winds out of the southwest will be responsible for the soaring temperatures. Not only are the winds helping add some relief to the atmosphere, but dew points have dropped since this morning which is making it feel a bit more comfy. However, the UV Index is going to be on the high side through the mid-section of the day. It's a good idea to keep that sunscreen and water handy. If you were outside at any point over the weekend you know it can get steamy real quick.

Tonight, dry skies will persist with temperatures slowly dropping into the upper 70s. By the time you’re waking up Tuesday morning, we’ll be in the mid 60s under partly cloudy skies. While tomorrow looks to stay primarily dry, it will begin a four day stretch of possible rain chances.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
