More Rain Now, 70s Later

Another round of rainfall heads for the Tri-State, but drier weather draws closer to the region.

Posted: Aug 13, 2020 11:10 PM

It was another damp day across the Tri-State - While isolated heavy shower and thunderstorm activity kept the heaviest amount quite localized, many of us still saw over an inch of rainfall on Thursday. Friday looks as though it will be similar to our Thursday. Following a dry start to the day, shower and thunderstorm activity will develop beginning after 9AM. Expect another round of widespread rainfall with some of us receiving more than 0.50" of additional precipitation.

After reaching toward 85° on Friday, the mercury will surge back to 87° in Evansville on Saturday. Mostly sunny skies and high humidity may make it feel as hot as 92° at times Saturday afternoon. I'm tracking yet another weather system being driven into the region by a passing cold front that will reach the area on Sunday. While it is indeed expected to supply the region with some light rainfall that day, it will also finally usher in cooler and more comfortable air into the Tri-State.

After only reaching highs near 84° on Sunday, we'll dip to 81° on Monday and fall back into the 70s on Tuesday for the first time in almost two weeks! High temperatures will only reach 78° and 79° on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively. Get excited!

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
