The bottom is about to drop out. From 82° yesterday to 33° overnight; a near 50° swing in temperatures all because of one cold front. That's some front; that morning low of 33° will be the coldest temperature measured in the River City since the morning of April 16th (6 months ago). As a result, the National Weather Service has placed the entirety of the Tri-State under either a Frost Advisory or Freeze Warning overnight and early Friday. Our Frost Advisory in Evansville kicks off at 3AM and will last up until 9 AM; if you have any plants that need to be brought indoors or covered, this is your warning.
Despite our ample supply of sunshine, Friday looks as though it will remain cool - tomorrow's high of 61° will mark our coolest afternoon in nearly 2 weeks. After dipping back into the mid 30s early Saturday morning, a strong southerly wind flow will help boost temperatures back into the mid to upper 60s on Saturday. We are however, tracking yet another cold front expected to stall across the region beginning Sunday. Rainfall will accompany the system and likely linger into the beginning of the work week.
After only reaching a rain-cooled 53° on Monday (our coolest afternoon since April 17th), a core of high pressure stalling over the eastern seaboard will help drive temperatures here at home gradually higher during the ensuing 72 hours. In fact, it's possible that some of us may even see the 80s again by next Wednesday and Thursday! That being said, model data is indicating that a third cold front may impact the Tri-State by next Friday; that blast of cold air could leave us with temperatures as low as the upper 20s area-wide.
It's that time of the year, embrace the temperature roller coaster.
