While it was another particularly damp day throughout the region, we can finally take those umbrellas and toss them back into the closets from which they came - drier weather is finally returning to the Tri-State. After some areas dealt with more than 2" of additional precipitation earlier today, this evening will prove to be a dry one; expect mostly cloudy skies early tomorrow with a morning low temperature in the mid to low 60s. As for Tuesday afternoon, well Tuesday afternoon look nothing short of B-E-A-utiful.

Partly sunny skies paired with a breezy northerly wind flow and less humidity will only allow Evansville's temperature to reach 77° on Tuesday; if that holds, it'll mark the coolest afternoon in the River City since June 30th. Wednesday, while sunnier, looks just as pleasant - afternoon highs will again top out in the upper 70s (78° in Evansville). The clear skies overnight Wednesday into early Thursday will even help usher temperatures to their lowest point since mid June. We may dip as low as 57° that night!

If you're like me and are looking forward to these couple of days in the 70s, you may want to stop reading right now; after all, they say ignorance is bliss... Thursday looks as though it'll still be a pleasant afternoon with highs near 82° with plenty of sunshine. The weekend ahead on the other hand, may end up being a little warmer; temperatures are expected to gradually climb higher each ensuing afternoon. From 86° on Friday afternoon to 91° next Monday, early next week look brutal; be sure to make the most of the pleasant weather while it lasts, before you know it heat indices will be back into the triple digits!

Enjoy the gorgeous weather and Wear Your Mask.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
