We may start to see a change in the dry and seasonable weather later today. We started off with beautiful and pleasant conditions once again this morning with lows dipping down into the upper 50s and lower 60s. Evansville dropped down to 61°, before making a jump around 7:30 a.m. into the mid 70s. We will continue to experience sunny and warm conditions across the region for the early part of Thursday, before a low pressure system from the east brings possible isolated thunderstorms to the Tri-State later this afternoon. Highs should top out in the mid to upper 80s. Tonight, lows will dip into the mid 60s with partly cloudy skies.

Right now, we can’t rule out a pop up shower or thunderstorm moving into portions of southwest Indiana and Kentucky between the hours of 3:00 and 9:00 p.m. It looks to be an isolated event for the most part, but there is concern of lightning being a threat from these storms. If anything develops, it is likely the storms will be short-lived. The Tri-State is expected to dry out through the overnight hours; we may see some cloud cover as we wake up Friday morning. The heat will make it’s mark on the region tomorrow. It will be much of a summer-like day with plentiful sunshine and highs topping out around 90°.

As we kick off the weekend, another system from the northwest will progress towards the Tri-State. We should be in the clear for most of Saturday, but there is some uncertainty about the timing of possible showers and thunderstorms moving into the area that afternoon. Storm chances will carry over into Sunday, making for what could be a rainy Father’s Day. Highs will continue to stay above average, with both days reaching the low 90s. While we could see a good amount of rain over the weekend, it will cool conditions off for the start of our next work week. Temperatures could return to below normal by Tuesday. Rain chances are expected to hang on through Wednesday.

Conditions are dry, but chilly. Winds have strengthened out of the north making it feel bitterly cold. As we head into the overnight hours temperatures will fall into the mid 20s. As winds stay gusty out of the north it will make it feel more like the teens Sunday morning under clear skies. The majority of the Tri-State will remain dry come Sunday afternoon. There is a slim chance that some of our communities across the far southern reaches of the Tri-State could see some light snowfall early in the afternoon, but it's looking like it will stay south and east of the Tri-State. We'll climb to a high temperature of 38° with sunny and breezy conditions. Gusts out of the north could reach 25-30 MPH.
