Rain Chances and Our Cooldown Continues

We're tracking additional rain chances and more cool weather for the Tri-State.

Posted: Apr 13, 2021 5:45 PM

Following the passage of some scattered rainfall earlier this morning this afternoon turned out to be quite pleasant, albeit cooler overall. After peaking at 73° on Monday afternoon in Evansville, the River City reached just 68° earlier today - obviously a drop of just 5° isn't anything significant from day to day, but that difference signals the arrival of a cooling trend expected to last into the weekend ahead. As for the remainder of our Tuesday, expect our mainly cloudy skies to linger into the evening and overnight hours as temperatures gradually dwindle into the upper 40s for many of us.

It looks as though another round of scattered rainfall is expected to settle back in over the region during the predawn hours Wednesday. Those showers will primarily affect the areas south of the Ohio up until the late morning. The last of the precipitation will exit east of the Tri-State by our lunch hour just before the skies begin to clear above the Ohio Valley - our Wednesday forecast sounds eerily similar to Tuesday's. Despite seeing the rainfall exit and the skies gradually clear, temperatures will continue to trend cooler; we'll only reach an afternoon high of 64° in Evansville that day.

Thursday looks cooler yet - after only peaking at 62° Thursday afternoon, an ample supply of sunshine paired with a weaker northwesterly wind flow as compared to past days, will allow the mercury to jump one whole degree come Friday afternoon; the current forecast high temperatures for Friday is 63° under partly cloudy skies. Saturday on the other hand, looks like it'll be our coolest day in some time. Another round of scattered rainfall accompanied by overcast skies and a northeasterly wind flow will only allow the mercury to reach the upper 50s for many of us. If the current forecast of 59° holds for Evansville, it will mark our coolest day in over two weeks!

It's a seasonable and dry start to Friday, but the heat is going to turn up this afternoon. Partly sunny skies will stick around with highs in the mid to upper 80s. The humidity may take the way it feels up a notch. Those southerly winds will help push in that moisture making it feel more like the low 90s. An isolated shower can't be ruled out, but any rainfall won't ruin our plans.
