Rain Exits, Sunshine Returns

Drier, clearer weather finally returns to the Tri-State.

Posted: May 4, 2021 8:14 PM

Any significant threat for Severe has concluded for the Tri-State - while the system in question is generating thunderstorms that may intensify into Severe Thunderstorms over the next few hours, they will remain well to the south of the Tri-State and pose our area no threat. Now, we will however continue to see scattered rainfall linger across the Ohio Valley through the rest of the evening and even into the predawn hours early Wednesday. Don't expect rainfall totals to amount to anything close to what we had late last night and early Tuesday morning - drier weather will return by daybreak Wednesday, setting us up for an absolutely gorgeous midweek ahead.

We'll awaken to mostly clear skies and morning lows near 50°; we'll dip to 51° in Evansville to kick off our Wednesday. That sunshine isn't going anywhere either! Mostly sunny skies will hang on throughout our Wednesday allowing temperatures to climb back into the mid 60s throughout the Tri-State. Why only the mid 60s you ask? Well, the core of low pressure responsible for both our Severe Weather threat and heavy rainfall these last 24 hours will pass to our east overnight - as it passes east of the region, our winds will shift toward the north. Those northerly winds will usher a cooler, drier air mass back in over the Tri-State and despite all of tomorrow's sunshine, afternoon highs will remain nearly 10° below the norm for this time of the year.

It looks as though we'll even kick off our Thursday under mainly clear conditions, but we're already tracking another inbound cold front that is expected to bring about some more changes to our forecast ahead. While that system is still centralized over portions of Montana and Wyoming, it will swing across the Great Plains and pass over the Mississippi River before reaching Central Indiana on its way toward the Carolinas. We'll go from mostly sunny to overcast conditions between Thursday morning and afternoon; the rainfall will follow shortly thereafter, though it's important to note that there is not risk for Severe Weather with this impending round of rainfall. There is some good news here however, drier and clearer weather is expected to return for our Friday.

Autumn officially begins at 2:21 PM today! The fall-like air will be firmly in place thanks to the strong northwest wind flow. Winds will gust as high as 30 MPH. On and off rain chances will continue through the early-afternoon before clearing around 5PM. Highs will struggle to make it out of the low-60s.
