Rain Spoils Your Weekend

Rainfall makes its way back into the Tri-State just in time for the weekend.

Posted: Nov 20, 2020 6:30 PM

Rainfall will make its way back in over the Tri-State this evening and will unfortunately linger for much of the upcoming weekend. The combination of a cold front settling in overnight and a corresponding core of low pressure passing Saturday and into Sunday will make for a particularly damp next 48 hours. The first of our rainfall will begin as isolated showers pushing in from the north this evening as the cold front inches closer to the Ohio Valley.

Temperatures like today's high of 65° will most certainly be a thing of the past once the rainfall rolls in tonight - we'll awake to scattered rainfall and morning lows in the upper 40s and low 50s. The cool, damp air mass settling in across the Tri-State should only allow temperatures to creep as high as the mid 50s for some of us, others may not be so lucky. Our scattered rainfall will continue to affect the region, that is until the aforementioned low reaches in over the Tri-State Sunday morning.

It's likely that our rainfall will intensify into a sustained light to moderate rain during the predawn hours Sunday; conditions will stay that way until the low finally passes east of the region - that may not happen for some spots until noon on Sunday. Once the rain finally comes to an end, totals will vary drastically depending on where you live. While many of our Kentuckian communities will only receive 0.25" to 0.50" of rainfall, areas along the Ohio and north will could see far more. Current projections indicate that between 0.75" and 1.5" of rain will likely come down across Southern Illinois and Indiana.

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.
