Definitely not the pretty start to the end of the work week we were all hoping for! It was a damp and cloudy start to our Friday. Several areas woke up to light to moderate shower activity with temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. Even though we are done with the majority of the rainfall, keep the umbrellas handy because of the lingering scattered showers this afternoon.

Highs will top out in the low to mid 70s by the time we get to the early afternoon. We'll take a dive this afternoon and here’s why... the cold front that we've been tracking off to our northwest is sweeping through right now. As is passes off to the east, we’ll see a big change in our wind flow. Expect those southerly winds to turn out of the north and definitely on the strong side. Most of the rain will taper off, but our temperatures will be cooling down into the mid 60s by the late afternoon hours under partly cloudy skies.

Conditions won’t change much tonight other than the drastic dip in temperatures in the later hours. Early morning lows Saturday are expected to fall as low as the upper 40s and lower 50s. The cool weather doesn't stop there though - peak temperatures will only reach the mid 60s as we kick off our holiday weekend! Sunday and Monday look to be more pleasant overall; expect afternoon highs in the 70s and 80s under mostly sunny skies.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
