We're starting off our Friday with warm temperatures and fairly dry conditions. Evansville only dipped down to the mid 60s overnight and that was the case for the rest of the Tri-State. You may notice cloud cover thickening through the morning, with some pop up showers and storms.
We've got our eyes on an inbound cold front pushing southeastward from the Great Plains. It's expected to swing through the Tri-State this afternoon and bring about, not only a significant cool down, but also our next round of shower and thunderstorm activity. Ahead of it, will be those pop up showers and storms we've been tracking this morning. Temperatures are still expected to top out in the mid to upper 70s today.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed the Tri-State under a "1" under the Severe Weather Threat Index. The greatest risk of strong storm activity will be between 2:00 to 7:00 p.m.; which means there could be a possibility of those thunderstorms affecting our Friday Night Football or atleast the start of those games.
The cold front should clear the Tri-State later tonight and that will give access to those chilly temperatures. Overnight lows will be in the mid 40s with very windy conditions. It could very well feel like the upper thirties as you start your Saturday morning. While we will stay dry, it's going to be very difficult for us to reach the 60s tomorrow afternoon.
