We're starting off with mild and cloudy conditions this Monday morning. It's a big difference from last week; we're now stepping out the door to 60s, which is more seasonable for this time of year. Rain should stay away until the afternoon, but clouds will be covering the Tri-State for most of the day.

All eyes are on a low pressure system sitting off to our west that has the potential of bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms to the area. Right now we have a warm front sitting over us, with rainfall to the north and west. The showers to the west are expected to move into the Tri-State around 2 PM. There is a good chance most of the rain will stay in the northern half of the Tri-State, keeping some of our southern communities dry. Despite some added rainfall, highs will still top out in the upper 70s.

Spotty showers and storm chances will stick with us tonight into tomorrow morning. Even though the chances are on the lighter side it's still a good idea to keep the rain gear handy. Temperatures will be on the comfortable side as lows only dip into the low 60s.

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.
