It was another brutal start to the morning! The Tri-State started out in the high teens and low 20s with clear skies. Thankfully, the winds have stayed calm, which is helping keep wind chill values right around our temperatures. As high pressure remains in control along with a good amount of sunshine, we should have no problem warming up into the mid 40s this afternoon.

Changes will be coming to the region tonight into tomorrow. The first signs will begin early this evening when cloud cover takes over the skies. Increasing clouds will continue overnight with lows dipping down to 27°. Make sure to have the heavy jackets and rain gear handy as you head out tomorrow morning.

We'll be watching out for a low pressure system to move from the Southern Plains to the Tri-State. Right now, models show the system having a difficult time maintaining strength as it gets closer to our neck of the woods. It's looking like the best timeframe for any rain will be tomorrow afternoon extending into the evening hours. Highs will stay right around 45° with partly cloudy skies and scattered shower chances. At this point rain will mainly be limited to our Western Kentucky communities.

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.
