Sunny and Cool Friday; Weekend Rain Chances

Expect a chilly start to our Friday, but we're going to warm up into the low and mid 60s. It's still going to be nice, but much cooler than the last few days.

Brrr... we are feeling the chilly air this morning!

The Tri-State is walking out the door to temperatures in the upper 30s and low 40s! The cool Canadian air mass settling in behind Wednesday's passing cold front will keep the high temperatures well below average through the upcoming weekend.

We're only expected to reach 64° in Evansville this afternoon with a mixture of sun and clouds. We'll see mostly sunny skies in the earlier part of the day and then cloud cover will increase this afternoon. The clouds will help put a cap on those temperatures only reaching the 60s. Thankfully, rain chances won't be moving in until late Saturday.

For you Friday Night Football fans... kickoff temperatures for this evening's games will sit around 58°; so, if you are planning on attending any of those games, you'll need to grab the sweatshirts and blankets. Heading into Saturday morning, the clear skies and cool air will again allow temperatures to fall into the upper 30s and low 40s yet again.

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.
