Brrrrr... it's cold this morning! The Tri-State is walking out the door to low 20s areawide. Fortunately, warmer weather is on tap for the end of the work week - afternoon highs will climb nearly 10° above Thursday's as the combination of southerly winds and sunshine helps drive the mercury back into the mid 40s Friday afternoon.

Saturday on the other hand, doesn't look so pleasant; despite seeing highs again reach the mid 40s, scattered rainfall will make for a gloomier and grayer day overall. The passing core of low pressure and associated cold front responsible for our rain chances Saturday, will have scooted off to our east for Sunday and we'll wrap the weekend ahead on a bit of a high note - we'll climb back up to 46° under mostly sunny skies come Sunday afternoon.

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.
