Despite temperatures remaining below average across the board earlier this afternoon, Friday represented Evansville's warmest day of November thus far - we tipped the scales at just 55° in the River City earlier on; that's 6° below the norm for this time of the year. Our crystal-clear conditions are expected to linger though the remainder of the evening and into the overnight hours, allowing temperatures to again dip below freezing up and down the Ohio Valley. That being said, tomorrow morning's anticipated low of 31° would be our warmest since this past Tuesday. Fortunately, the chilly start to our Saturday don't mean we're in for another cool afternoon as seasonable temperatures are expected to return to the region tomorrow. Following another round of freezing temperatures early Saturday morning, the mercury will jump back into the upper 50s and low 60s throughout the Tri-State; we'll fall just short of reaching 60° in Evansville as current model data suggests we'll only reach 59° tomorrow afternoon.
If you have dinner plans Saturday night, you're in luck as tomorrow evening looks like it will stay quite pleasant - after seeing temperatures around our evening commute near 55°, we'll only fall to 51° by dinnertime before dipping into the mid 40s around 10 o'clock. Better yet, overnight lows early Sunday will stay above the freezing mark for the first time since the previous Tuesday! The end of our weekend and early next week appear as though they'll bring about our nicest weather in some time; after reaching 65° on Sunday under clear skies, we'll hit 70° on Monday afternoon, marking our warmest day in more than two weeks! The latest model data indicates that both our Tuesday and Wednesday will remain just as mild with peak temperatures hovering around the upper 60s and low 70s before rain chances and a passing cold front reach the Tri-State next Thursday.
