This morning's low of 35° marked Evansville's coolest start to a day in what seems like a month - realistically it's just been over a week - the morning low on Election Day was a bitterly cold 26° in the River City. Our cool start was in stark contrast to what preceded it; this morning's low represented a nearly 50° swing in temperature after Sunday's record high of 82°. Unfortunately, there won't be many more days in which we here in the Tri-State bask in 70° or 80° highs - there's a lot of 50° and 60° temperatures in our extended forecast.
A passing cold front overnight is expected to supply the region with an added layer of cloud cover, helping to keep the mercury from falling into the 30s for many of us. However, the passing front and breezy northwesterly wind flowing in behind it will take aim at our afternoon high temperatures Friday; we'll only reach into the upper 40s and low 50s. Evansville will likely see our coolest afternoon since, well, Election Day - Seeing a trend?
Yet another weather system will reach the Tri-State over the weekend ahead. First a passing core of low pressure may produce scattered rainfall at times on Saturday, then its associated cold front will swing through prolonging those rain chances into the late morning hours Sunday. Peak temperature both days will reach into the upper 50s and low 60s under partly sunny skies, though we'll see some gradual decrease in cloud cover come Sunday. Our next work week looks quiet, though seasonably cool; afternoon highs Monday through Friday of next week will range between 54° and 61° under mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.
