What. A. Day. After seeing morning lows dip to their lowest point in over a week, we only reached 78° in Evansville this afternoon - our coolest recorded high temperature since August 30th. This evening looks like it will remain just as comfortable. The mercury will gradually fall toward the 70° just after dinnertime before diving into the upper 50s overnight and early Wednesday. Our midweek should supply not only added warmth, but also more cloud cover as well.
Gulf moisture pushing north from Hurricane Sally may give way to partly sunny skies on Wednesday, but an advancing cold front expected to pass through the Tri-State Thursday morning will act as a buffer or a wall, barring most (if not all) of that tropical moisture from the Tri-State. While some areas along the Gulf Coast may receive up to 2' of rainfall, we'll remain bone dry here in the Ohio Valley through the beginning of next week!
Due to the passing cold front Thursday, another blast of cool, Canadian air will make for what might be the best weekend in recent memory. Thursday's high of 81° will give way to crystal clear skies and peak temperatures near 72° on Friday. If you think that sounds pleasant, you're going to love the rest of the weekend; both Saturday and Sunday will not only stay clear, but temperatures will remain between 4° and 7° below the norm. Expect a high of 73° on Saturday and 76° come Sunday.
Here's to a beautiful weekend ahead.
