You can definitely feel the chill in the air this morning, and it's going to get even cooler by the end of the week.
We're walking out the door to some of the coolest temperatures we've seen in quite sometime. Some of our northern communities started in the upper 40s, while Evansville dipped down to 55° under mostly cloudy skies. We're going to gradually clear out the cloud cover throughout the day, with temperatures warming up into the low 80s. High temperatures are expected to top out around 82°.
All eyes are on Hurricane Sally, but the Tri-State won’t be feeling any of those remnants. We are tracking a cold front that is now centralized over the Northern Plains. It’s expected to pass through the Tri-State tomorrow morning. Originally, there were chances of seeing some light showers, but we should stay mostly dry before temperatures take a dive on Friday.
We’ll go from a high of 81° Thursday to 72° on Friday. Not only will the temperatures feel amazing, but it will be filled with beautiful skies before we head into the first day of Fall on Tuesday at 8:32 a.m.
Latest Sally Update: Sally made landfall near Gulf Shores, Alabama as a Category 2 hurricane around 4:45 a.m. CST, Wednesday morning. The slow moving storm had sustained winds of over 105 mph. Within a two hour period, more than two feet of rain had fallen in Pensacola, Florida. As it continues crawling along the Gulf Coast, flooding is expected to worsen into the later part of today. Sally is not expected to affect us here in the Tri-State; it will make a northeast track toward the Carolinas.
