After what has been an absolutely gorgeous Tuesday morning and afternoon, scattered rainfall will settle in over the Tri-State and make for a far less enjoyable forecast moving forward. While condonations aren't expected to be a washout by any means, the sporadic rain will likely put a damper on that West Side Nut Club Fall Festival at times over the next couple of days. If you're headed out to Franklin Street this evening, might I suggest you check that radar before you do so - rainfall looks to be quite prevalent around dinnertime before subsiding about an hour or two later. Unfortunately, this won't be the last of our rain chances moving forward.
Isolated rainfall will remain a possibility overnight and early Wednesday morning as temperatures gradually dwindle into the mid to upper 60s; we'll dip to just 67° in Evansville early Wednesday morning. A core of low pressure stalling out over the Mississippi Valley over these next 48 hours or so will continue to pump more Gulf moisture northward into the Tri-State during our Wednesday and Thursday - again, while the rainfall is never expected to be significant, it will certainly disrupt your midweek and Thursday from time to time. Temperatures both days will remain in the upper 70s and rainfall totals by the time the last drop falls Thursday evening could amount to more than an inch in spots.
As the rainfall finally exits the Ohio Valley, clearer and drier conditions will settle back in across the Tri-State and make for a fantastic weekend. We'll wrap up the work week with an afternoon high near 81° on Friday afternoon under some decreasing cloud cover - temperatures by the time those football games kickoff that night will be in the mid to upper 70s. As for our Saturday and Sunday, one can expect mostly sunny skies both days with some summer-like afternoon highs in the mid to low 80s!
