We won't need the sleeves once again today. Significantly warm temperatures are waking up the Tri-State this morning. Most of our areas are sticking around the mid to upper 60s under partly cloudy skies.
Today's record high temperature of 78° appears as though it will be in jeopardy, though our current forecast projects a peak temperature of just 77° in the River City Tuesday. Added cloud cover and rain chances should suppress any significant surge in temperature.
The cloudy skies and accompanying rainfall will reach the Tri-State ahead of an advancing cold front. The greatest chance for rain will reach our westernmost counties around dinner time on Tuesday. The line of rainfall, which may include some gusty winds and even a few rumbles of thunder, will reach Evansville between 9PM and 10 PM tonight. The Storm Prediction Center has placed are far northern communities under a "1" on the Severe Weather Threat Index. Damaging winds will be the greatest risk of any severe weather. The main line of organized rain will pass east of the Tri-State shortly after midnight Wednesday morning.
High pressure will settle in behind the cold front! Expect more seasonable temperatures and sunshine. It will even be difficult for some of us to reach the 60s Wednesday!
