Expect a mild start to our Thursday morning as we stay in a warming trend. Temperatures are kicking off in the 40s and 50s with foggy conditions. Give yourself some extra time heading out on the roadways. While you may need a light jacket this morning, you won't need it for long. We saw a cold front move through overnight, but it's not going to knock down temperatures too much. Today's high temperature is expected to reach 84° under partly sunny skies. Clouds will gradually increase throughout the late afternoon hours.

Above-average temperatures and dry conditions will continue through tomorrow with an uptick in cloud cover. We continue tracking Hurricane Delta as it continues churning in the Gulf of Mexico. The Category 2 storm is going to remain over water for the next 24 to 36 hours. Right now, the latest models are showing it making landfall over Louisiana, Friday afternoon.

Model data suggests the leftovers of Delta moving northward and impacting parts of the area this weekend. Right now, the Tri-State is projected to get as much as 1.5-2" of rain by Sunday night. With Delta's quick movement, it is likely the storm will move through fast and the amount of rainfall could continue to decrease heading into the weekend.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
