This morning was on the chilly side, but a tad bit warmer than our Tuesday morning. Most of us stayed in the upper 40s and low 50s. There is however, warmer weather in the forecast. I'm sure if you've been outside already you noticed the windy conditions; that's because of a breezy southerly wind flow has returned to the Tri-State. This will make for a much warmer day overall. A mixture of sunshine and wind gusts clocking in at 30 mph will help drive highs up to 77° today!

Enjoy your time outside, because these days are going to be hard to come by heading into October. With that being said, we're watching out for the next cold front moving in our direction. It’s expect to dive our temperatures back down into the 60s Thursday.

High temperatures that day will likely remain 7° below the norm, leaving us with a peak temperature of just 68°. It'll be a crisp 68° at that; winds will gust from the northwest as high as 20 mph at times, so you'll want to have that jacket handy on Thursday - especially that night. The cool Canadian air mass following on the coattails of that passing cold front will drop temperatures across the Ohio Valley to their lowest point in nearly five months!

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.
