Warmth, Rain and Another Cooldown

The 80s followed by another dose of rainfall will bring about yet our next cooldown.

Posted: Apr 8, 2021 6:23 PM

It's amazing the difference just one cold front can make - from sunshine and our warmest day in nearly 6 months to an overcast, blustery and cool spring afternoon. After reaching 83° yesterday, Evansville failed to peak above the 70° mark for the first time since this past Saturday. While wind gusts near 30 mph made it feel a bit cooler than we'd like overall, it wasn't a terrible day throughout the Tri-State. Today's high of 68° in Evansville earlier this afternoon was still 3° above the norm for this time of the year.

The remainder of this evening will be cool, though our strong southwesterly winds will weaken as we head into the evening and overnight hours - expect a morning low of 53° under partially clear skies early Friday. Those southwesterly winds will again hit the gas tomorrow afternoon, gusting as high as 35 mph at times - paired with the added sunshine we should see late tomorrow morning and early afternoon, temperatures will again soar into the upper 70s and low 80s area-wide. We'll hit 80° even in the River City.

Unfortunately, we're tracking an inbound core of low pressure that will interact with that heat and produce our next round of showers and storms as early as tomorrow afternoon. Current mode data suggests that a broken line of showers and thunderstorms will develop across the Tri-State beginning between 2PM and 3PM. On and off rain chances are expected to linger across the Ohio Valley through the rest of our Friday and even into our Saturday morning. We are not anticipating any threat of Severe Weather from Friday's showers and storms.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
