When Will the Cooler Weather Arrive?

Cooler weather heads for the Tri-State, but how long will we have to wait before it arrives?

Posted: Sep 8, 2020 9:16 PM

Today marked the hottest day in the River City in two weeks; we haven't recorded temperatures in the 90s since August 25th. It looks like tomorrow could be even hotter. A frontal boundary camped out over Central Illinois and Northern Indiana has many Tri-Staters licking their chops over an impending cool down. Afternoon highs reached just the low 60s for many comminutes in Northern Illinois earlier today, we on the other hand hit 90°. So, will the cooler weather ever arrive and how far will the mercury fall?

Wednesday's forecast looks just as hot at our Tuesday and for some of us, it could be even warmer; we'll hit 91° under sunny skies in Evansville. If there's any silver lining here, it's that humidity levels will remain manageable while we deal with the lingering summer-like heat. Current model data suggests that the front will finally pass south of the Ohio Valley Thursday morning, but the effects of that passing front won't likely be felt until Friday. After reaching 87° on Thursday, we'll top out at a comfortable 83° on Friday afternoon.

83° will be about as cool as our forecast gets, at least for the time being. Another cold front is expected to swing through on Sunday, possibly generating a few showers, but also pushing that cooler air further south. We may fall into the upper 50s early Monday before only reaching the upper 70s that afternoon. Next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will likely bring about more temperatures in the mid to low 80s with periods of scattered rain, but there's some evidence indicating that the following Friday and Saturday could be our coolest days since the end of May! Cross those fingers.

Wear Your Mask.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
