Ladies, have those ponytail holders ready to go!

As we woke up to temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s this morning, wind speeds were already reaching gusts up to 20 mph. Our winds are only expected to get stronger though the remainder of the day. In fact, it's possible that some of us could even see 40 mph wind gusts this afternoon. Those strong southerly winds combined with an ample supply of sunshine will help drive our temperatures back into the upper 60s and possible low 70s for some of us; we'll hit 68° in Evansville.

The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for our far northern communities from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. today; those include Richland, Lawrence, Daviess, and Knox Counties. The rest of the Tri-State is under a Fire Weather Warning (Red Flag Warning) until 6:00 p.m.; a mixture of windy conditions and low humidity could easily start an unwanted fire. Please stay away from burning anything, flicking cigarettes, starting bonfires, etc.

The breezy conditions will continue through tonight. Lows will dip down to the mid 40s under mostly clear skies. Wind gusts could still be as high as 20 mph. Your Friday afternoon looks calmer with partly cloudy skies. Those conditions will keep highs in the low to mid 60s. As we head into the weekend, we're tracking another low pressure system off to our northwest that could give us our next chance of rainfall and a cooling trend.
