Isolated showers still possible, warmer weather on the way

14 First Alert 10/20

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Today will not be nearly as soggy as yesterday was, but I would still keep your rain gear handy. A few isolated showers will remain possible on and off throughout the day.

Most of us are starting the day in the 50s, and our temperatures won’t change all that dramatically throughout the day since our skies will remain cloudy, but I think we will slowly climb into the mid 60s late this afternoon and evening.

Our rain chances pick back up overnight and into Wednesday morning, mainly in the north-northwestern half of the Tri-State. Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible. Temperatures will hold steady in the 60s overnight as warmer air begins to flow in from the south-southwest.

Although there is a chance of rain on Wednesday, most of that will be before 8 a.m., so the daytime hours will be mainly dry. We may even get a little sunshine late Wednesday afternoon and evening. Warmer air will continue flowing up from the south-southwest throughout the day, sending our high temperatures in the mid 70s Wednesday afternoon.

Thursday will be mostly sunny and warm with high temperatures in the lower 80s! That is nearly 15° warmer than average for this time of year! Some models are hinting at a slight chance of rain east of I-69 Thursday afternoon and evening, but we will most likely stay dry.

Rain and cooler weather return as we head into the weekend. Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms are possible on and off from Friday through early next week. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70s Friday but will only make it into the upper 50s on Saturday and lower 60s Sunday and Monday.
