Mostly dry and warmer week ahead
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - We are off to a chilly start this morning with temperatures in the low to mid 20s. The first half of the day will be mostly sunny and calm, but we will see a few more clouds and the wind will start to pick up from the south during the afternoon as a warm front moves into the Tri-State. Temperatures will top out in the upper 40s to around 50° again today, but that warm front will kickstart a warm-up that will last through the rest of the workweek.
Overnight, we will fall back into the mid to upper 30s under mostly clear skies.
We will climb into the mid 50s Tuesday afternoon. More clouds will move in during the second half of the day Tuesday and continue into Wednesday as a cold front skirts along the northern edge of the Tri-State. I cannot completely rule out an isolated shower Tuesday night or Wednesday, but most of us will stay dry.
Because that cold front will stay to our north, the warming trend will continue, and our temperatures will top out in the mid to upper 50s Wednesday under partly cloudy skies.
Our winds will increase from the southwest on Thursday, bringing us another shot of warm air and pushing our temperatures into the mid 60s Thursday and Friday.
However, a cold front will pass through our region Friday into Saturday. An isolated shower is possible Saturday, but many of us will stay dry. The main impact from that cold front will be the shift in our wind direction. Our high temperatures will drop back into the low to mid 50s this weekend as cooler air takes over from the northwest.
Our best chance of rain in the next seven days arrives nearly a full week from now as a low pressure system and both its warm and cold fronts will move through our region Sunday, bringing us scattered showers and another cooldown to start next week.
