The fall season officially arrives early Monday morning and hopefully you’ll need the umbrella in spots across Kentuckiana as we kick off the week. With a frontal system moving through the Ohio Valley, our chances for a few much-needed showers will increase into Monday morning. Unfortunately, the front will be weakening as it arrives so we aren’t expecting much in the way of rainfall, but obviously we’ll take anything we can get given the very dry conditions across the region over the last month. We should see a push of slightly cooler air as the front moves eastward, so highs will drop back into the low and mid-80s with pleasant morning lows into the upper 50s and low 60s.
Heading into the mid-week, another boundary and wave of energy should slide eastward toward Kentuckiana but will once again be weakening out as it arrives. There may be enough moisture to squeeze out some additional showers late Wednesday and into early Thursday as temperatures remain into the mid-80s for highs. Unfortunately, the ridge of high pressure and heat will build back in by late week and into the weekend so more hot and dry weather is expected by then with highs into the upper 80s and low 90s.
TONIGHT: Clouds increase, a few showers late. Low: 69. Wind: SW 10-15 mph.
MONDAY: Breezy with scattered showers. High: 84. Wind: W 10-15 mph.
TUESDAY: Mostly sunny and pleasant. High: 83. Wind: N 5-10 mph.
