404 AM CDT SUN OCT 4 2015
The influence of the Southeast U.S. low pressure system, as well
as the cool and moist flow from the Eastern U.S., combined to keep
temperatures below forecast highs on Saturday.
In fact, temperatures struggled to reach in the upper 50s in some
locations across the Quad State region on Saturday.
Evansville Indiana and Paducah Kentucky actually set new climate records
for the coolest high temperature for October 3rd. Evansville had a
high of 55 degrees and Paducah had a high of 56 degrees, breaking
the old record temperatures of 59 and 57 degrees respectively,
both set back in 1980.
Intermittent, very light rain and drizzle, continued to impact the
Quad State region Saturday into early Sunday. This was especially
true east of the Mississippi River. Rainfall amounts were very
light, well less than a tenth of an inch.
A change from the cloudy, cool and damp conditions will start
today into Monday, with a gradual return to drier and warmer
weather with increasing sunshine and clear skies.
High pressure will dominate the region for most of the week with
highs topping out at or near normal through the work week. A cold
front will work in from the west late Thursday into Friday,
bringing a small chance for showers and a few thunderstorms.
