153 PM CDT Tue Sep 9 2014
Skies were partly cloudy overnight as morning low temperatures
settled between 55 and 60 degrees for the most part. During the day,
skies varied from partly sunny in the north to mostly sunny in the
south. Temperatures at 150 pm ranged from the lower 80s in
Evansville to around 90 at Poplar Bluff. Winds were generally
southeast at 5 to 10 mph.
After one more hot day, high pressure will lose its grip on the Quad
State on Wednesday. As the high weakens, it will give way to an
approaching cold front from the northwest. Ahead of the cold front,
the winds will increase as the gradient tightens. Showers and
thunderstorms will increase from northwest to southeast on Wednesday
night and end by lunchtime on Thursday. Heavy rain and strong to
severe thunderstorms cannot be ruled out. By the end of the week,
much cooler and drier air will set up over the Heartland as high
pressure re-takes control. Temperatures over the weekend are
expected to be below normal, with highs mostly in the 70s and lows
in the 50s.
