SHORT TERM. (Today through Saturday) Issued at 226 AM CDT Thu Oct 1 2020
A cold front continues to move through the Kentucky Pennyrile in the pre-dawn hours. Cloud cover, primarily along the front, will move out of the Pennyrile near sunrise. A broad, upper-level trough will develop in the Midwest, sending temperatures below average for the remainder of the week and weekend. An upper-level shortwave disturbance embedded in the trough will progress from Illinois to Ohio today. While some cloud cover will reach the Evansville Tri-State area, showers should stay to the northeast. Afternoon winds will be breezy, gusting to 20-25 mph. Highs will be on the order of 10 degrees lower, closer to 70. Lows into the upper 30s tonight are possible along the I-64 corridor.
Friday will be dry as high pressure follows behind the shortwave disturbance. With the trough more firmly entrenched, highs will be in the low to mid 60s. Another upper-level shortwave enters the trough on Saturday, this time from the central Plains. Showers could reach Southeast Missouri and Southwestern Illinois by the end of the afternoon. A brief period of southerly flow ahead of this system will increase dew points.
LONG TERM. (Saturday night through Wednesday) Issued at 226 AM CDT Thu Oct 1 2020
The overall pattern, dominant ridge over the west US, trof central and east, will maintain some semblance of its current state, with a gradual transition to more of an active NW flow pattern in time.
An upper level disturbance, and associated weak surface low and front will move across the area Saturday night and Sunday, resulting in a chance of showers. Dry weather is forecast the rest of next week. High pressure will move across the area Monday, followed by mild southerly flow Tuesday, fropa mid week and return high pressure late next week. After below average temperatures Sunday into Monday, readings should return to near or slightly above average the rest of next week.
AVIATION. Issued at 608 AM CDT Thu Oct 1 2020
Some ground fog appears to have developed at KMVN overnight, and is expected to dissipate soon after sunrise. Otherwise, light winds will become breezier, gusting out of the northwest at all sites to around 20 kts this afternoon. Winds will diminish overnight while very slowly shifting clockwise throughout the TAF forecast period. Skies will remain mostly clear with the few clouds that do form around 5,000-7,000 ft.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
