72 Hours of Blustery, Rainy and Cold Weather

Another round of big changes are headed for the Tri-State.

Posted: Nov 23, 2021 5:54 PM

All of today’s sunshine helped drive temperatures significantly higher earlier this afternoon. After a day in which we didn’t climb above 35° after 12 PM, the warmer and more pleasant weather was well deserved across the Tri-State today. We officially reached 44° in Evansville earlier this afternoon and while that is nearly 10° warmer than where we were yesterday, today’s high temperature remained 9° below the norm for this time of year. As for the remainder of this evening, a persistent southerly wind will keep temperatures from fluctuating as we head later into the night. After seeing 35° around dinnertime, we’ll dip to just 33° by 10 o’clock - morning low temperatures are only expected to fall a degree or two lower throughout the Tri-State early Wednesday morning.

Wednesday looks as though it will be significantly warmer - a core of high pressure spanning the Southeastern United States and Eastern Seaboard will produce he consistent and strong southerly wind capable of gusting as high as 30 mph times Wednesday. The strong winds and ample supply of sunshine will propel temperatures back into the mid to upper 50s throughout the Ohio Valley; we'll reach an afternoon high temperature in Evansville and 57°, our warmest in a week. It looks as though will see increasing cloud cover tomorrow evening ahead of an advancing cold front that is expected to bring rain chances back to the Tri-State just in time for your Thanksgiving holiday.

Rainfall is expected to reach our westernmost communities as early as 4 or 5 o’clock in the morning on Thursday. The scattered rainfall is expected to continue on and off throughout the morning and early afternoon - the latest model data indicates that the last of the organized rainfall should exit east of the Tri-State between 12 PM and 1 PM that day. Even though the rainfall will be coming to an end, breezy northwesterly winds settling in behind the passing cold front will make for a particularly chilly Thanksgiving night and bitterly cold Black Friday morning. After reaching 49° on Turkey Day, temperatures are expected to plummet into the mid-20s for those of us seeking out those great Black Friday deals early the next morning.

The passage of an overnight cold front will bring another shot of unseasonal cool air. Northwest winds will give way to raw conditions with windchills holding in the 30s through most of the day. Expect highs to top in the upper-40s under clear skies.
