A Damp Mother's Day Weekend

Our Pleasant Friday afternoon will give way to damp weather ahead of our Mother's Day Weekend.

Posted: May 7, 2021 3:42 PM

Our Friday has been no less than picturesque thus far, but we may see a few scattered showers pass through the region over the coming hours. Another passing cold front may generate a cluster of scattered rainfall though 10PM or so - while the majority of the rain will affect our communities east of Evansville, you may still want to check that radar (there just so happens to be a useful one on the Storm Team 44 App) before heading out for any of those Friday evening plans. Our winds will shift northward late this evening, helping to drive temperatures back down into the mid 40s early Saturday.

Cloud cover settling in over the Tri-State overnight will likely linger throughout our Saturday and make for a particularly gloomy and grey start to the weekend. While it appears as though the majority of the day will be a dry one, we're also expected to see chances of scattered rainfall returning late Saturday afternoon or early that evening. The combination of the overcast skies and added moisture will help keep peak temperatures around 15° shy of the May 8th norm; we'll only reach 60° in Evansville tomorrow.

I hope your Mother's Day plans don't include many outdoor activities - Saturday evening's scattered rainfall will give way to heavy rain overnight and into early Sunday morning. Mother's Day Brunch might be a bit of a wash out. Worse yet, shower and thunderstorm activity is expected to intensify though the afternoon and early evening. In fact, the Storm Prediction Center has placed the majority of the Tri-State under a threat for Severe Weather for that period. The latest model data suggests that between the hours of 12PM and 6PM on Sunday, showers and storms capable of producing string winds and hail will affect the Tri-State.

The bitterly cold start to our Wednesday will inevitably lead to a cooler-than-average afternoon across the Tri-State. We're currently expecting an afternoon high of 26° in Evansville on Wednesday afternoon (that’s 17° below average for this time of the year). Temperatures will once again dive back down towards the teens for many of us overnight and into early Thursday. As for right now Thursday morning looks as though will be slightly warmer, but only just - believes model data indicates that we will see a morning low temperature of 14° under partly cloudy skies in Evansville tomorrow morning.
