A Damp Tuesday Evening and Chilly Midweek

A passing cold front will leave the Tri-State with scattered rainfall and our coolest temperatures in more than a month.

Posted: Mar 30, 2021 6:18 PM

It was, up until quite recently, a beautiful spring day across the Tri-State - after reaching temperatures in the mid 70s area-wide, scattered shower and thunderstorm activity arriving ahead of an advancing cold front is making for a damper, cooler evening ahead. Blustery northwesterly winds paired with the rainfall will drive temperatures down into the low 40s overnight, though the rainfall will exit prior to Wednesday's sunrise. Expect a cooler midweek overall; lingering cloud cover and the aforementioned northwesterly winds will help keep temperatures from reaching 50° in spots tomorrow. Wind chill values tomorrow afternoon will struggle to climb above the upper 30s and low 40s.

If you think 51° in Evansville sounds cool, just wait until Thursday. While our anticipated morning low of 29° will mark our coolest recorded temperature in over three weeks (as well as trigger a Freeze Warning from 1AM -9AM Thursday), our peak temperature of 43° will mark our coolest afternoon high since February 20th. Colder yet will be Friday morning's low temperature of 26°, our coldest start to the day in nearly a month and a half! Fortunately, the mercury is expected to gradually rise from there.

Good Friday will be sunny and 50°; cooler than average yes, but pleasant nonetheless. Saturday looks warmer yet - we'll hit 63° under partly cloudy skies that day before hopping up to 70° even come Easter Sunday. We'll even kick off the next work week with an afternoon high of 73° next Monday. As long as we can get through this upcoming 48 hour stretch of chilly weather, at least we can enjoy a little warm up late this week.

Our snowy, slick start to the day gave way to a gloomy, gray and chilly afternoon throughout the Tri-State. After only reaching temperatures in the mid 30s early in the day, we will see temperatures gradually tumble back down into the upper 20s by 10 o’clock. Despite the gradual clearing conditions overnight (which would normally lead too a much colder morning), the mercury is expected to remain relatively stable into early Tuesday morning. The return of a southerly wind flow overnight will help keep the temperatures milder as we head towards daybreak.
