A Mild Small Business Saturday

Saturday looks more pleasant, but we're already tracking yet another cold front.

Posted: Nov 26, 2021 6:17 PM

The combination of clear skies and northerly winds overnight and early this morning allowed temperatures to drop back down into the mid to low 20s area wide; we fell to 23° in Evansville, which marked our coolest start today since this past Tuesday. The cloud cover that rolled back in over the region later in the morning and early afternoon kept temperatures for many of us from reaching the 40° mark. We only reached a high temperature of 37° in the River City earlier on today. As for the remainder of the evening, a southerly wind flow will do its part to keep temperatures from falling much further from where they currently stand; we'll fall of 28° in Evansville early Saturday morning.

Saturday is Small Business Saturday and it should be a perfect day to get out of the house and finish most of that holiday shopping at one (if not many) of our local shops here in the Tri-State. After seeing temperatures in the upper 20s early Saturday morning, temperatures will reach the upper 40s around our lunch hour before cresting in the mid 50s around 3 o’clock in the afternoon - our anticipated high temperature of 54° will be 3° above the average for this time of the year. If you shop until you drop on Saturday afternoon, it should still be a pleasant evening to support one of the those local restaurants across the Ohio Valley. Temperatures around dinner time should range between the mid upper 40s area wide.

We are however, tracking a cold front that is expected the pass through the region late Saturday evening into early Sunday morning; this cold front will leave us with moderately cooler Conditions for the end of the weekend and a northwesterly wind that is expected to drop temperatures back into the 20s that night. After seeing 47° in Evansville on Sunday afternoon we'll fall all the way back down to 26° early Monday morning. Fortunately, it looks as though next week will end up being a significantly warmer one ahead - sure, we may kick off the work week with a high temperature of just 50°, but temperatures by Friday will be peeking near 70° along the Ohio River.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some higher amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
