A Toasty Tuesday & a Stormy Wednesday

After our warmest day in months, storm chances return to the Tri-State.

Posted: Apr 5, 2021 6:22 PM

It was nothing short of a perfect afternoon across the Tri-State. Afternoon highs soared to their highest point in more than a week and a breezy southerly wind kept things from feeling "too warm" for those of you who that prefer a cooler day. We'll continue to see pleasant conditions though the remainder of the evening - if you are headed out for a bite to eat or some post-Easter grocery shopping this evening, temperatures will range between the low 60s and low 70s.

Overnight low temperatures are only expected to dip into the mid to low 50s before the mercury rebounds late tomorrow morning and heads for territory not seen around these parts for quite some time. A breezy southerly wind flow and a good amount of sunshine tomorrow will allow temperatures to peak into the low 80s across the Tri-State; Evansville's anticipated low of 81° will be our warmest in five and a half months! The last time we saw temperatures this warm was on the afternoon of October 23rd when we peaked at 86° in the River City.

While Wednesday looks as though it will be another mild day throughout the Ohio Valley, a cold front approaching for the Great Plains is expected to produce scattered showers and thunderstorms that afternoon and evening. As of right now, some of those thunderstorms may even be strong or Severe in nature - as a result, the Storm Prediction Center has placed portions of the Tri-State under a Threat for Severe Weather. We'll continue to keep a close eye on Wednesday.

Following the passage of some scattered rainfall earlier this morning this afternoon turned out to be quite pleasant, albeit cooler overall. After peaking at 73° on Monday afternoon in Evansville, the River City reached just 68° earlier today - obviously a drop of just 5° isn't anything significant from day to day, but that difference signals the arrival of a cooling trend expected to last into the weekend ahead. As for the remainder of our Tuesday, expect our mainly cloudy skies to linger into the evening and overnight hours as temperatures gradually dwindle into the upper 40s for many of us.
