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.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
