Despite our overcast skies and blustery conditions, this afternoon ended up being our warmest since this past Thursday; we hit 48° in Evansville earlier today. The cloud cover will linger into the overnight hours and into our Wednesday ahead - temperatures will fall toward the 30° mark area-wide and remain there until our next chances of precipitation arrive late tomorrow morning. The combination of subfreezing temperatures and added moisture normally brings about chances of snowfall - tomorrow morning and afternoon will be no exception to that rule.

Current model data suggests that the first of the white stuff will reach our westernmost counties between 8AM and 9AM tomorrow morning. From there, it will gradually push eastward reaching Evansville shortly after 12PM; snow will continue to fall in the River City up until 6PM or so, meaning your evening commute could be a slick one, so plan accordingly. The last of the snow will exit east of the Tri-State around 7PM. The latest projections indicate that the majority of us are looking at minor accumulations of 1" or less - some periodic localized heavy snowfall may leave a few communities shoveling up to 1.5" tomorrow evening.

The cloud cover above the Tri-State will exit shortly after the snowfall does tomorrow night - the combination of clear skies, northwesterly winds and a blanket of fresh accumulation will drive temperatures down into the upper teens and low 20s throughout the region! Thursday morning's low of 21° will be Evansville's coolest since this past Saturday when we dipped to 18°. Afternoon highs won't be all that much warmer later that day; we'll only reach highs in the mid 30s along the Ohio River on Thursday. Friday, on the other hand, does look a bit warmer - we'll reach back up to 43° as we wrap up the work week.

Wear Your Mask.
