Another Round of Arctic Air Arrives Overnight

A slick morning commute looks possible with temperatures this cold.

Snowfall accumulations of more than 1" have been reported north of Evansville thus far this evening, but areas south of I-64 have had a hard time accumulating snowfall as pavement and surface temperatures remained above the freezing mark. Much of what has reached the surface today melted quickly, but as temperatures fall over the coming hours, it's likely that some areas will begin to see snow stick. The last of the snow should exit east of the region between 8PM and 9PM, leaving the Tri-State with clear skies and bitterly cold temperatures overnight.

Morning lows in the upper teens and low 20s could make for a slick morning commute - any lingering moisture on sidewalks, roadways and blacktop may freeze over overnight and could lead to patches of black ice Thursday morning. It's best to give yourself some extra time during tomorrow morning's ride to work. The sun will be shining on a cooler-than-average afternoon however, we'll hit highs near 35°. It does look as though another frigid night remains ahead for the region - the clear skies early Friday will again lead to morning lows in the low 20s. Fortunately, Friday afternoon looks slightly warmer - we'll hit a high of 41° as we wrap up the work week.

Wear Your Mask.

Tonight it will be much colder with an overnight low of around 22 degrees, with a light north wind. On Tuesday, highs will only be in the middle 30's and then we throw in a chance of flurries overnight. Best chance of flurries will be along and north of I-64.
