Bask in that December Warmth

These mild temperatures won't last forever.

Posted: Dec 2, 2021 6:13 PM

While today’s afternoon high temperature of 68° fell 9° short of matching a record high temperature for this date, it ended up being 18° above the average for this time of the year. Our mild weather is expected to stick around this evening as well as temperatures gradually dwindle from 53° around dinner time down to 49° at 10 o’clock. A weak southeasterly wind will continue to keep temperatures tepid overnight; we’ll only fall as low as 42° in Evansville early Friday morning, setting the stage for will be in another unseasonably warm day across the Tri-State.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another abnormally mild day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature Near 68° on Friday. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing low pressure system and accompanying cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning. This passing system will usher our unseasonably warm weather east of the Tri-State and allow cooler, dryer air to flow in from the northwest. As a result, temperatures will peak in the mid 50s from Saturday afternoon.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some highe 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.
