Bitter Cold and Heavy Rain

Our coldest weather of 2021 gives way to rain chances.

Posted: Jan 22, 2021 10:00 PM

Tonight will be our coldest night of the year thus far; the mercury will drop to its lowest point in Evansville since the morning of December 26th when we dipped to 16°. The River City's low temperature of 20° will however, feel as cold as 13° at times due to a weak north easterly wind flow - wind chill values could fall as low as the single digits at times north of Evansville. Temperatures will gradually climb back into the low 40s area-wide under mainly clear skies; we'll reach 41° in Evansville.

Increasing cloud cover will settle in over the region overnight Saturday into early Sunday morning ahead of our next round of rainfall - scattered rain will affect the Tri-State through Sunday morning and afternoon before we see a brief break from the precipitation early Sunday evening. That is, up until a more organized and heavier round of rain pushes in late Sunday night. This second round of rain will make for a complete washout to kick off the work week on Monday - in fact, between Sunday and Monday alone, some areas along the Ohio could see upwards of 3" of total rainfall.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
