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.

Wear Your Mask.

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.
