Bitter Cold to Beautiful Weather

Our coolest weather in months gives way to a nice little warmup.

Brrrrr -

Despite our crystal-clear skies, it was anything but a warm autumn day across the Tri-State; in fact, today's high of 50° marked our coolest measured here in Evansville since March 22nd (we hit just 46° that day - that was nearly 8 months ago!) Honestly, tonight won't be much better. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will help drive the mercury back into the mid to upper 20s area-wide; by tomorrow morning we'll have fallen to 27° in the River City, our coolest start to a day since November 2nd.

Fortunately, it does appear as though warmer weather remains on the horizon. Sure, today and tomorrow morning may have you reaching for the winter jacket, but overall, our forecast ahead will be a pleasant one. Winds shifting back to the south will help drive afternoon highs back into the mid 50s Wednesday under clear skies. These winds play an even larger role in our forecast on Thursday and Friday. From wind gusts between 10 mph and 15 mph on Wednesday to wind speeds approaching 35 mph at times come Thursday.

The strong southerly wind flow is expected to linger for some times and will continue to boost temperatures across the Tri-State; we'll tip the scales at 65° on Thursday and Friday's 20 mph wind speeds will drive the mercury even higher, but it's Saturday that will likely go down as the gem of the forecast. By then, those blustery conditions will have subsided, but the warmth will have gone nowhere - Saturday's current projected high is 69° in Evansville, but some of us may even reach 70° that afternoon!

Wear Your Mask.

A plunge of Arctic air could give the Tri-State some snowflakes this weekend.
