Well we definitely saw our fair share of flurries and winter weather over the weekend. As we are waking up this morning, some of those lingering conditions are causing some slick roadways. Most of us are around that freezing mark - in the low 30s.

Not all is lost for your MLK holiday, peaks of sun cannot be ruled out for the midday hours. In addition to the periodic sunshine, temperatures will warm to near seasonal norms. Expect a highs to reach the low 40s.

We will be tracking another round of winter weather by tonight. This next wave of moisture will begin as rain for the metro area and communities along the Ohio River early this evening. Through the late-evening hours snowfall will become widespread starting in our northern-most location first. Temperatures will be critical in order to see a transition from rain-to-snow. As of now, locations north and along the I-64 corridor (Princeton, Mt. Carmel, Petersburg) have the greatest chances of seeing accumulating snowfall. Our northern-most communities (Vincennes, Washington, Olney) could see 1" to even 2" of snow, lesser amounts further south. This could cause problems for the Tuesday morning commute.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
