We started out on the chilly side this morning, but still well above seasonable temperatures for this time of year. Even though heavy cloud cover will persist through the day - Evansville will reach 57° for an afternoon high. Today should stay mainly calm and quiet, but we'll be introducing more active weather in the overnight hours.

We're closely watching a complex of low pressure currently situated over the Great Plains that looks as though it will supply strong shower and thunderstorm activity early Wednesday morning into the afternoon hours. Our first chances of rainfall could reach the Tri-State as early as Midnight. The heaviest rain bands will likely become more widespread between 3:00 - 6:00 a.m.; with this system we can expect heavy rainfall, gusty winds, lightning, and rumbles of thunder. Unfortunately, it won't be out of here by late morning. 

You're going to want to stay Weather Aware for the entire day. A line of storms moving through the Tri-State tomorrow afternoon has the potential of producing severe weather. The Storm Prediction Center of America has placed the entire viewing area under a "1" on the Severe Weather Threat Index. Right now, the biggest threat is gusty winds, but an isolated tornado can't be ruled out. 

Thankfully, we'll dry out by tomorrow night and say hello to pleasant weather for Thanksgiving!
