We're waking up to cloudy, but cold conditions this morning. Low temperatures only dipped to the upper 20s and lower 30s. Make sure to bundle up because those wind chill values are in the lower 20s in most communities.

Overcast skies will dominate across the Tri-State this afternoon. Temperatures will struggle, only hitting a high of only 37°. Decreasing clouds tonight will allow temperatures to dive even lower across the Tri-State; we'll fall to 26° in Evansville early Friday morning.

It'll be sunny and breezy with a high of 46° on Friday before rain chances arrive Saturday and disrupt your weekend. Whereas Saturday will be cloudy, cool and rainy, at least our Sunday will be clearer; though temperatures will remain in the mid 40s as we wrap up the weekend ahead. However, the real warm up won't arrive until the winter season officially kicks off. Yeah, you read right. The winter season officially gets underway early Monday morning with the annual Winter Solstice - temperatures that afternoon will climb back into the mid to low 50s areawide.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
