We're stuck in repeat. Our Wednesday morning started with cloudy, foggy, and dreary skies across the Tri-State. Temperatures didn't drop much, we only dipped to 48° for a low in Evansville. Make sure to grab the sleeves and the umbrella because you're going to need both today. Temperatures will stay on the cooler side under mostly cloudy skies, but there may be some pops of sunshine through the early afternoon. Highs should top out in the high 50s and low 60s.

Conditions will begin changing late afternoon. We're watching out for a stationary front that is hanging out to our south. This low pressure system along with Hurricane Zeta's northward track will force showers into the Tri-State late afternoon/early evening. From there, it's going to be a soaker’s fest. The rain isn't expected to fully stop until late Thursday evening.

Don't be surprised if some of our areas - especially to the south - receive 3", 4", or even 5" of rainfall! We could be dealing with flooding issues well into Friday morning if these projections hold out. Because of the latest model data, the National Weather Service has placed the Tri-State under an Areal Flood Watch beginning tonight through Thursday morning.

Good news though!!! Heading into Friday, we really make a turn for the better. Expect lots of sunshine and comfortable afternoons through the weekend!

Our snowy, slick start to the day gave way to a gloomy, gray and chilly afternoon throughout the Tri-State. After only reaching temperatures in the mid 30s early in the day, we will see temperatures gradually tumble back down into the upper 20s by 10 o’clock. Despite the gradual clearing conditions overnight (which would normally lead too a much colder morning), the mercury is expected to remain relatively stable into early Tuesday morning. The return of a southerly wind flow overnight will help keep the temperatures milder as we head towards daybreak.
