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!

A plunge of Arctic air could give parts of the Tri-State some snowflakes by daybreak.
