We're starting off this Tuesday morning with a big range of temperatures across the Tri-State, thanks to a passing low pressure system. Temperatures dipped down to 32° this morning in Evansville, with mostly cloudy conditions. Clearing skies by the afternoon will allow high temperatures to reach 48°. Wednesday looks as though it'll be mostly sunny with high temperatures again in the high 40s area-wide - it's Thursday that we'll need to watch closely.

Temperatures Thursday afternoon will surge across the Tri-State; we'll reach 52° in Evansville (coming within just 2° of matching the year's peak temperatures thus far), but a cold front that night will allow a blast of Arctic air to reach into the Ohio Valley and drive the mercury back down in the mid to upper 20s by early Friday.

We'll wrap up the work week on a bit of a cool note; after seeing temperatures reach the upper 30s that day, overnight lows will drop into the upper teens and low 20s by early Saturday. If we fall to our current forecast low of 21°, it will mark our coldest temperatures recorded in Evansville since Christmas morning!

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
