A big transition in the weather pattern is expected today, but for the morning we are starting off on the calm side. Conditions are currently dry, with partly sunny skies. Temperatures are expected to peak around 52° ahead of a cold front this afternoon.
Right now, model data shows the front reaching the Tri-State around the afternoon commute into the evening. You may need the umbrella, but this isn't going to be a big rainmaker. Scattered showers will persist through the early evening hours. Strong south winds will become west southwest behind the front, but remaining on the breezy side into tomorrow. As the system pushes further east, cooler air will begin to spread across the Tri-State. We can expect dry and cold conditions to settle in after midnight. Most of the Tri-State will be waking up to temperatures in the low 30s tomorrow.
Friday will be looking more like winter. Evansville is expected to only reach 42° tomorrow afternoon. We'll start off dry, but by the late afternoon hours we could be looking at light snow flurries to scatter across the Tri-State. This will be an on and off trend this weekend. Highs only topping out in the mid to upper 30s with light snow showers. Accumulations are only expected to be visible on car tops and elevated grassy surfaces.
