We are walking out the door to cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 30s across the Tri-State. It's definitely a mild start to the morning, considering our overnight lows should be in the mid 20s. This trend will continue into the afternoon with more sunshine.

While winds may be a bit breezy at times, temperatures will surge across the Ohio Valley this afternoon! We'll see our warmest temperatures in a week as the mercury creeps up into the mid to low 50s area-wide - we'll hit 53° in Evansville (that's 12° above the norm for this time of the year). Changes will start moving in tonight as a cold front passes through.

We'll kick off our Friday with morning lows near 28°. The clear skies anticipated for the end of the work week won't do much to drive temperatures higher - in fact, northerly winds will continue to force a cold arctic air mass in over the Tri-State that afternoon. After only reaching 39° earlier in the day, temperatures will dive into the upper teens and low 20s by the predawn hours Saturday. Evansville's morning low of 21° will mark our coldest recorded temperature of 2021 and the lowest since the morning of December 26th. Stay warm.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
