Light rainfall made its way across the Tri-State this morning. Not everyone saw the wet conditons because it was mostly scattered. Temperatures were on the warmer side compared to the last couple of days - Evansville only dropped into the mid 40s.

Improving conditions are likely this afternoon. Most of the thick cloud cover will exit the region for the remainder of our Friday. A little bit of sunshine combined with a southeasterly flow will help temperatures get above the 60 degree mark.

Everyone should be in the clear of any evening plans, but conditions are going to be changing overnight. We're tracking two fronts that are marching our way from the West. It is going to be a soaker heading into Saturday. Scattered showers will start around 3 AM and continue through the entire day. Heavy rainfall and possible thunderstorm activity are possible. There are some signs of breaks, but not enough to help us see sunshine. Highs will only reach the upper 50s and lower 60s.

By the time the rain moves out Saturday night we should have picked up anywhere from .5" -1.5" of rainfall in the Tri-State. Thankfully, this weekend won't be a complete washout. Drying skies will carry over into Sunday with plentiful sunshine. Highs are going to be reaching the upper 60s and lower 70s.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
