Temperatures again topped out in the upper 40s and low 50s earlier today (right on average for early March) and fortunately, temperatures overnight won't dive quite so low. After seeing morning lows dip into the mid 20s in spots early Tuesday, southerly winds overnight will keep temperatures at or above the freezing mark for most of the Tri-State during the predawn hours Wednesday. In fact, those southerly winds will play in integral role in driving temperatures to thier highest point since this past Sunday.
Wednesday looks nothing short of an absolutely gorgeous day - the combination of sunshine and a calm southwesterly wind will help boost afternoon highs into the mid to low 60s areawide - Evansville's anticipated high of 62° will mark our warmest since Sunday when soaring temperatures accompanied our heavy and prolonged rainfall. Just as temperatures crest Wednesday afternoon, a cold front flowing southward across the Tri-Satte will shift those aforementioned southerly winds back to the north. The northerly wind flow is expected to linger through the beginning of the weekend ahead.
Thursday and Friday's respective high temperatures of 56° and 51° may be a far cry from our midweek peak of 62° in the River City, but it's important to know that neither day will be affected by inclement weather - both days will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy with a weak northeasterly wind flow. Better yet, the weekend ahead looks a bit milder as well. The mercury is expected to trend higher for both Saturday and Sunday, reaching toward 60° for the latter. Current model data suggests the warming trend will continue into next week - by next Wednesday we could be looking at highs in the mid 60s, but then again next Wednesday also represents our next chance for rain.
