Despite the lack of additional snow in the forecast, our morning commute could be a slick one - pairing temperatures as cold as this morning's with slush and snow left on roadways, parking lots and sidewalks, we're looking at a recipe for black ice. Use extra caution when hitting the roads today - make sure to give yourself extra time to make it to your destination.

As we head into the afternoon, it's going to be a beautiful one. However, the added sunshine won't do much for temperatures; highs are only expected to peak in the mid to upper 20s. I wish I had better news, but temperatures will plummet once again tonight. Expect partly cloudy skies with low temperatures in the single digits.

Fortunately, warmer weather will finally begin to return to the Tri-State over the weekend. In fact, it's expected that Evansville will reach 36° tomorrow - that'll be the first time the River City will find itself at or above the freeing mark since February 8th. That's 12 long, cold days without temperatures above 32°.

Sunday looks even warmer - we'll top out at 44° that day, but a passing core of low pressure and associated cold front will supply the Ohio Valley with its next chances of rain. Current projections indicate that the rain will only last into the predawn hours Monday, leaving your morning commute that day dry.
