Do you want more snow? No? Too bad - the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for the southern half of the Tri-State ahead of the arrival of our next round of snowfall; the watch is slated to begin Wednesday at 12PM. Following another bitterly cold night ahead (Overnight lows near 5° and wind chill values below 0°), the latest model data suggests that snow will reach the Tri-State between 7AM and 8AM Wednesday morning - scattered snow showers are expected to linger on and off throughout the remainder of our Wednesday, though the heaviest of the snow should reach the Ohio Valley Thursday morning and last into the afternoon.
The last of the snowfall should exit east of the Tri-State around dinnertime Thursday. Current projections indicate that the area will receive between 0" and 4" of accumulation - the lesser amounts falling north of Evansville and the more substantial, south of the Ohio; Evansvillians, it looks as though we'll be shoveling another 2" come Thursday evening. Following the departure of the snowfall, temperatures will again take a turn for the worse - our morning low early Friday will dip to 4°. Don't lose hope - believe it or not, there's actually warmer weather on tap for the weekend ahead and next week!
When we reach Saturday afternoon's anticipated high of 32°, it'll mark the first time in 12 days that the River City will see a temperature at or above the freezing mark (the last time we saw 32° was at 4PM on February 8th). From there, we'll climb to 41° Sunday with scattered rainfall, 43° on Monday and come Tuesday afternoon, high temperatures will reach above 50° for the first time since January 21st; we'll peak at 53° that afternoon.
