Mild Thursday Followed by Another Arctic Blast

temperatures may surge for our Thursday ahead, but another cold front and colder air to follow will make winter's presence felt.

Posted: Jan 20, 2021 6:40 PM

Afternoon highs reached just the upper 30s and low 40s earlier this afternoon, down nearly 10° in some spots from yesterday - fortunately, temperatures aren't expected to crater overnight. Increasing cloud cover and a southerly wind flow will only allow the mercury to dip into the mid 30s for much of the Tri-State early Thursday morning; that being said, there's a possibility that some of our Kentuckian communities could see scattered rainfall late this evening and overnight.

Thursday looks more pleasant overall. While winds may be a bit breezy at times, temperatures will surge across the Ohio Valley tomorrow 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). That evening however, a passing cold front will remind us all that it is still very much winter.

We'll kick off our Friday with morning lows near 27° (a nearly 30° swing from the previous afternoon). 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.

Wear Your Mask.
