Our morning low temperature of 23° marked our coldest start to a day since February 20th, nine months ago. The bitter cold certainly have an effect on our peak temperatures later in the afternoon - as a result of our chilly morning, afternoon high temperatures only reached the mid to low 40s area wide. Our high temperature of 43° was our coolest in a week. As for the remainder of the evening ahead, increasing cloud cover will help keep temperatures a bit more mild over the coming hours; after seeing 36° around dinner time, we’ll fall to 33° by 10 p.m. Overnight low temperatures are expected to tumble back down into the upper 20s for many of us; we’ll bottom out near 29° in Evansville.
Fortunately, our Saturday looks as though it will be a more mild day - a strong southerly wind flow gusting as high as 20 mph will help drive temperatures back into the mid 50s on Saturday afternoon; we’re expecting a high temperature of 56° in the River City. An inbound cold front however, will swing across the region come Sunday. After first ushering our next round of rainfall into the Ohio Valley, a significant drop in temperatures will take hold of the Tri-State once the cold front passes. Scattered rainfall and a high near 55° On Sunday afternoon will give way to lows in the mid 20s by early Monday morning.
