It was quite the messy morning! We woke up to widespread showers and mild temperatures. Most communities were in the low to mid 50s. Thankfully, flooding issues have stayed on the minor side, but Evansville has received nearly an 1.5" since last night. Showers will slowly dissipate through the late morning hours - so we can expect hit and miss rain for much of the day.
As showers taper off through the morning, it will help high temperatures rise to even warmer digits. We'll hit 63° in Evansville while others inch toward the mid to upper 60s. Unfortunately, we’re not done with the rain and storm chances. We're tracking a surface cold front that could develop thunderstorms with the possibility of turning severe. Any convection that develops in this
environment could produce a few damaging wind gusts and perhaps a tornado or two - that's why the Storm Prediction Center has the entire Tri-State under a "1" on the Severe Weather Threat index for this afternoon. Current model data suggests this may occur anytime between 12:00-5:00 p.m.
As for our Wednesday evening, mostly cloudy skies will persist, with temperatures on the down turn. Overnight lows will dip into the mid 40s. Get ready for a pleasant Thanksgiving holiday! We'll see scattered clouds with pops of sunshine. Highs will still be above seasonable averages - Evansville will reach 57°.
