The Evansville P-47 Foundation said Thursday that the P-47 Thunderbolt wouldn't be returning to Evansville on Thursday as originally scheduled.

"The flight team, the pilot, and the P-47 Foundation have decided to postpone the arrival of the Tarheel Hal because of the weather," the Evansville P-47 Foundation said on Thursday.

The foundation says that as of now, the plan is for the P-47 to arrive in Evansville on Friday, following its original flight path.

The Evansville P-47 Foundation said that the main concern was the safety of both the pilot and the aircraft.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
