I'm tracking a mixture of rain and snowfall that will settle in over the Tri-State late tonight and early tomorrow morning. The first of the scattered precipitation will reach our westernmost counties shortly after dinnertime before spreading eastward across the region during the ensuing hours. Surface temperatures lingering in the mid to upper 30s this evening will keep any precip before midnight from transitioning into ice or snow. That transition however, will begin to occur during the predawn hours on Wednesday.
Temperatures north of Evansville will dip as low as the upper 20s and low 30s as the system passes through Wednesday morning. As a result, areas along and north of I-64 and west of the Wabash River will see the greatest risk for ice and snowfall. Obviously, the periodic wintry mixture and snowfall will make for a hazardous travel tomorrow morning and early afternoon, especially for the areas north of Evansville. The last of the organized wintry precipitation will pass east of the region around our lunch hour Wednesday, leaving the northern third of the Tri-State with minor accumulation up to an inch.
However, it's likely that much of the accumulation we see Wednesday won't linger much longer than that night - temperatures on Thursday will creep back up to 40° and above area-wide and Friday looks even warmer. In fact, after reaching 46° on Friday afternoon, temperatures will continue to surge throughout the Tri-State. By the time Monday rolls around (the official beginning of the winter season) temperatures will have reached the mid to low 50s!
