Rain and Snow Head for the Tri-State

Another Taste of winter weather is on the way.

Posted: Dec 14, 2020 6:14 PM

After only reaching 40° earlier this afternoon, clear skies and a weak northerly wind flow will help drive temperatures back into the mid 20s overnight - we'll fall to 25° in Evansville, our coolest morning since December 2nd. Tomorrow looks as though it'll be quiet, but cool - expect increasing cloud cover throughout the day as temperatures again hover around the upper 30s and low 40s. It's Tuesday night into Wednesday morning that things get interesting for the Tri-State.

A rain/snow mixture will reach the Tri-State during the predawn hours Wednesday and will continue to affect the region through the later morning and early afternoon that day. Our Kentuckian communities will likely receive rain chances, though those of you along the Ohio may see periods of ice and snow as well. Most of our Hoosier and Illinoian counties will receive a mixture of rain and snow with little to no accumulation. However, the further north you go the likelier snowfall accumulation becomes.

Current model data indicates that the areas between Fairfield, IL and Washington, IN may see up to 1" of accumulation by Wednesday afternoon. That being said, peak temperatures that day will reach into the mid to upper 30s meaning that any snowfall lingering after the conclusion of our winter weather won't likely last all that long. Some areas may see some minor amounts of snow linger into early Thursday as morning lows will dip back into the mid to low 20s. Thursday afternoon, on the other hand, looks warmer; we'll peak back into the low 40s that day.

Wear Your Mask.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
