Reminder: It's Still Winter

A passing cold front will drive our recent mild weather from the Tri-State.

Posted: Jan 13, 2021 6:23 PM

Just another day in paradise, right? It's hard to beat temperatures near 50° with plenty of sunshine to boot - we topped out at 49° in Evansville on Wednesday, marking our warmest day since January 4th. While temperatures are expected to remain mild through the first half of our Thursday, a passing cold front will reach the region tomorrow and remind us all that it is still very much winter. Expect increasing cloud cover overnight ahead of the advancing frontal boundary; we'll also see our southerly winds pick up quite a bit - wind gusts near 25 mph will help keep temperatures warmer-than-average Thursday. Temperatures will once again peak around 50° prior to the arrival of that cold front.

The current model data indicates that the front will reach the Tri-State shortly after our lunch hour; it's around that time that scattered rain showers will begin to affect our westernmost counties. As the cold front pushes further east, cooler air will begin to spread across the Tri-State - the mercury will quickly drop from the upper 40s and low 50s Thursday afternoon, into the mid to upper 30s after dinnertime and toward the freezing mark overnight.

Friday looks cool and windy. Peak temperatures will only reach the upper 30s and low 40s; we'll reach just 40° in the River City. It's possible that we may even see periods of scattered snowfall that evening, though no accumulation is expected. With winds still gusting as high as 20 mph or even 25 mph Saturday morning, our morning low of 29° could feel more like 15° at times! Saturday and Sunday still look quite breezy and cool - temperatures will reach just 38° and 39° respectively and wind gusts will remain up near 20 mph. Bundle up!

Wear Your Mask.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
