We’re stuck in repeat as we head into our third day of warm, humid, and damp conditions. This morning started out with mostly dry skies, before light rainfall moved across the central portions of the Tri-State. It definitely added to the warm and humid conditions – we started out in the low 70s across the Tri-State.

This afternoon isn’t going to be much different other than the chance for some strong storms that have the potential of dumping heavy rainfall on our communities. Highs are still expected to reach the low 80s under mostly cloudy skies. We’re tracking heavy rainfall to our south that will be moving through our area this afternoon into the early evening hours. Make sure to stay weather aware!

The Storm Prediction Center has placed us under a “1” Marginal Risk on the Threat Index for severe weather. Those communities included are around and south of I-64. The main threats with this system are gusty winds and heavy rainfall that could cause localized flooding.

Tonight into tomorrow will be mainly dry with some lingering showers. Temperatures will be back in the low 70s by daybreak. Isolated storms will be likely Wednesday with highs in the low 80s.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
