TODAY: Most of the region kicked off this morning with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the upper 60s and low 70s. You can expect partly sunny skies and temperatures heating up to seasonable standards. Highs will reach near the low 90s. However, the humidity isn’t giving us much of a break. It could feel more like the mid to upper 90s at times. An isolated shower can’t be ruled out.

TONIGHT: Conditions will start changing tonight. We're tracking a low pressure system off to the northwest that could bring some shower and thunderstorm chances overnight into early Friday morning. It looks to mainly affect our communities around and north of I-64. Storms are expected to move through as early as 8PM and could last into the early predawn hours. The Storm Prediction Center has placed our far northwestern communities under a “1” on the Threat Index for severe weather. Temperatures will drop into the low 70s Friday morning with mostly cloudy skies.

REST OF THE WEEK: While most of our Friday morning will be dry, there is a good chance of seeing more showers and storms developing in the late morning and through the afternoon hours. We could see several rounds of heavy rain. Highs will only top out into the mid to upper 80s. Similar conditions will carry over into the weekend.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
