Not that anyone was focused on the weather today, but it wasn't all that bad across the Tri-State - while high temperatures remained significantly cooler than our last two afternoons, today's peak temperature of 41° was right on average for this time of the year. After clearing skies throughout the late morning and early afternoon, our clear conditions are only expected to last into early morning hours tomorrow as a disturbance to our west inches ever closer. We'll awake to mostly cloudy skies with temperatures near 30°.

We'll see increasing cloud cover throughout the morning and early afternoon; the overcast skies will again help keep temperature from climbing much higher than 40° tomorrow afternoon. As for tomorrow evening, we're already tracking our next chance of precipitation. Arriving first around our dinner hour as scattered rainfall, the precip will begin to transition shortly thereafter as temperatures begin to fall. By the time 8PM rolls around, temperatures will have dipped into the low 30s - that scattered rainfall will likely transitioned into a light snowfall by then.

Current model data suggests that by the time we all wake up Friday, some areas south of the Ohio may see more than 1" of snowfall accumulation (or even as much as 2" in some spots). Fortunately, by Friday afternoon temperatures will have peaked back into the upper 30s and low 40s area-wide, melting most (if not all) of the accumulated snowfall. The weekend ahead looks just as cool however, after reaching 39° in Evansville on Friday, we'll only hit 38° and 37° on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Wear Your Mask.

The Tri-State is about to witness a metric ton of change over the next 36 hours or so, but before we get to the meat of the forecast let's focus on the hearer and the now - after seeing an absolutely gorgeous start to the work week with afternoon highs nearing the 70° mark and little to no cloud cover, clear skies will linger through the evening ahead and into tomorrow morning as temperature gradually dwindle into the upper 30s and low 40s area-wide. We'll fall to 42° in Evansville setting the stage for yet another mild, albeit far less quiet Tuesday ahead.
