Snow Ends, Temperatures Plunge, Snow Returns

Heavy snow gives way to bitter cold. Bitter cold gives way to more snow.

Our Winter Storm Warning will remain in effect for the entire region through 6am Tuesday, but our heavy snow will continue to fall across Evansville until shortly after 9PM - the last of the snow should exit north of the Tri-State between 10PM and 11PM this evening. By the time it's all said and done, snowfall totals will range between 6" and 11" area wide. Additionally, blowing and drifting snow may continue to be a problem throughout the overnight hours and into tomorrow morning (breezy northwesterly winds will continue to affect east/westbound roadways the most).

Unfortunately, the departure of our heavy snowfall won't bring about an end to our bitterly cold temperatures - Evansville's temperatures will dip to 8° early Tuesday morning, but the aforementioned winds may drive the wind chill values down to -15° in spots tomorrow morning! Worse yet, afternoon highs aren't even expected to reach the 20° mark for many of us; we'll only hit 19° in Evansville Tuesday afternoon - that's nearly 30° below the norm for this time of the year! That being said, one might want to make the most of our Tuesday regardless of the temperature - we're already tracking another round of snow headed for the Tri-State Wednesday.

Current model data indicates that scattered snowfall will reach the Tri-State Wednesday morning and continue on and off through Thursday afternoon - it remains a little bit too early for a detailed snowfall projection, but preliminary data suggests that our Wednesday/Thursday event won't be as significant as our Sunday/Monday round of snow. Nonetheless, a second bout of snowfall in three days warrants a watchful eye - Storm Team 44 will continue to keep you updated and aware of any changes to the forecast.

Our snowy, slick start to the day gave way to a gloomy, gray and chilly afternoon throughout the Tri-State. After only reaching temperatures in the mid 30s early in the day, we will see temperatures gradually tumble back down into the upper 20s by 10 o’clock. Despite the gradual clearing conditions overnight (which would normally lead too a much colder morning), the mercury is expected to remain relatively stable into early Tuesday morning. The return of a southerly wind flow overnight will help keep the temperatures milder as we head towards daybreak.
