Today’s high temperature of 70° was our warmest in Evansville in just over three weeks; the last time we saw the temperatures this warm was on the afternoon of November 10th. Fortunately, our evening ahead looks just as pleasant - temperatures are expected to gradually dwindle from 55° at 7 o’clock back down towards 51° around 10 PM. A weak passing cold front will shift or winds northward overnight; the combination of northerly winds and clear skies will allow temperatures to fall back into the upper 30s and low 40s throughout the Tri-State. We'll kick off our Saturday morning with a temperature of 41° in Evansville.

Despite our anticipated sunshine Saturday, temperatures will indeed be cooler throughout the Ohio Valley. We’re expected to reach a high temperature of just 57° in Saturday afternoon (which is still 8° above average for this time of the year, but unfortunately 13° cooler than our peak temperature on Friday). Expect increasing cloud cover late Saturday evening ahead of our next round of rainfall expected to reach the tri-state late Sunday morning or early that afternoon.

A passing warm front early Sunday morning will unleash sporadic and scattered rain showers and possibly a couple thunderstorms late that morning and early afternoon as temperatures gradually creep back into the mid 60s area wide. Our greatest chance for shower and thunderstorm activity however, will hold off until Sunday evening. It’s at that point that a cold front swinging in from the west will begin interact with our warmth here at home; by the time it reaches the Tri-State (around 9 PM Sunday evening), there is expected to be a well-developed line of thunderstorms spanning the leading edge of the advancing cold front. Some of the cells in bedded within this line may produce strong gusty winds, torrential rain, and even small hail. The latest model data indicates that the last of the storms should exit east of the Tri-State during the predawn hours on Monday.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
