Thawing Out the Tri-State

Despite another bitterly cold morning ahead, we're tracking warmer weather headed for the Tri-State.

Thursday morning's low of 28° in Evansville marked the River City's coldest start to a day in just over 7 months! The last time we dealt with a temperature that cold was on the morning of April 2nd when we dipped all the way to 27° - had we succeeded in eclipsing that mark, we'd have to go all the way back to February 21st of 2021 to find a colder morning in the Tri-State! Despite the bitterly cold start to our day, temperatures did indeed climb slightly higher - after only reaching 50° the two previous afternoons in Evansville, we tipped the scales at 52° earlier on. Sure, it's not a significant increase over the last 48 hours, but it represents the beginning of what will end up a significant warmup across the Tri-State. This evening however, is expected to be anything but warm - a temperature of 43° around dinnertime will give way to 38° by 10PM before falling all the way back down into the upper 20s early Friday morning.

We'll kick off our Friday with a morning low temperature near 29° under crystal clear skies. Our northerly wind flow (which has remained a constant in recent days) will shift eastward Friday; the combination of a non-northerly wind and sunshine will allow temperatures to first reach 51° by noon before peaking at 55° later in the day tomorrow, reaching our warmest temperature in Evansville since Halloween! The warming trend is expected to continue on into the weekend as well - come Saturday, southwesterly winds and an ample supply of sunshine will drive temperatures back into the low 60s! Higher pressure settling in over the Eastern Seaboard and the southeastern quarter of the country over the coming days will help to pump warmer air northward in to the Ohio Valley. That warmer air will drive the mercury up to 66° in Evansville on Sunday and by Monday, we could be looking at our first 70° temperature in more than two weeks!

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some higher amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
