The Tri-State and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Thursday

Heavy rain, strong winds and cool temperatures will make for a particularly unforgiving Thursday ahead.

Posted: Feb 3, 2021 11:05 PM

Thursday, for lack of a better word, will be miserable. Following a dry, cloudy and relatively quiet start to our day, rain chances will begin to reach the areas west of the Wabash between 10AM and 11AM tomorrow - from there the rain will push in over Evansville around noon. It's around that time that we'll begin to notice our winds strengthening; sustained winds are expected to range between 15 mph and 30 mph throughout the day ahead, but wind gusts could top out near 45 mph or 50 mph between 12PM and 6PM Thursday. In addition to the driving rain and blustery conditions, temperatures aren't expected to climb much higher than the mid 40s tomorrow - simply put, it'll be windy, damp and cold. That's just the afternoon - we're not done yet.

With winds still howling and rain still coming down area-wide, the cold front will finally pass east of Evansville between 5PM and 6PM; while that should bring an end to the strong winds, temperatures will sharply decrease. The drop from the mid 40s to the mid 30s in the span of an hour will be enough to produce brief periods of wintry mixture and snowfall as the last of the precipitation pushes east of the region. Evansville will dry out shortly before 8PM - the last of the rain and wintry precip will exit east between 9PM and 10PM Thursday evening. By the time it's all said and done, areas north of the Ohio may see more than 0.75" of rainfall while most of our Kentuckian communities will receive closer to 0.50" of rain.

Wear Your Mask.
