Thursday evening, there were numerous thunderstorm warnings, tornado warnings, and high winds that caused damage to property in different parts of the Tri-state.

We have received photos from viewers who have captured some of the damage.

One homeowner in Evansville experienced a tree falling down on her house, and hitting an electric meter in the back causing a small fire, luckily the homeowner Tamika Vaughn and her daughter were not injured.

The rain took care of the fire, and the homeowners are waiting on their insurance company to assess the damage.

A tree also fell down on the Northside of Red Bank Road, near Mt Vernon, closing the area while crews got everything cleaned up.

We woke up to dry and cold conditions this Tuesday morning. Unfortunately, there won’t be any drastic changes this afternoon. Increasing cloud cover will be likely as a cold northerly flow continues ushering in chilly air. Highs won’t be going very far, we’ll likely only reach the mid to upper 30s Tri-State wide. We’re tracking a little bit of winter weather out to our north and west. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight with a chance of flurries/light rain. It won't be a big snow by any stretch, but you could see some flurries flying Tuesday night into Wednesday morning around the Tri-State. Don't expect more than a dusting, with greater chances falling north of I-64.
