Flash Flood Watches will be in effect for most of the Tri State starting at 1 PM in anticipation of multiple inches of heavy rain. Early-risers will definitely need the rain gear before heading out. Luckily, most communities will remain rain-free for your morning commute.

The latest timeline has light rain from the west arriving by 10AM. The rest of your Wednesday will be a be a soggy one. On and off thunderstorms will continue to migrate through the region. There’s a brief window for stronger storms through the evening. Damaging wind gust and hail will be the threats worth monitoring between the hours of 7 PM - 5 AM.

The most urgent and widespread threat will be possible flash flooding. You may want to avoid notorious roads that are prone to flooding. If you want to track the latest on radar and receive notifications for severe watches and warnings download the Storm Team 44 App.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
