Tracking Snow Chances for Thursday Night

We're starting off dry and chilly this Thursday morning, but as we head into the later part of the day snow and rain chances will move into the Tri-State.

We woke up to mostly cloudy skies with temperatures around 30° across the Tri-State, Evansville even dipped into the upper 20s. While we saw a little bit of sunshine, the brutal wind chills made it feel bitterly cold. Most of our communities felt more like the lower 20s.

We’ll start to see some changes as we head into the afternoon. Increasing cloud cover and wind gusts up to 25 mph will be likely through the afternoon. It’s going to make it really difficult for high temperatures to reach the low 40s as overcast skies will take over. We’re already seeing signs of snow and rain just south of the viewing area, but it will become more widespread late afternoon/early evening. Most of the precipitation should start off as rainfall because we will mostly likely be in the upper 30s. Most of the precipitation has a good chance of transitioning over to snow between the hours of 9:00 p.m.- 12:00 a.m., but this will be highly dependent on temperatures decreasing.

Right now, the model data isn’t showing a big amount of snowfall accumulation. By the time we all wake up Friday, most areas south of the Ohio will be looking at a dusting to .5" of snow. Temperatures will be in the low 30s, which could make for a slick commute across the Tri-State. Flurries have a possibility of sticking around for much of the morning, but clearing out by the afternoon. Temperatures will be cooler - upper 30s with mostly cloudy skies.

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.
