TODAY: It was a foggy start to our Friday and some of our communities are still dealing with the fog this afternoon. We should see a mix of sun and clouds with temperatures reaching the upper 30s and lower 40s. Conditions are likely to remain dry with a calm breeze out of the northeast.

TONIGHT: All eyes are on the winter weather expected for the Tri-State. We could see our first round of rainfall as early as 10 PM in our northwestern communities, but it won’t take long for it to transition to snow. The activity will migrate to the south giving areas around the Ohio River snowfall by daybreak. Temperatures will be right around or above the freezing mark making it difficult for us to see high amounts of accumulation.

This active weather is coming from a core of low pressure swinging southeastward from the Upper Great Plains that will merge with another over the Mississippi Valley. This merger will create a significant winter weather event for portions of the Great Plains and the Tennessee Valley. For us here in the Lower Ohio Valley, snowfall totals are expected to be minimal. Possibly a dusting to about 1" by the time we wake up through Saturday. Heavier amounts are looking to fall in the central portions of the Tri-State and to the west.

THIS WEEKEND: While many of us will see light snowfall through Saturday morning and early afternoon, the latest model data indicates that the majority of the Tri-State will get a break from the snowfall Saturday afternoon and evening. There is a possibility we may see a resurgence Sunday, but there is a lot of uncertainity. If the core of the low shifts northward we could see a couple of inches in our far southern communities of western Kentucky. Right now, it is tracking south and if it stays that way we won't have to worry about any snowfall Sunday. Stay with 44 News on air and online for continued updates!

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.
