Tuesday Morning Forecast (12/22/20)

Posted: Dec 22, 2020 9:32 AM

Afternoon highs will spike into the low-50s once again today. The return of southerly winds and sunnier skies will have temperatures remaining mild through the daylight hours. By daybreak tomorrow the mercury will start around 40° with partly cloudy skies.
Rain will be moving in as early as 2PM tomorrow and becoming widespread through the region by the late-afternoon and evening hours. Showers could be heavy at times. The good news is, the rain threat will be winding down for the area by Christmas Eve morning. We cannot rule out a possible passing flurry through the early-morning hours, especially in locations east of I-69.
The biggest concern for the entirety of the Tri-Sate will be the sharp plunge in temperatures. The arctic air really settles in by Christmas morning. Actual temperatures will range between the mid-to-upper teens. When factoring in the winds, it will feel like the single-digits.

In their latest convective outlook, the Storm Prediction Center has reduced our threat for severe weather. Much of the Tri-State remains Under a “1” and a “2” on the Threat Index. Strong winds remain the greatest threat from any storms that develop. Overcast skies for most of the day hindered much of our potential for Severe Weather. A cold front and associated low currently passing through the Tri-State may still produce a potentially Severe thunderstorm or two. The latest model data seems to be in agreement that the greatest likelihood for impactful weather won’t arrive until our greatest threat for Severe Weather concludes. A line of showers and storms will reach out westernmost communities around 5:30 PM. From there, the rainfall will reach Evansville, Henderson and Madisonville by 7PM before pushing in over Owensboro and Jasper before 8PM. Scattered showers may linger for a time following the passage of the initial line of rainfall, making for a damp and cooler evening ahead.
