USI art student Zion Riley made a life-sized Spongebob Squarepants using just the snow in his front yard over the weekend.

It's the first time in years that there was enough snow for Riley to get to work on something new.

"The last time it snowed really was in 2018 and that's when I did the Mickey and Minnie. This time it snowed a lot, so we just thought to keep the tradition going," said Riley.

We're told it took about 24 hours for Riley and his family to create the Spongebob that stands more than six feet tall. Riley says only a spray bottle, spatula, a shovel, and their hands were used to make the impressive work of art.

Pretty neat!

The Tri-State is about to witness a metric ton of change over the next 36 hours or so, but before we get to the meat of the forecast let's focus on the hearer and the now - after seeing an absolutely gorgeous start to the work week with afternoon highs nearing the 70° mark and little to no cloud cover, clear skies will linger through the evening ahead and into tomorrow morning as temperature gradually dwindle into the upper 30s and low 40s area-wide. We'll fall to 42° in Evansville setting the stage for yet another mild, albeit far less quiet Tuesday ahead.
