We will sneak out another mild and breezy day in the Tri State. The stronger southerly winds along with sunny skies will boost temperatures to the low-to-mid 80s this afternoon. Which will the warmest in almost 3 weeks (April 9th). Meanwhile, winds could gust as high as 30 mph through the daylight hours. Clouds will roll in through the evening and overnight.

Grab the rain gear before heading out tomorrow. Our latest model run has heavy pockets of showers and storms arriving as early as 8 AM. Rain will be off and on and could be intense at times. A secondary line of storms will develop by the evening into the overnight. Storms along the line could have embedded strong-to-severe characteristics. As of 9 AM Tuesday, the Storm Predication Center has the entirety of the Tri State under a 1 out of 5 on the Threat Index. The biggest threats worth watching will be damaging wind gust (58 MPH+) , hail and isolated tornadoes. The rain threat will continue through Thursday morning. Locations in the area could receive a grand total of 1-3+" of rainfall by the time we begin to dry out. Flash flooding will be a concern both on your Wednesday evening and Thursday morning commute.

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.
