Warmer Temperatures Returning

A warming trend settles in across the Tri-State.

Posted: Mar 5, 2021 6:32 PM

Friday marked our second straight day with declining temperatures across the Tri-State - those northerly winds certainly saw to our significant cool down from just 48 hours ago. After reaching 66° in Evansville on Wednesday, today we peaked at just 51°. The combination of our mainly clear skies and northerly winds will drive the mercury back down into the upper 20s for many of us early Saturday morning. Fortunately, the forecast ahead looks as though it will be a milder one - each afternoon is currently projected to be warmer than the last - if the forecast holds, we're looking at a warming trend that will last through the next work week!

While not exactly summer-like, Saturday will be warmer; we'll reach an afternoon high of 54° under mostly sunny skies. The real difference maker won't arrive however, until we wrap up the weekend ahead; Sunday looks warmer yet, reaching 57° that afternoon. but it will be our winds shifting back to the south paired with our ample amount of sunshine will help propel temperatures back into the low 60s as early as Monday afternoon - we'll hit 63° that day. This warming pattern is expected to linger through Thursday or Friday; it's possible that temperatures may exceed even 70°. If that occurs, it'll be the first time reaching that mark in Evansville since the afternoon of November 10th.

Our snowy, slick start to the day gave way to a gloomy, gray and chilly afternoon throughout the Tri-State. After only reaching temperatures in the mid 30s early in the day, we will see temperatures gradually tumble back down into the upper 20s by 10 o’clock. Despite the gradual clearing conditions overnight (which would normally lead too a much colder morning), the mercury is expected to remain relatively stable into early Tuesday morning. The return of a southerly wind flow overnight will help keep the temperatures milder as we head towards daybreak.
