Warmer Weather Returns

The Tri-State receives a nice break from the cool weather.

Our grey, gloomy conditions have cleared this evening - after only reaching 42° earlier on due to those overcast skies, our now clear skies will allow the mercury to plummet back down below the freezing mark overnight. We'll kick off our Wednesday morning under a few clouds with temperatures right around 31° - fortunately, abnormally warm weather will return shortly thereafter and our upcoming 48 hours look like they'll be nothing short of beautiful.

Higher pressure settling in over the southeastern quarter of the country will strengthen our already established southerly wind flow across the Tri-State overnight - once those southerly winds are paired with our clear skies Wednesday afternoon, the combination will help drive temperatures to their highest point in nearly two weeks! The last time the mercury climbed as high as Wednesday's anticipated high temperature of 58° was on November 25th. Believe it or not, Thursday and Friday look even warmer!

Temperatures will continue to surge through the remainder of the work week; it'll be 60° and sunny on Thursday and 61°, breezy and mostly sunny come Friday. In fact, the mild air will linger into the weekend as well, or at least a part of it. After only falling into the low 50s early Saturday morning, a passing low will push through the Ohio Valley generating periods of heavy rain and an eventual cooldown - After peaking near 15° above the norm on Saturday afternoon, temperatures will nosedive.

Cold, arctic air rushing to fill the void left by the departing core of low pressure and rainfall will drive afternoon highs into the low 40s and overnight lows back down into the upper 20s and low 30s late this weekend and early next week. Considering that's where we currently find ourselves, you may want to make the most of the mild weather while it lasts. Enjoy!

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
