Clouds will keep temperatures at bay this afternoon. It will be a challenge for many locations along and north of the Ohio River to approach the 40-degree mark. The grayer skies will remain in place through the overnight as lows only cool into the mid-30s.
Rain will be on the menu for the Tri-State starting tomorrow and beyond. Latest timeline has showers beginning for the area by the late-morning hours. The rain threat will become widespread for the region by 4PM and last all evening. Second to that, the advancement of our next cold front will be swinging through the entirety of the region by the late-evening hours. The mercury will dip near-freezing as the moisture lingers. The combination of the two could give parts of the area a chance of seeing a transition from rain to a sleet/freezing rain mix, depending on how cold we can get.
We want to emphasis that this is a fluid situation and is subject to change in the next 24 hours. As of now, locations along and just south of the Ohio river have the best chances of seeing the wintery mix (Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro & Morganfield). The brief switchover appears to happen between Wednesday night at 10pm through the daybreak hours of Thursday. Light ice accumulations are possible.
