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.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
