We saw another cold morning across the Tri-State. There was a little bit of sunshine, but temperatures were frigid! Evansville hit an overnight low of 4°. However, wind chill values were a tad bit better than Tuesday morning - still some of us feeling below 0°.
This afternoon will bring highs in the mid 20s under mostly cloudy skies. Winds will be out of the East at 5-10 mph, which will make it feel more like the mid to upper teens for your Wednesday. Even though there is a big improvement in the temperature department, snow chances are slowly creeping in our direction.
The latest model data suggests that light snowfall will reach the Tri-State later this afternoon. Scattered snow showers will be likely through the early evening hours. The system is expected to become more widespread this evening into the overnight hours. Don't be surprised if sleet and freezing rain become part of the mix overnight. Please make arrangements and stay prepared heading into tomorrow morning. Overnight lows will stay around the low 20s, which could leave roads on the slick side.
The last of the snowfall should exit northeast of the Tri-State tomorrow afternoon. Generally speaking, current projections indicate that the area will receive between 1" and 2" of accumulation - the lesser amounts falling in the far northwestern corner of the Tri-State. There is a good chance our far southern communities could receive up to 4" if the system stays on the projected track.
The National Weather Service has placed Caldwell, Hopkins, and Muhlenberg Counties in Kentucky under a Winter Storm Warning. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for the remainder of the Tri-State besides our far northern counties.
