We are looking out for our first big snow event of the season! If you haven’t seen any snow yet, it will be here shortly. Current model data is showing our westernmost counties will be receiving the white stuff first, as well as our northern counties. From there, it will gradually push eastward reaching Evansville around 1PM. Snowfall is expected to be on and off until 6PM. It won’t fully be out of the area until 8PM, especially for our eastern communities. Make sure to stay weather aware and make arrangements for your afternoon plans. It could be a slick commute Tri-State wide.
The majority of the Tri-State is under a Winter Weather Advisory until 6 p.m. tonight. The latest projections indicate that the majority of us are looking at 1-2" of accumulations. There is a possibility some areas north and east could get nearly 3” by the end of the evening. Just a side note, this is all going to depend on our temperatures. Right now, we are still above freezing, but those values are expected to drop through the afternoon and evening, which could help the snow stick.
The cloud cover above the Tri-State will exit shortly after the snowfall does tonight, but with the left over moisture on surfaces there is a good chance some of it could freeze over. Overnight lows are supposed to dip down into the upper teens and low 20s. The good news, we will be dry but with the windy conditions it could be feeling like the single digits in some areas Thursday morning.
