We're waking up to cloudy, but cold conditions this morning. Low temperatures only dipped to the upper 20s and lower 30s. Make sure to bundle up because those wind chill values are in the lower 20s in most communities.

Overcast skies will dominate across the Tri-State this afternoon. Temperatures will struggle, only hitting a high of only 37°. Decreasing clouds tonight will allow temperatures to dive even lower across the Tri-State; we'll fall to 26° in Evansville early Friday morning.

It'll be sunny and breezy with a high of 46° on Friday before rain chances arrive Saturday and disrupt your weekend. Whereas Saturday will be cloudy, cool and rainy, at least our Sunday will be clearer; though temperatures will remain in the mid 40s as we wrap up the weekend ahead. However, the real warm up won't arrive until the winter season officially kicks off. Yeah, you read right. The winter season officially gets underway early Monday morning with the annual Winter Solstice - temperatures that afternoon will climb back into the mid to low 50s areawide.

Wednesday morning marked our coldest start to a day in nearly 3 weeks - morning low temperatures dove into the single digits for much of the Tri-State and our northerly winds routinely drove wind chill values well below zero throughout the Lower Ohio Valley. If there was any silver lining, our clear skies did allow temperatures to climb back into the mid 20s later in the day; though Evansville’s peak temperature of 25° remained 17° below average for this time of the year. The clear skies are expected to linger throughout the evening and much of the night ahead and will allow temperatures to fall back down into the mid to low teens early Thursday morning. We will fall to 14° in Evansville around daybreak Thursday.
