We are walking out the door to cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 30s across the Tri-State. It's definitely a mild start to the morning, considering our overnight lows should be in the mid 20s. This trend will continue into the afternoon with more sunshine.

While winds may be a bit breezy at times, temperatures will surge across the Ohio Valley this afternoon! We'll see our warmest temperatures in a week as the mercury creeps up into the mid to low 50s area-wide - we'll hit 53° in Evansville (that's 12° above the norm for this time of the year). Changes will start moving in tonight as a cold front passes through.

We'll kick off our Friday with morning lows near 28°. The clear skies anticipated for the end of the work week won't do much to drive temperatures higher - in fact, northerly winds will continue to force a cold arctic air mass in over the Tri-State that afternoon. After only reaching 39° earlier in the day, temperatures will dive into the upper teens and low 20s by the predawn hours Saturday. Evansville's morning low of 21° will mark our coldest recorded temperature of 2021 and the lowest since the morning of December 26th. Stay warm.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
