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.
