The main focus heading into the rest of the day is the winter storm. The main impacts associated with this system is heavy snow, blowing and drifting snow, and very cold wind chills. A Winter Storm Warning is still in effect for the entire Tri State until tomorrow morning. The first wave of snowfall brought some of our communities more than 1" of snowfall this morning. 

The second band will bring us our heaviest amounts of snowfall through the rest of the day. We could receive anywhere from 1"-2" an hour. Some of our far southern communities will see some sleet mixed in with the snow. Combining those conditions with strong winds and bitterly cold temperatures is setting us up for a very dangerous environment this afternoon into tonight. Snowfall will let off the gas as we get closer to 5 p.m., but we'll see lighter snow through much of the evening. 

If you must head out, be prepared to battle with slick roads and snow drifts. Don't be surprised if travel is still difficult by tomorrow morning. Not to mention, we won't get above freezing tomorrow afternoon. Most of the snow won't melt and then we're talking about snow chances returning Wednesday into Thursday.

We're still looking to receive anywhere between 7"-11" of snowfall by the end of the night.

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.
