Record low temperatures were experienced this morning in the upper
single digits to mid teens making it feel like the middle of winter
in November. Plentiful sunshine has done little to warm temperatures
with the 1 to 3 inch snowpack in place over much of the region. 2pm
temperatures range from 23 at Evansville to 31 at Poplar Bluff which
are record cold highs for this date. West southwest winds around 10
to 15 mph have kept windchills in the teens.
A gradual warm up is expected through the week. By Thursday night
into Friday, the pattern will become unsettled. Rain chances move
in by Friday morning and last through the weekend. There could be
some light freezing rain briefly Friday morning. Otherwise, just
rain with milder temperatures in the 50s by Friday and above normal
temperatures in the low 60s for Sunday. The best chance of showers
and even a few thunderstorms should be Saturday night, as a vigorous
upper level system and associated surface low pressure move
northeast across the area.
