406 AM CDT Thu Mar 13 2014
Scattered light snow and sleet showers streamed southeast through
the Evansville Tri State Wednesday evening, as a compact upper-level
storm system moved southeast through the area. Skies became mostly
clear throughout the area overnight. Northwest winds diminished
through the night, and by 4 AM were light or calm. Temperatures had
fallen below freezing once again, and by 4 AM, readings ranged from
21 in Mt Vernon Illinois to 32 at Poplar Bluff Missouri.
Weak surface high pressure will push east of the area this morning,
allowing south winds to develop this afternoon. The south winds will
become quite strong through Friday, which will lead to a warm up to
near normal levels with highs near 60 Friday and Saturday. A storm
system will develop over the region over the weekend. At this time
it appears that this storm system will only bring rain to mainly the
southern half of the area Saturday night and Sunday. Temperatures
will fall back below normal Sunday and Monday, but another
moderating trend is expected Tuesday into Wednesday of next week.
