It was the coolest April since 1997 at Evansville & coolest overall for the Tri-State since 1983. Now, the first 7 days of May have been the warmest since 2012 for Evansville & for the Tri-State as a whole. The warmer than normal pattern will hold for a good chunk of May. Temperatures may reach around 90 by Saturday.
Some severe weather is possible Wednesday evening-night. Some severe weather is also possible Thursday & Friday given warm front in the vicinity with shear & unstable airmass (warm, humid highs in the 80s). Main threat is wind/hail, though an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. These storms look scattered & not widespread at any point. The magnitude of severe threat is a bit unclear right now. At least Marginal to Slight risk seems reasonable on most of these days in parts of the Tri-State.
Saturday looks dry & hot with 90 & strong southwest winds to 32 mph.
Sunday also looks windy & hot with highs around 90, though a few storms may skim by our far northwestern in the evening with some severe threat. Severe threat may exist Sunday night, perhaps &/or Monday with warm, humid weather.
