TODAY-TONIGHT-MONDAY:

Skies vary from overcast to partly cloudy skies with gusty winds.  They are sustained generally at 15-20 mph with gusts to 35 mph.  Where the sun is out, sporadic gusts to 40 mph are possible.  Temperatures will peak at 64-70 (68 Evansville) today.  Scattered showers will develop late & especially evening-tonight.  A few isolated t’storms cannot be ruled out.  Lows tonight will drop to 41-49 (46 Evansville) from north to south as a cold front moves through.

Any showers will exit the Tri-State Monday with highs of 47-57 from north to south (53 Evansville) with partly cloudy skies along/north of the river to largely mostly cloudy skies south of it.

MONDAY NIGHT-WEDNESDAY:

Showers & t’storms will develop Tuesday with potential squall line of storms late in the day.  Winds may gust to 36 mph from the south with highs of 63-70.  Sporadic damaging wind gusts & perhaps an isolated, brief tornado will be possible.  Slight Risk for severe Tri-State-wide gives way to an Enhanced Slight Risk just southwest of Hopkins County at the moment.  A couple strong, long-track tornadoes are possible northern Mississippi to Tennessee.

Rainfall will end Tuesday night, followed by dry slot clearing, gusty west/southwest winds & lows in the 40s.  Rainfall of 0.75-1.25″ is possible.

With gusty west/northwest winds Wednesday, temperatures will fall into the 30s with potential of scattered snow showers in the afternoon-evening.  Dusting is possible.

THURSDAY-SATURDAY:

Remainder of the week looks dry with sun/some clouds & highs in the 30s to 40s & lows in the teens to 20s.

SATURDAY NIGHT-NEXT SUNDAY (FEBRUARY 7):

Snow showers are possible next Saturday night to Sunday.  Some minor accumulation is possible with best potential north of I-64.

MONDAY (FEBRUARY 8)-WEDNESDAY (FEBRUARY 10):

Stratospheric warming episode underway is sign of blast of much colder air on the horizon.  Highs may only run 13-21 around February 8 with north winds at 15-25 mph with wind chills as low as -5.

Lows of 2-7 are possible on the morning of February 9, followed by highs of 17-25 on February 10.

In areas that get snow north of I-64, lows of -2 to 1 are possible.

FEBRUARY 11-15:

Looks like we may have winter weather issues for about 24 hours February 12-13 with some accumulating icy mix &/or even snow.  However, should go to rain before ending by February 14.  I would not rule out some brief snow system in that 15th time frame.

FEBRUARY 16-24:

Above-normal temperature trend appears likely February 16 to February 24 with potential of rain.

FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 6:

Analog trends/model data supports that temperatures will run 5 to 10 degrees below normal OVERALL.  With potentially an active southern subtropical jet, need to watch for perhaps one winter weather system.
