Arden joined the 14 News team in April 2018 as the weekend meteorologist. She is thrilled to be back home in the Tri-State. Arden grew up in Daviess County, KY. In fact, the tornado that hit Owensboro on Jan. 3, 2000 is what first inspired her interest in weather. Arden interned at 14 News while she was in college. She graduated from Western Kentucky University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science degree in meteorology and a minor in broadcasting. After graduation, Arden worked as the weekend meteorologist at WYMT Mountain News in Hazard, KY until she joined the 14 News team. In her free time, Arden enjoys playing tennis, watching The Office and spending time with her family and fiancé.
Light rain is possible late tonight and into Sunday. Temperatures will fall to near freezing tonight, so it is possible we could see a brief changeover to light freezing rain just long enough to cause a few slick spots, mainly on the bridges and overpasses.
A Flood Watch remains in effect for the entire Tri-State until 6 a.m. Tuesday. Rain is likely throughout that entire time period. Though we may get a brief break every now and then, the rain will really be pretty steady over the whole next day and a half.
This unseasonably warm weather will continue through the weekend and into next week. However, while this weekend will remain dry, an active weather pattern will bring us plenty of rain for the workweek.
There is some snow possible this upcoming week, but our main focus will be the cold. A few light rain and snow showers are possible this evening, but those will taper off as we go through the overnight hours. Low temperatures will be in the mid to upper 20s.
We remain on alert overnight as temperatures will fall into the low teens, and wind chill values will once again dip into the single digits. Any snow or ice that melted today will likely refreeze, forming black ice and causing slick road conditions, especially on secondary roads.
It will remain bitterly cold and breezy throughout the day on Sunday with high temperatures only reaching into the mid 20s and wind chill values in the teens under partly to mostly cloudy skies and overnight lows in the teens with single digit wind chills.
The entire Tri-State is under either a Winter Weather Advisory or Winter Storm Warning until midnight. Most of the Tri-State is expected to pick up 3-5 inches of snow tonight, but some locally higher amounts are possible.
We may see a stray sprinkle or flurry this evening, but most of us will stay dry. However, temperatures will fall into the upper 20s overnight, so if the roads are still wet, patchy ice may form, especially on bridges and overpasses. Areas of patchy fog, frost, and freezing fog will also be possible
Showers will continue across the Tri-State through the night but will likely remain rain as temperatures will only fall into the mid 30s. Those temperatures will hold steady through much of the day on Sunday, only climbing a few degrees into the upper 30s.
We are on alert for snow accumulation tonight into tomorrow morning. The north-northwestern half of the Tri-State, including Evansville, is under a Winter Storm Warning from 6 p.m. tonight until noon Saturday. Most areas along and south of the Ohio River are under a Winter Weather Advisory.
I hope you enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend because we have rain and a cooldown on the way for the workweek. Tonight will be mostly cloudy with low temperatures in the mid 40s. We may get a few sprinkles tonight or tomorrow morning, but most of the rain will hold off until midday Monday.
Overnight, our skies will remain clear, and temperatures will fall into the mid 30s. Patchy fog may also develop late tonight into early Sunday morning.Much like today, Sunday will be unseasonably mild with high temperatures in the mid 50s, but it will be partly cloudy.
A few light scattered showers will still be possible overnight and into early Friday morning. Temperatures will stay fairly steady and unseasonably mild in the 50s for most of the night and will steadily fall through the 40s throughout the day on Friday as our skies begin to clear.
We are on Alert for gusty winds and a few non-severe thunderstorms Thursday. A Wind Advisory goes into effect for most of the Tri-State at 3 a.m. and continues until 3 a.m. Friday. Sustained winds of 20 to 25 mph with occasional gusts as high as 40 mph will be possible.
Black ice may cause bridges and overpasses to become slick early this morning, especially in areas that saw any sort of snow accumulation yesterday. Areas of patchy fog and frost are also possible, so just give yourself a little extra time and travel with caution this morning.
