EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Saturday will be partly cloudy and chilly with highs in the mid 40s. There may be a brief window of clear skies Saturday evening, then we will see increasing clouds Saturday night with a slight chance of showers after midnight and into Sunday morning as a warm front moves through our region. Overnight lows will be in the low to mid 30s.

The passage of that warm front will push our highs into the low 50s Sunday, but a cold front will quickly follow Sunday afternoon and evening, pushing the rain off to our east and ushering cooler air from the northwest. Sunday will also be partly cloudy and breezy with winds from the west-southwest at around 8 to 18 mph and gusts as high as 26 mph.

Mostly sunny skies return Monday and Tuesday. Despite the sunshine, Monday will be chilly with morning lows in the upper 20s and afternoon highs in the upper 40s. Our wind direction will shift on Tuesday, bringing warmer air up from the south, so our morning lows will be in the upper 30s with afternoon highs in the low to mid 60s.

As that flow of warm air continues, Wednesday will be the warmest day of the week with highs in the mid to upper 60s, which is about 10° warmer than average for this time of year. However, we will also see increasing clouds Wednesday, and rain returns to the forecast as another cold front approaches our region.

That rain will continue through Wednesday night and into early Thursday morning. As the rain moves out, cooler air will move in, and our highs will drop back into the low 50s with lows in the 30s for the end of the workweek.
