Rain likely Sunday and Thanksgiving Day
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Rain and cooler weather are on the way as we head into Thanksgiving week!
Scattered showers are likely Sunday, mainly during the first half of the day, then the rain will side to the southeast as we head into the afternoon before tapering off completely by Sunday evening. Temperatures will top out in the low 50s under mostly cloudy skies.
As the cold front bringing us that rain pushes off to the east Sunday evening, our skies will clear and our wind direction will change, coming from the north-northwest at around 6 to 12 mph with gusts up to 24 mph. That flow of cold air will drop our temperatures in the upper 20s to low 30s by the end of Sunday night.
We will see a mix of sun and clouds Monday with high temperatures in the low 40s and overnight lows in the low to mid 20s! After that cold start, we will climb into the mid to upper 40s Tuesday afternoon thanks to plenty of sunshine.
By Wednesday, our wind direction will shift again, pushing warmer air in from the south and sending our temperatures into the mid 50s, but the clouds will also increase Wednesday as another cold front approaches our region.
Scattered rain is likely, starting late Wednesday night and continuing on and off throughout most of Thanksgiving Day as that cold front swings through the Tri-State. That rain will clear in time for Black Friday shopping, but it will leave behind another temperature drop. Highs will be in the upper 40s to around 50° on Thursday, but we will drop into the upper 20s by Friday morning with highs in the low to mid 40s Friday afternoon under mostly sunny skies.
