EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - We picked widespread rain totals of 1.5 to 3 inches of rain across the Tri-State from Friday night through Saturday, and portions of western Kentucky saw upwards of 4 inches of rain. The severe weather stayed just south of us this time around, but possible tornado damage has been reported in Hopkinsville and Bowling Green, KY.

Sunday will be cloudy and mostly dry, although an isolated rain or snow shower cannot be ruled out. Our temperatures will hang out in the low to mid 30s throughout most of the day on Sunday, but the wind chills will be in the low to mid 20s. Isolated slick spots may develop, especially on bridges and overpasses as any water left on the roads could freeze.

The clouds will clear Sunday night as our temperatures fall into the upper teens to low 20s. The wind chills will dip into the low to mid teens. Any kids heading back to school Monday morning will need to be bundled up at the bus stop!

Monday will be mostly sunny but still chilly with highs in the mid 30s. Our wind direction will change Monday night, and warmer air will flow in from the south on Tuesday, pushing our temperatures into the mid to upper 40s under mostly sunny skies.

That warm-up won’t last long. Another cold front will move through our region Wednesday. We will still make it into the low 40s Wednesday, but we will top out in the mid 20s Thursday and Friday as colder air once again takes over. Some snow showers may wrap around on the backside of that system Thursday afternoon and evening. Some minor snow accumulation of less than one inch may be possible, but it is still too early to talk specifics.
