EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Our weather remains unseasonably chilly through the rest of the weekend. We will see a gradual warm-up through most of the workweek, but rain chances also return.

Sunday will be mostly sunny, and that sunshine along with lighter winds will help our temperatures climb just a few degrees higher than on Saturday. However, we will still be about 20° below average for this time of year with highs only reaching the upper 30s to around 40°.

Sunday night will be clear, calm and cold with low temperatures once again dipping into the lower 20s.

Our winds will then pick up from the south-southwest during the day Monday. That flow of warmer air from the south will continue for most of the week. As a result, our high temperatures will climb into the low 50s Monday, mid to upper 50s Tuesday, low 60s Wednesday, and low 70s Thursday! This warm-up is perfectly timed because Monday is also the spring equinox!

Monday will be sunny, but clouds increase throughout the day Tuesday, and rain chances return Tuesday evening. A few showers will then remain possible on and off through Wednesday and Thursday as a low pressure system passes to our north, although neither day will be a total washout.

Our best chance of rain this week will likely be Thursday night into the day on Friday as a cold front passes through our region. Heavy rain and thunderstorms may also be possible Thursday night into Friday, but it is still a little too early to talk details.

Behind that cold front, we will see a slight dip in our temperatures with highs returning to the low 60s for the end of the week.
