Cold now, but warm-up in sight
The Tri-State can expect a break from the frigid temperatures later this week.
The threat of more snow is gone for now, after an additional 2-to-3 inches fell on the Evansville area Monday.
The new layer of snow was followed by single digit temperatures and sub-zero wind chills.
Experts warn that such wind chills can cause frost bite to exposed skin within 30 minutes.
The snow and frigid air prompted widespread school closings, but a warm-up and melt-down are in sight.
Forecasters predict the wind will shift to the south-southwest by Thursday, raising temperatures into the 30’s.
By Saturday, the mercury is forecast to rise to 50 degrees, with sunshine.
The warm-up should melt much of the snow, and the next chance for precipitation is rain – not snow -- on Sunday.
