I know, I know, we had the feature forecast for Evansville last week. As it turned out, we wanted him to send us something this weekend, but he was so enthusiastic, he sent it to us a week ahead of time. Since this was a regularly scheduled forecast, we’re going to go ahead and forecast for Evansville one more time!
At 1054AM, CT, Evansville was reporting light snow associated with dense fog with a temperature near freezing. The area of snow was small and confined to the Evansville area. A broad area of low pressure lie over southern Ontario, sending waves of disturbances through the region, keeping some light snow running across the western and southern Great Lakes.
A broad jet trough was the culprit for this massive but weak disturbance. The length of this wave means that the system will be slow to depart, and the chance for flurries, as well as some blustery winds will be an issue for the next 36 hours or so. Trailing the broad low is a very weak ridge that will do little to clear things in southern Indiana, and clouds will persist through the weekend.

I have to say, I am fully in disagreement with the other forecasters on this one. Clouds and general debris have been very reluctant to clear west of Evansville, and there isn’t anything to lead me to believe that they will clear out even by mid day tomorrow. Radar shows some flurries over Evansville.
