Cooler yet Tuesday before more rain comes (3/6/23)

No one within the FOX 23 coverage area managed to break a record high despite the warm temperatures seen by Monday afternoon. But Evansville, just outside of our area in southern Indiana, did manage to break a record high today, reaching 77° and matching a lot of other current records across the region for this date. The old record was 76° for March 6th, set back in 1994.

A cold front will pass through this evening, this time with no moisture. Its purpose this time around will be to bring colder air and highs dropping to the 50s: closer to where we should be at this time. Then, as you can maybe gather from the next drop to Wednesday, another system arrives.

This version of Stormcast (below) shows the system making its way to us in the early morning hours on Wednesday. Rain, or flurries, to remain light this first time around.
