Henderson, KY (WEHT) – Snowfall lovers rejoice! A weather system moving in with moisture and arctic air will bring snow to parts of the Tri-State starting Thursday morning. About 1-3″ will fall across much of the viewing area (heaviest southeast/lightest northwest). The snow will be a dry powder that will stick right away, but also blow around quite a bit. The significant snow should hold off until just after the morning commute with the heaviest likely during the late morning/early afternoon. And though the snow will be ending before the afternoon commute, it will be a slow drive home. Keep a brush or broom handy to sweep the dry snow off of your vehicles.

So how much are we expecting with this system Thursday? Below is the latest outlook from Your Weather Authority. We have spent time looking at many models to come up with our own handmade forecast.

Does it seem like it has been awhile since we have seen some of the white flakes? Actually, it wasn’t too long ago! While it wasn’t a lot, Evansville received a record amount of snow April 20, 2021, with 1.3″ of snow. Sadly, it didn’t stick around very long as the high the next day in Evansville was 53 degrees and just a few days later, in the 60s!

We have to look back to February 2021 for the good stuff. During the month, Evansville recorded seven total days where a trace of snow fell, and five of those were in a row. However, by the the 15th, mother nature delivered, and dropped 3.5″ of snow in Evansville.

Most, if not all, of what does stick from this event will be gone by Saturday night and very likely on Sunday. Highs over the weekend will be in the 40s with rain developing later Saturday, increasing Saturday night, then ending Sunday morning.
