Winter Hacks Ahead of Thursday’s Expected Snow In Evansville

While we haven’t had a White Christmas…or a cold Christmas for that matter, sub-freezing temperatures and snow will make their way into the Evansville area this week.

As you have noticed, the weather is starting to look a bit like winter outside. It’s only Monday and we’ve already seen temperatures below freezing in the Evansville area. Moreover, we will have several days where it is cold outside which makes it even cooler. The weather is expected to be colder on Thursday when it is said that the low will reach 7 degrees. Oh, and we’re also looking at the possibility of a snow buildup on Thursday as well…maybe up to six inches!

So, we know that snow and cold weather are coming. What can you do in advance to prepare for this? Let’s take a look at some winter weather hacks you can use before the weather we’ll see in the Evansville area this week.
