Evansville Weather & Climate

The Southwest Corner of Indiana has an invigorating climate with strongly marked seasons. Winters are cold, sometimes bitterly so. Oppressive humidity and high temperatures arrive in summer. Autumn is often the most pleasant time of the year with lower humidity than the other seasons and mostly sunny skies. The Gulf of Mexico is a major player in Indiana's climate. Southerly winds from the Gulf transport warm, moisture laden air into the state. The warm moist air collides with continental polar air by the jet stream from Canada. Winter may be unusually cold or a summer cool if the influence of polar air is persistent. Similarly, a summer may be unusually warm or a winter mild if air of tropical origin predominates.
