(KFVS) - It’ll be a clear and chilly, but quiet evening.

Brian Alworth says a system from the northwest will drop quickly through the region overnight with clouds and maybe some light snow.

As with most of these systems, the best chance of precipitation will be to the northeast, closer to Evansville, Indiana.

However, a few light snow patches look possible overnight and could bring a dusting to southeast Illinois, especially along I-64. There will probably just be trace amounts elsewhere.

Monday morning looks mainly cloudy, but the clouds will gradually move out from west to east by afternoon.

The week ahead starts out cool, but ends up cold.

Another shot of arctic air will blow in behind a cold front by late Wednesday, and the second half of the week will be quite cold.

The front itself looks pretty weak, but may bring a little light rain and snow on Wednesday.

Highs on Thursday and Friday will likely stay below freezing over most of the area, with lows mainly in the teens.

Wind chills on Thursday will be pretty tough.

Next weekend is looking cool, but mainly dry.
