A One-Two Cold Front Punch of Arctic Air

Colder air is on the way!

Posted: Jan. 31, 2018 7:24 PM

Good Evening,

After what was a mild, but blustery day throughout Greater Lafayette, I’m tracking a one-two punch of cold fronts expected to drop temperatures across the region to their lowest point in over two weeks.

While tonight’s passing cold front is expected to move through quite harmlessly, generating little more than an isolated shower or flurry over these next few hours, the same cannot be said for tomorrow morning’s cold front. This secondary frontal boundary will pack an arctic punch as it traverses the region between 7:00 A.M. ET and 12:00 P.M. ET tomorrow.

We’ll reach tomorrow’s high temperature before the cold front passes to our south; which will be around 8:00 A.M. ET or 9:00 A.M. ET in Tippecanoe County on Thursday. We’re only expected to reach 33° in Lafayette before the front slides to our south.

After that point, temperatures will be on a gradual decline through the remainder of our Thursday and even into Friday morning. We’re expected to dip to 7° in Lafayette as the sun rises over the Wabash Valley come Friday morning. Wind chill values could fall as low as -11° at times that morning!
