It has been a foggy and cloudy start to the work week. However, the system that brought the area showers yesterday has moved out and now higher pressure is going to travel over the state for the next couple of days. Greater Lafayette is going to have a break from showers until Wednesday morning.
Light fog will linger through the morning commute under mainly cloudy skies. Cloud cover is going to break apart by midday and there is going to be more sunshine for the afternoon. Highs will climb into the mid-40s, which is warmer than the temperatures from this past weekend.
Mostly clear skies will persist this evening with more cloud cover moving into the area after midnight EST. Skies will turn partly cloudy tonight as lows drop back into the lower 30s.
The high pressure system will provide Lafayette with dry weather conditions for Tuesday. Temperatures will also gradually rise through the middle part of the work week. Highs in the 50s return on Wednesday along with scattered rainfall. There is going to be a slight dip in temperatures on Thursday before rising back into the mid-50s.
Friday is going to be the warmest day of the week and temperatures at that point will be trending slightly above average for mid-November. The average high for Lafayette right now is 53°. However, the above normal temperatures will not stick around for long. Another cold front will pass over the state this weekend and temperatures will quickly fall back into the upper 30s by Sunday.
