Good Evening,

While it wasn’t a particularly nice day across Greater Lafayette, the forecast ahead looks like it will be far more forgiving. Today’s high temperature of 37° was recorded shortly after midnight early this morning; since then the mercury has been on a gradual decline.


Fortunately for us, our current cooling trend will begin to reverse itself upon the arrival of a core of high pressure currently situated over the Rockies and Great Plains. After migrating southeastward towards the Gulf, the high will make a counterclockwise turn towards the eastern seaboard Wednesday evening. This shift will return a southerly wind flow to Central Indiana.

After only peaking 34° tomorrow afternoon, the addition of the aforementioned southerly winds will drive temperatures gradually high during the ensuing two or three days! From the mid-30s, we’ll first make a stop in the mid-40s Thursday before making for the low-50s on Friday afternoon!

Friday’s anticipated high temperature of 52° will be our warmest in Lafayette since this past Monday’s high of 54°. A cold front passing through the region Saturday evening will bring a swift end to our abnormally warm temperatures. Before you know it, we’ll all be back in the upper 30s for the end of the weekend.
