This morning, we were tracking a few flurries and wintry mix as lows dropped into the mid-30s. The initial wave of precipitation has moved out and there are no showers on Precision 18 Radar this midday. The area will remain dry through the early afternoon, but our next round of rainfall will arrive at the start of the evening commute. Temperatures will gradually rise throughout the day and reach the upper 40s by 4 p.m. EDT.
Precision Futurecast shows rain showers moving into our southern counties between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. EDT. Be prepared for scattered rainfall for the rest of the evening and tonight. The next wave of rainfall is associated with a warm front and it will allow temperatures to increase overnight. Greater Lafayette will be in the upper 50s by tomorrow morning’s commute.
Scattered rain will linger into Thursday’s forecast. Even though it will be a dreary day, temperatures will warm up nicely with forecast highs in the mid-60s! The mild weather conditions will be short-lived because a cold front will pass over Indiana Thursday night and temperatures will fall behind the boundary.
A stray shower will be possible Friday morning. After the rain completely moves out, cloud cover will begin to break up and Greater Lafayette will have a break from rainfall until the weekend.
