After seeing our temperatures dip to their lowest point since Thursday morning, it appears as though warmer and more spring-like conditions will return to Greater Lafayette before the end of the work week!
High pressure currently sitting atop the Great Lakes will continue to track eastward towards New England before spreading southward along the Eastern Seaboard over the next 36. With its passage to our east, our northerly winds will quickly shift southward and help drive temperature gradually higher over the next three days.
Tomorrow’s anticipated high of 40° sounds great, but our high of 48° on Valentine’s Day sounds even better; Thursday’s expected high of 54° has both of them beat! Unfortunately, the warmth comes with a catch. Gulf moisture being driven northward by the migrating high and extended across our region by an inbound low will bring rain chances to the viewing area as early as Wednesday night.
The rainfall will continue into Thursday and a passing cold front late that night and early Friday may even lead to the production of light snowfall along the front’s leading edge. As for now, our snow chances don’t appear to be significant in any way and likely won’t amount to anything other than some flurries.
