Some light cloud cover could linger into your lunch hour following the passage of a weak frontal system this morning. However, by this afternoon, higher pressure will disperse that upper level moisture and leave us with sunny skies. The additional sunshine will help boost temperatures an extra 5° today, as afternoon high temperatures are expected to peak near 54°. Overnight lows will fall to near freezing depths overnight just as our high pressure system pushes east of the viewing area. Once that high is centralized over Ohio, southerly winds will begin to usher in a far warmer air mass. While still below average, Friday's high of 64° will come as a major relief from the cooler temperatures of the previous few days. Afternoon highs will remain steady through Saturday as a low pressure system traverses the Ohio Valley. We'll see increased cloud cover and even some scattered rainfall that day before resuming our warm up for Sunday. The 70s will return for both Sunday and Monday with the mercury climbing to 73° and 78° respectively. The 80s will return on Tuesday and I'm not talking about A-ha's Reunion Tour. If we crack the 80° mark, which we should on Tuesday, it will be time we've done so in Lafayette since September 12th of last year.
