We could see some more scattered rainfall throughout the day today as a frontal boundary stalls out over the Indiana Michigan boarder. With that front remaining to our north, winds will continue to gust as high as 25 mph from the south driving temperatures back into the mid 70s. Expect an afternoon high temperature in Lafayette of 75°. We could even catch some more scattered rain overnight as temperatures dip near 60°. (A degree lower than today's average high temperature) Though the majority of that precipitation will remain well to our north today, a more sustained and heavy rainfall will arrive for your Wednesday. We'll see more scattered showers and thunderstorms for both Wednesday morning and afternoon before the low pressure system driving the rainfall tracks just to the north of us. With a juicy atmosphere primed for inclement weather, all we'll need by Wednesday afternoon will be a trigger; that trigger will come in the form of a cold front. With both an abundance of convective activity at the surface and a strong upper jet aloft, we can expect large thunderstorms to develop ahead of this front. Some of these storms could produce wind gusts in excess of 60 mph as well as quarter-sized hail. On top of that, between today and tomorrow, some parts of the viewing area may receive as much as an additional 1" – 2" of rainfall. After another day in the mid 70s, the passing cold front will drop afternoon highs into the low 50s by Thursday. Light and scattered rainfall may linger into the afternoon, but we'll begin to dry out by that evening.
