Another weak frontal system will pass through the Midwest later today. While initial forecasts had us receiving some isolated rainfall today, the latest models keep things dry across west central Indiana through the remainder of the current work week. Afternoon highs today will be around 6° cooler than yesterday's as we hit 82° in Lafayette. Higher pressure will begin to filter into the Midwest by this evening effectively clearing out any remaining upper level moisture. We're looking at a sunny and cooler Wednesday ahead with afternoon high temperatures topping out right around 79°, but as that high kicks eastward, our northerly winds will shift. Afternoon highs will bounce back into the low 80s by Thursday and some of us may near 90° on Friday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will arrive on Saturday along with some warmer temperatures. We'll hit 89° that day here in the Star City before cracking 90° on Sunday with more chances for scattered rainfall.
