High pressure currently residing over the Great Lakes will continue its eastward track throughout the day. After starting out our day under clear skies, the departure of this high will allow more upper level moisture to move into the region. However, the slowly increasing cloud cover will not prevent temperatures from warming up. Afternoon highs will jump to 77° here in Lafayette, while some parts of the viewing area may crack 80° later today. With our current high pressure system moving towards the east coast, we can now shift our attention to our next weather system, a low centralized over North Dakota. This low will slowly sag southeastward over the next 36 hours arriving in Central Indiana in late Wednesday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue throughout much of Thursday and possible into Friday morning. A brief dry period dominated by another high will kick off Friday afternoon and last through Sunday morning as another cold front pushes into the Midwest.
