Few isolated showers & t'showers are possible far north today-tonight.  There will be more clouds north, more sun as you move southward from there in the viewing area today.

Highs will run 68-76 with south-southwest winds 20-33 mph.

A few showers & t'showers are possible tomorrow morning-midday Wednesday followed by clearing.

Highs will run 71-76 with south-southwest winds 20-30 mph (after lows 54-58).

A large bow of t'storms will likely pass Wednesday morning, followed by rain & t'storms off & on the rest of the day.

Main MARGINAL RISK of severe weather period is in the morning.  The widespread nature of the clouds & rain may prevent a substantial amount of destablization for renewed isolated severe risk in the afternoon.

We will still monitor.

Isolated severe gusts are possible in the morning.

There is the risk of locally-heavy rainfall Thursday.

Highs of 64-69 (67 Greater Lafayette) are likely after early, pre-t'storm morning lows of 62-66 (before we "rain cool" for a bit to 59-63 with the t'storms).

Data does suggest some organization of a line/band of t'storms along the cold front in the late afternoon-evening, but again, considerable cloudiness & rain may limit any overall PM severe risk.

As said, we will still monitor.

1-3" rainfall is likely by Thursday night.  This will lead to ponding & some flash flooding, as well as rises in creeks, streams & rivers to at/above flood stage.

Gray, cool, breezy to windy, showery weather is likely Friday to Friday night.  Highs will only run in the 40s to lower 50s Friday with 40-43 Friday night.

An additional 0.25-0.50" rainfall is likely Friday-Friday night.

After a few showers early Saturday, it should clear with highs 55-62 with p.m. sunshine.

30s are likely Saturday night with clear skies & patchy fog with patchy frost, followed by a beautiful Easter Sunday!

Highs will run 66-73 from east to west with lots of sunshine & a south-southwest wind at 10-20 mph.

Monday looks partly cloudy, windy & warm with 77-81 with south-southwest winds 20-35 mph.

Showers & t'storms are likely late Monday night-Tuesday morning.  MARGINAL RISK of severe weather parameters are in places (SLIGHT RISK parameters west of us).

Tuesday should see highs in the 60s & 70s, followed by 60s Wednesday as we dry out.  70s should return at the end of next week.
