Our far western & northwestern areas saw breaks in the clouds this evening for a bit of sun.

These pictures are from Tim Garbison near Veedersburg, in Fountain County.

These numbers are based on the latest forecast data as of Friday night at 10 p.m. with update completion at 10:30 p.m.

I will have another update Sunday around 4 p.m. 

After lows Friday night 35-40 (coldest in our northwestern counties) with some clearing of the clouds, mainly over the northwest half of the area, some showers will be possible in the far southeast & east.

Winds will be strong area-wide from the north at 20-40 mph.

This will result in wind chills of 21-31 degrees early Saturday morning.

Saturday will feature more sun as you move west & northwest in the area with more clouds in the east & southeast.  Some rain will be possible in the east & southeast, as well.

Temperatures will vary widely from sun & 61 at Kentland to clouds & sun & mid 50s Greater Lafayette to mid 40s to 50 with the clouds in the east & far southeast.

Winds will be strong from the north at 20-40 mph.

Winds will diminish & go light to calm Saturday night-early Sunday morning.  With skies going clear area-wide, lows will run 31-38 with potential of frost.

There is lower frost potential in the far west & northwest where warm air advection will begin to take place late.

Easter Sunday looks good with mostly sunny skies, followed by some increasing clouds late, south to south-southwest winds at 10-20 mph & highs 69-75.

A couple isolated showers/t'storms are possible on a windy, warm, partly to mostly cloudy Monday with highs 77-81.

After lows near 60-65 Monday night, highs Tuesday will run 68-76 with a couple rounds of showers & t'storms.

An isolated severe or two is possible.  At this point it appears that the main severe weather corridor will stay west & southwest of us.

We will still monitor.

It will dry out, cool, then warm up again.

April 26-May 3 looks WARM!  Temperatures will run above normal with 80s possible.

Rainfall looks normal for that period (around 1.50").

We still look warm & humid with some severe risk until we cool & dry in mid-May.  Late May still looks very warm, humid with some severe risk.

Rainfall will average near normal (May 7-31:  3.36").
