After lows this morning of 34-43, we are 43-51 as of 12 p.m. with strong, gusty northwest winds.  Gusts have reached as high as 42 mph in the viewing area. 

The day will be mostly sunny to sunny with continued strong winds & highs 50-58 (warmest southwest, coolest north & northeast).  Peak gusts of 35-45 mph are likely.

Dew points will be very low.  They may drop to the 8-15 range, leading to increased brush, field & forest fire danger.

No burning should be done through this afternoon to evening, as fire could spread out of control on dormant, cured grasses & dry leaf litter.

Lows tonight should drop to 32-38 (coldest in far east & southeast) as wind diminish & some patchy cloudiness develops.

Tomorrow looks much warmer with strong south-southwest winds to 40 mph as warm front shoots northward.

Highs of 67-75 are likely.

We will be sandwiched between two areas of rainfall & severe weather late tomorrow afternoon-evening.

T'Storms will develop from Nebraska to Iowa to northern Illinois & far northern Indiana along front moving back southward.

Some isolated severe storms are likely with these.

Then, heavy rainfall & severe storms will occurr Oklahoma, Kansas to Texas to Arkansas to far southern Missouri.

Weakening showers & t'storms should come in from the northwest tomorrow night with lows in the 50s to around 60.

Those showers & t'storms will fade, then some rain may come up from the south from surface low south of our area for part of Thursday.

However, heaviest rainfall should definitely stay south of our area.

Highs Thursday should run in the 60s then fall into the 50s as wind turns to the east & northeast & north-northeast

TOTAL RAINFALL OF 0.10-0.60" IS LIKELY Wednesday evening/night to Thursday.

Up to 2" of rain will far south of our area in southern Indiana.

Another system will come in late Friday to Saturday with rainfall & some t'storms.

Severe weather risk will creep northward to southern Illinois & Indiana by Friday evening.

Potential is there for brief MARGINAL RISK to get to part of the area, but higher risk (SLIGHT RISK) will be south of us.

We will continue to monitor.  This could change, depending on exact storm track.

Highs in the 60s to 70 are likely Friday.

Saturday's highs in the 60s should be early in the morning, then fall into the 50s.

Sunday looks windy & chilly with highs 48-56 with a few isolated showers with northwest winds gusting to 45 mph.

Some periods of showers & t'storms are possible in the April 28-May 5 time frame.
