Rainfall has varied from 1.30" in the southeast half of the area to NOTHING in the northwest.

Highs today ranged from 57-68 with the warmest weather in the northwest where the sun was out for a bit & it did not rain.

Any rain exits early Friday morning, then skies clear.  It will be a windy Friday with highs 62-66 & west-northwest to west winds 20-35 mph.

Winds will diminish & it will be a cold one Friday night with lows 34-37 in the northeastern areas to around 40 in Greater Lafayette & 38-43 elsewhere.  Some patchy frost is possible over Fulton, Miami, Cass, Pulaski & eastern Howard counties.

Some high clouds will increase north of a warm front beginning to move back northward.

Wave of some rain will pass Saturday midday-afternoon with even a couple of t'storms.  Best rainfall coverage will occur north of the warm front in the northern half in our area.  Some more scattered rainfall & t'storms will pass Saturday evening-night as the cold front passes..

Some isolated severe weather is possible just southwest of our area.  We will monitor for us.

Warm front will be laid up in the area with highs 51 north to 70 in our south & around 62 by late evening in Greater Lafayette.  Position of warm front is key to temperatures in the area & where greatest amount of rainfall occurs.

Note the heavy snowfall northwest of our area Saturday with several inches possible from Iowa & southeastern Minnesota to Wisconsin & far northern Illinois.

It will become windy Saturday late afternoon-evening as winds shift from east to southeast to south-southeast in Greater Lafayette, but they will remain east & east-northeasterly in the north.

Wind may then gust to 35 mph from the north Saturday night as temperatures fall to a cold 38-45.

After a cold, windy, gray start to Sunday, skies should turn partly cloudy with highs 55-62 with north winds decreasing to 10-20 mph.

It will be jacket weather, though on Sunday.

Front will move back north as a warm front & separate the viewing area into 40s & 50s north to 60s & 70s south Monday-Tuesday with a couple to few rounds of showers & t'storms.  Isolated severe risk may sneak in where temperatures reach the 60s & 70s.

Note how warm front literally separates us from summery 80s just south of our area.  Upper 80s are possible in Tennessee.  Note teh upper 40s at Chicago!

Warm front will meander in the vicinity Tuesday night-Wednesday with some showers & storms. 

Thinking that warm front will shift northward with time & tend to shut the rain off for just a bit as everyone warms up late week.

Some severe risk is possible & some areas may get to 80 with the highest dew points so far in 2019 (mid 60s).
