High temperatures today reached 79-82.
The record high was tied at Greater Lafayette with 82. The record is 82 set in 2010.
A few showers & t'storms are possible tomorrow morning, then perhaps a few bubbling up in the afternoon. Coverage should average around 30%.
Highs will run 77-82 with south winds 20-35 mph & partly to mostly cloudy skies generally.
I am forecasting 80 tomorrow. The record high for the date is 82 set in 2020.
What is left of severe weather to our west will come through our area late, late Wednesday night-Thursday AM to even midday (lows Wednesday morning near 60 to the lower 60s).
If there is an isolated severe storm, it would tend to occur in the southwestern part of the viewing area.
The scattered showers & storms will tend to depart in the mid to late afternoon with dry slot coming in. Skies should turn to mostly sunny-partly cloudy (cumulus clouds). Cloud will tend to increase later in the day.
Highs of 67-74 are expected with south-southwest winds 20-40 mph. Lows Thursday night should run in the 50s with a few isolated showers possible.
Note the severe weather northwest, west & southwest of our area Wednesday.
A good deal of SLIGHT RISK is up from Minnesota to Mississippi & Louisiana. MARGINAL RISK will occur as far north as northern Wisconsin. SPC has the MARGINAL RISK as far east as Illinois right now.
There are the leftovers of the severe weather moving into our area. Again, southwestern part of viewing area would be the place to watch for an isolated renegade severe storm if one can pulse up.
Note how much of the shower & storm action re-develops northeast, east & southeast of our area.
A corridor of MARGINAL RISK for severe may certainly reside from Michigan to Ohio & central to eastern Kentucky.
Another area of severe (most likely SLIGHT RISK) would be Louisiana to Mississippi & Alabama.
As for Friday, it looks partly to mostly cloudy, then partly cloudy. A few isolated showers are possible in the northwest Friday morning.
Winds will be strong from the southwest at 20-35 mph.
Highs of 67-74 are expected.
Lows near 50 to the 50s are expected Friday night.
Rainfall is likely with some storms Saturday-Saturday night.
Winds will be strong from the southeast Saturday at 20-30 mph, then will go southwest to west to northwest for Saturday night-Sunday at 25-43 mph.
Locally-heavy rainfall is possible in the viewing area.
In fact, 1-3" (isolated +3" amounts possible) is likely Wednesday night-Saturday night, but much of that will fall Saturday PM-night.
This, with highs of 64-71 Saturday & 40s Saturday night.
Severe weather is possible from southwestern Indiana to Texas to Alabama Friday night-Saturday night. We will see if any isolated severe storms can make it in here.
It could be quite a violent outbreak of tornadoes from eastern Texas to southern Arkansas, Louisiana to southern Mississippi & southwestern Alabama.
It should wane be pretty quickly northeast or east of that corridor in the South.
Parameters are showing solid ENHANCED RISK for severe in that zone with even a pocket of MODERATE RISK parameters for a time.
Sunday looks windy with mostly cloudy to cloudy skies early becoming partly cloudy & eventually mostly sunny by evening.
Northwest to west winds will run 20-30 mph. Highs of 66-71 are expected with lows in the 41-46 range Sunday night.
After temperatures to 91 this week in the Dakotas, it may snow by early next week.
Here, looks like increasing clouds Monday with highs 69-76 with southeast wind 5-10 mph.
Showers & storms are likely Monday night, followed by a dry slot with period of mostly sunny skies possible & southwest wind Tuesday 15-30 mph. Lows will run in the 50s.
Highs of 66-73 are expected.
However, we will turn showery & colder late Tuesday evening-night with cloudy skies & lows 38-44. Northwest winds of 20-30 mph will make it feel more like 29-35.
Next Wednesday through Sunday is that frequently cooler weather pattern for mid-April with an Alberta clipper passing through during that April 14-22 time period.
