Yesterday's official high of 72 was the third coolest August 1 high on record since 1879 for Greater Lafayette.  It was the coolest high for August 1 since 1979 when the high was 71.  The coolest August 1 high occurred in 1965 with 68.

The cool weather on August 1, 1979 just followed the flooding rainfall from the remnants of Tropical Storm Claudette.  The flooding was the worst in the southern part of the state with damage in the millions of dollars.

On August 1, 1965 the morning low was 54 & it was a cloudy day with a trace of rainfall following cold front passage.  However, by August 5, the high reached 93 with a morning low of 66!

____________________________________________________________________________

Rainfall totals from Friday night to Sunday morning vary from 0.30-2" over the viewing area.  Heaviest totals were in our far western & southwestern areas.  Lightest amounts were in the eastern areas.

Today, with a mix of clouds & sun, a few showers & t'showers are possible (35%) as these cumulus towers bubble up.  Highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s are likely.

Scattered showers & a few isolated storms are possible tomorrow with 50% coverage & clouds mixed with some sun.

Highs will run in the 70s to around 80.

Tuesday looks cool with clouds & sun with a couple isolated showers & highs only near 77 (cool feel to the morning with north-northeast wind at 13-22 mph with temperature around 60), followed by clearing, some fog & near 53 Tuesday night.  Highs Wednesday should run near 80 with 50s & some fog Wednesday night.

Hotter & muggy weather returns at the end of next week to next weekend.

Multiple rounds of storms are possible next weekend to early next week as clusters & complexes of storms occur on the periphery of the heat.

It looks like some MARGINAL to SLIGHT RISK at times late Saturday through Tuesday of next week.

Highs will eventually warm to the 88-93 range with heat indices 96-102.

There are still signs of mid-August cool-down, then a couple rounds of pretty intense heat in late August & early September. 

Spurt of cool weather should arrive in mid-September with overnight lows in the 40s.

Late August to mid-September currently shows a tendency for normal to slightly-below normal rainfall.
