Highs today ran 88-97, coolest behind the two outflow boundaries & where there was some debri cloudiness from the two complexes of storms lastnight to today.
Heat indices peaked at 91-105, lowest where air mixed behind outflow boundaries in our far northern & northeastern areas.
The 95.0 at the Purdue Airport was the 7th day of 2020 at 95. We reached 95.5 at WLFI for the 6th day with at least 95.
This May-August period continues to overall be the hottest & driest since 2012.
However, the isolated storm in Tippecanoe County today dumped 1.60" rainfall with marble hail near Stockwell.
We are strongly capped again after two ouflow boundaries briefly triggered a few isolated storms for only around 1 hour this late afternoon. This boundary with wind shift & local shear along it produced a brief landspout funnel that was seen by many on the southeast & southe sides of Lafayette.
Tonight, some fog may occur in those isolated areas that received a storm today.
If you did get rainfall today, you were very lucky! It was very isolated!
Otherwise, it looks mostly clear & hazy with lows 66-74.
Highs tomorrow should reach 92-98 with heat indices 99-108 with hazy sunshine.
It appears the outflow boundaries from storm complexes will be well east & northeast of the area from central Ohio to Michigan Wednesday.
Main corridor of severe weather risk & best storm coverage Thursday to Thursday night will run from North Dakota & Minnesota to northeast Ohio.
Here, a few storms are possible Thursday with 30% coverage.
Given the unstable airmass & still sun out ahead of the thicker high to mid overcast from Laura & with us being on the southern edge of decent flow aloft, an isolated severe storm or two is possible.
Highs of 90-96 are likely after morning lows of 70-75. Heat indices during the day Thursday should peak at 99-108.
Showers/storms are likely Friday-Friday night as remnants of Laura/Marco pass just south of the area & the cold front & upper trough swings through.
Given the warm, tropical, unstable airmass, heating & modest flow aloft, some organized, locally severe storms are possible.
Multiple waves of showers/storms are possible early to mid next week with the risk of some severe weather, mainly Wednesday or Thursday as we warm & turn muggy again after a bit cooler, less humid weekend.
