Brief landspout occurred yesterday on outflow boundary (& with quick drop in surface pressure as isolated storm popped through the cap.....so it was like a very small-scale mini low & frontal zone) near developing t'storm on the southeast side of Lafayette.  Dust was pulled & swirled about & some of the ends of corn leaves shredded for less than one minute.  These leaf shreds were encountered by one of our spotters nearby.  He was outside & no rain was falling & no wind was occurring as some shreads of corn leaves fell down from the sky.  No damage occurred with this landspout, as is typical.  They are short in duration & weak.

This occurred east of the Veteran's Memorial Parkway Wal-Mart from what I have ascertained from spotters & picture.

Highs today reached (map up later this evening) after lows of 66-73 this morning.

MARGINAL RISK of severe weather is up (per SPC) along & north of a near Roselawn to Logansport to Amboy line & northward.

This may be expanded southward in the next Day 2 SPC update tonight.

There is a SLIGHT RISK for severe weather Friday & Friday night with numerous showers & storms expected from clusters to lines & bands to a couple isolated supercells.  Front & trough will interact with band swinging around Tropical Depression Laura (as the center tracks over Kentucky).  Wind fields & shear supports potential of a brief isolated tornado or two.

Locally-heavy rainfall is likely.

The weekend looks good with sunshine & some clouds with highs 78-85 & lows 53-59 with lower humidity.

Some periods of showers & storms return next week.  Some severe weather is possible, but exact timing & frequency is in question currently.
