Nice weather ahead.

Heavy, tropical rainfall occurred yesterday & lastnight, resulting in some of the heaviest, most widespread rainfall in the viewing area since June:

I measured 1.90" at the WLFI ob site for August 26, making it the wettest day since October 10, 2018.

Up to 2.50" was measured in the city of West Lafayette.  Up to 3.30" fell in Warren, Fountain & Montgomery counties with 2" totals as far north as western Carroll & White counties.

Overall, totals varied from 0.50-3.30", however.

In addition to the heavy rainfall, multiple storms in the evening hours & early overnight exhibited low-level rotation of varying degrees.

One of these storms produced a brief evening tornado west-northwest of Kentland.

Brett at Live Storm Media:

Shortwave & weak cold front will pivot through this evening-part of tonight.

This may spawn a few isolated showers/t'showers.

Lows by early Wednesday morning will run 56-61.

Wednesday looks less humid with breezy to windy conditions.  West-southwest winds will run 15-30 mph with mostly sunny skies over the entire area giving way to partly cloudy skies in the north & northeast as a weak shortwave skims by.

Highs will run 76-80 with lows Wednesday night at 53-56.

Thursday looks warmer as shortwave & cold front approach.  Mostly sunny skies will give way to partly cloudy skies in the PM.

Humidity will begin to rise in the PM with dew points reaching 62-65.  Highs will run 80-85 with southwest winds 15-25 mph.

A highly-broken line or two of showers & storms may form to our north in the evening & then move through late evening to overnight.

Lows Thursday night will run in the 60s.

A few showers & storms are possible Friday AM.

Friday's highs should run 82-87 with dew points of 64-67.

A few more are possible Saturday PM with lots of clouds & highs only 72-78 with a north-northeast wind at 15-25 mph.

Sunday & Monday look good with sunshine & highs 75-80 & lows 49-54 with low humidity.

It will heat up pretty quickly next week with 81-86 Tuesday & 85-90.

A broken line of showers/storms is possible along a cold front Tuesday night, followed by much cooler weather Wednesday-Saturday of next week. 

Highs will run 69-76 with lows 44-49 as strong, sprawling Canadian surface high slowly migrates over the area.

Note the projected track of Dorian in Florida & then right through the Carolinas before being pulled out back into the Atlantic.  Florida landfall is suggested for Florida's East-Central Atlantic coast on Sunday morning.  NHC has it as a tropical storm at landfall.

A potential tropical system may also occur & make a landfall in far south Texas or northern Mexico.

Temperatures overall looks cooler than normal for early September.

Early September will trend drier than normal.

Note the pattern change mid-September with big upper low over southern Canada & the wave of showers & storms developing from Texas to our area.

This will be a plume of tropical moisture from the Pacific & Gulf.

Given the strong jet strema punching into the Plains & Midwest south of that upper low, some severe weather episodes will develop.  We may have one or two even here.

Highs will warm back to the 80s with dew points of 68-72 & overnights warm at 67-70.  Winds look strong from the south & southwest.

Warmer than normal mean temperatures are forecast for this period.

Rainfall looks above normal during this time.
