With clouds & some sun today, highs ran 73-80 with lowering humidity from north to south on northeast winds.

There were a few isolated light showers & sprinkles this afternoon-evening.  As of now, there a still a few isolated showers in Fountain & Montgomery counties.

Lows tonight will vary from near 50 in the far north to 60 in the far south with around 58 at Greater Lafayette.

As for Saturday, it looks like varying amounts of clouds & sun with potential of a couple isolated showers (20%).  The air will be too dry to support much more than that.

Winds will be east-northeast at 8-15 mph with highs largely in the 70s. 

The front will be south of us tomorrow, so all the humidity, warmer weather & any storm risk will stay down that way.

As for Sunday, front will begin to migrate back northward as a warm front.  This will bring higher humidity (dew points 65-70) as the day goes on & the risk of a few spotty t'showers.

Highs will tun 78-85 after 50s to the 60s in the morning.

Labor Day looks mostly sunny & very warm with rather humid conditions (dew points 64-68).  Highs of 83-88 are likely after near 65 in the morning.  Winds look light.

Much of Tuesday looks mostly sunny with windy conditions & highs 87-90 with southwest winds 20-30 mph after near 66 in the morning.

Dew points look to climb to 66-70, leading to heat indices of 90-93.

It appears that a long-lived, organized, severe MCS with a squall line will rake areas from the Dakotas to Minnesota & Iowa to northwestern Illinois & Wisconsin late Monday, Monday night & into Tuesday.

We may see the far tail end of storms along the cold front late Tuesday evening-night as just a highly-broken line of storms.

It appears that the more widespread storms & better severe risk will reside north & northeast of our area, though I wouldn't rule out a MARGINAL RISK for part of the viewing area.  Storm coverage only looks like up to 40%, though, at the moment.

Wednesday-Saturday look cooler with highs in the 70s with lows in the 40s & 50s.

A few showers next Sunday may give way to even cooler weather with highs 67-73 & lows 42-47 around September 9-11.

After a stretch of cool, rather dry weather, mid-September still looks overall warmer than normal with periodic showers/storms.

The below normal temperatures (note the extreme heat in British Columbia to Washington, Oregon & Idaho & part of the West.

The cool, quite dry stretch will occur as Canadian surface highs dominate, bringing early frosts to the Dakotas & parts of Minnesota.

By September 13, note the anomalies..........cool anomalies in process of eroding with heat working as far east as the Dakotas & Nebraska (10-12 degrees above normal).

Mid-September to as late as September 20 looks warmer than normal.

It also looks wetter than normal:

Looks cooler & drier to end September & go into early October:
