As dark & as dismal it is outside, it is hard to believe, the sun is coming out around Danville, Illinois.  In that sunshine, notice the t'storms in eastern & central Illinois (bumpy nature to the clouds).  More scattered t'storms will form back toward St. Louis in a pivoting band that will rotate northeastward into our area this evening.

The main area of solid rainfall with isolated thunder is now well out of our area & rainfall now is spotty.

Temperatures vary from 41 at Winamac to 55 at Covington, while it is 49-52 across Greater Lafayette.  Highs of 54-62 are expected across the area by later this evening.

Where the sun is coming out, there is a Slight Risk of severe.  We remain in the Marginal Risk for afternoon-evening.

Here is what to expect now-5 a.m.  Note a few spotty showers & t'showers, then an arc of some showers & t'storms.  That arc will tend to pass in the 5:30-9 p.m. time frame over the area.

Model data does bring some of that clearing in this afternoon-evening with some heating.  The cold air aloft, shear & impressive dynamics support the Marginal Risk for the area.  An isolated severe storm or two is possible.  If it would happen to stay cloudy, this risk would be less.  Certainly, however, the betters severe risk is just west & southwest of our area.

Tomorrow shows rather dry start, then some showers/t'showers followed by showery weather.  Then, snow showers will be with us tomorrow night-Monday!  The heaviest snow showers look to pass Monday morning.

Accumulations of 1" or less are likely.  Some lake enhancement may result in 1-2" totals in Newton County.

It still ooks pretty breezy to windy now-Monday.

Additional snow showers are possible Monday night-Tuesday with 1" or less of accumulation.

Snow showers are possible Thursday night-Friday.

Snow &/or mix is possible next weekend.

Arctic air will become entrenched over the area with highs dominated by 20s & lows in the teens to 20.
