Here is your latest weather forecast update on rain, wind, a few storms & cooler weather.

Today's highs reached 48-63.  The record for Greater Lafayette was 67 set in 1971.  Our high was officially 63.  This nearly 25 degrees above normal!

A mild spring-like rain will increase tonight & become steady & widespread.  Lasting through Saturday morning (with a few storms possible) it will decrease to some scattered showers & a few storms amidst pockets of developing sunshine by midday.

In this sunshine, a broken line of showers & storms may develop & pivot through along the cold front.

There is the risk of a random, isolated severe storm 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Behind all of this, low gray clouds will roll in with a few showers & drizzle around.  This will change to a few snow showers & flurries tomorrow night to early Sunday morning.

Temperatures will fall from highs 55-61 to 38-45 by 6 p.m.

South to southwest, then west to northwest winds may gust 30-40 mph with a couple isolated gusts of 45 mph possible.

If you are prone to aches & pains from low pressure, be aware of the center of the deepening low passing from St. Louis to Morocco.  This means low surface air pressure here.

0.75-1.25" (few isolated +1.25" amounts possible) rainfall is likely area-wide, the only real rainfall we have seen in nearly 3 weeks.

This is welcome rainfall.  Part of the viewing area is in a long-term Moderate Drought from far northwest Warren, through Benton, White, western Cass, Fulton, Pulaski, Newton & Jasper counties.  I bit farther southeast, there is a band of Abnormally Dry conditions.

Next week features frequent bouts of cloudiness with near normal to slightly-above normal temperatures.  A few snow showers are possible Wednesday, otherwise it is dry.

Rainfall & 50s return a week from this weekend.

Could we squeeze in a random accumulating snow next week to early January?  If it happens, it would be brief.  We will monitor.

Overall, looks like a warmer than normal pattern with above normal precipitation.

Want snow, ice & cold?  As we begin mid-January, we should get into a period of more winter-like weather.

Note the below normal temperatures arriving at that point:
