Fall-like temperatures on the horizon

Cooler temperatures are in store after what has been another hot and humid workweek across Greater Lafayette.

Posted: Sep 21, 2018 5:56 PM

Temperatures are running more than 10 degrees cooler than this time yesterday, and these numbers will continue to drop as we head into the weekend.

The reason behind the upcoming cool-down was the cold front that passed through the region Friday morning. Rainfall totals reached around a tenth of an inch across Greater Lafayette. Rensselaer saw rainfall totals exceed three tenths of inch. Despite the lack of rain over the past week, rainfall totals are at a surplus for the month. Lafayette is still around fourth tenths of an inch above average for September.

For your Friday evening, expect comfortable temperatures. It’ll be a beautiful evening for some high school football action! Temperatures will remain in the 70’s through the 7 o’clock hour before dropping to the mid 60’s by 9 pm. A light jacket or sweater may be needed if you run cold.

Tonight will see partly cloudy skies with a slight breeze. Temperatures will drop to the lower 50’s.

This weekend will be the first official weekend of astronomical fall, and the temperatures will certainly reflect that. Expect a high of 70 degrees for tomorrow. Great tailgating weather is in store if you’re heading out to Ross-Ade to watch the Boilermakers take on Boston College. Clouds will gradually clear through the morning, leaving us with mostly sunny skies in the afternoon.

Fall like temperatures stick around for the 7-day forecast. Overnight lows will drop into the 40’s. The last time we saw lows in the 40’s? May 8th of this year, which saw a low of 45 degrees!
