Friday looks sunny with highs 34-39 with southwest winds 10-20 mph.  This, after 6-12 in the morning with a heavy frost.

Saturday & Sunday look good.  After cold, frosty mornings, the afternoons look bright & dry.  Both look breezy to windy.  Sunny to mostly sunny skies should dominate Saturday.  Some clouds will increase Sunday, especially late in the day.

I went for 45-50 Saturday & 50-55 Sunday.

Periods of rain Sunday night-Monday should taper to just some showers & drizzle Tuesday.

Temperatures should cool with more of an east to southeast wind.

Lows in the 35-40 range & highs in the 42-48 range are likely.

Much of the area will see a solid 1" of rainfall Sunday night-Tuesday.

Potential is there for very minor to minor accumulating snowfall Wednesday to Wednesday night with strong north to northwest winds.  A few snow showers & flurries may linger into Thursday with temperatures well-below normal.

February 28-March 6 features several clippers & Arctic front with multiple bursts of below to well-below normal temperatures.

Temperature anomalies February 27-March 5:

However, there is a sign of a quick burst of warmth around March 8-9 with rainfall & some t'storms with potential of 60s for highs. This would be a warm spot in an otherwise cold March overall until late in the month.

However, winter will likely follow with temperatures well-below normal.

However, even with that quick warm spell, cold dominates & drags the temperature anomaly way down.

Temperature anomalies March 5-12:

For example, this is a projected cold shot around March 18.  Lows are projected at 7-11.  The record low for West Lafayette for that date is 4 in 1906.

It also projects a record cold high in the 21-26 range.

Then, the tide begins to turn with the first widespread 90s of the year developing in South Texas by March 20-21.

The trend is for the 70-degree line to make it up our way after March 21.

The last 7 days of March look warmer than normal.

March precipitation is normal to a bit below normal overall, UNTIL the last 7 days, when it appears that precipitation will be above normal.

At this point, March-April-May look wetter overall with temperatures averaging near normal.
