The heat wave came to an end today in Greater Lafayette.......juuuuuust barely (with 89 officially)!

Highs today reached 82-89.  It is the first day since June 27 that none of the observation sites reach 90!

Also, heat indices at all sites stayed below 95, a first since June 27.

Our high of 88 at our WLFI ob site is the lowest high temperature since the 82 on June 27 when Kentland, Brook, Earl Park, Remington & Rensselaer saw the significant flash flooding.

Wind gusts today were measured as high as 35 mph in the viewing area.

June 2020 & July 2020 (so far) with our WLFI observations:

A couple isolated showers tracking from Pulaski to Cass to Howard counties are out, now any lingering clouds will tend to clear tonight with lows 63-68.

A northwest to west-northwest wind of 5-15 mph will continue.

Highs of 86-91 are likely tomorrow with high indices of 90-96 with a west wind 5-15 mph becoming southwest late.

Mostly sunny skies should become partly cloudy.

Storms are likely Saturday evening-night to early Sunday a.m.  Current preliminary timing is 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. time frame.

A couple/few severe storms are possible with a wind/hail threat.  Locally-heavy rainfall is possible.

So far, SPC has western half in MARGINAL RISK for severe weather.  This risk will likely be expanded eastward.  SLIGHT RISK may be painted in western/southwestern counties.

Some scattered showers/storms are likely Sunday with a mix of clouds & sun, but it appears that the main area of severe weather risk will be southeast of the viewing area.  Highs will run in the humid to muggy 80s.

An isolated severe storm or two is possible here, but higher potential for some severe weather looks to not make it any farther north than southern Indiana to central Ohio.

Intense heat will spread east & northward next week.

On the periphery of this dome of heat, multiple MCSs (complexes of storms) or perhaps even a serial derecho (long-lived, significant damaging wind event with storm complex that occurs on ridge periphery in the "Ring of Fire") will occur.

2-3 of these may impact part of the viewing area Wednesday-Friday, currently most likely in the night-time to early morning hours.

We will monitor closely.

Otherwise, it will get intensely hot with highs 90 to the middle 90s Tuesday-Thursday & mid 90s to 100 Friday & next Saturday.

Sunday looks the hottest at the moment at 97-102.

Heat indices will surge to +105.

Storms will quell the heat by July 23-24, followed by another burst of intense heat in the last several days of July before storms & a nice break from the heat occurs in early August.
