Highs today ran 74-85 with warmest readings in the far north.  Weather station northwest of Wheatfield was the warmest in the area at 85.  Coolest was the New Market observation site (Reeves Farms sensor) at 74.  Our high of 77 at the Purdue Airport & WLFI ob site was the coolest high temperature since the early half of June.  It was the coolest since June 1 at the airport & June 13 at WLFI.

All observation sites failed to get to 80 except those in the far north.

Rainfall totals varied from 0 to 3.80".

In the Doppler radar estimated rainfall maps, only rainfall of 0.10" or greater is in the color on the map.

Also note that the higher rainfall pocket near Chalmers is contamination of the rainfall data from the wind farm.  Ground truth came from our Chalmers spotter, Kandy Teal, with 0.09"  This is why you all are so important!  Your totals help to confirm or deny data shown on radar.

There tends to be frequent data contamination in that area due to wind farms, but a nice surface observation & measurement is always helpful!

This NWS alert map below basically shows our weather in a nutshell now to next weekend.

Storm system with flooding rainfall & severe weather risk south of us will bring us isolated to spotty showers Friday & Saturday

Rainfall coverage should go up Saturday night to Sunday with showers & storms.  A few showers & storms are possible Monday, followed by a few isolated showers Tuesday.

Highs of 79-84 Friday-Saturday will give way to 78-83 Sunday, 77-82 Monday & 77-81 Tuesday (to 80-85 Wednesday) with clouds/sun most days.  Lows will be in the near 60 to the 60s largely, but Tuesday night may dip well down into the 50s with areas of fog.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Isaias will brush by Florida & the Carolinas & ride up the East Coast this weekend & through early next week.

Then, the heat to the west moves in with a burst of 90 to the 90s by next weekend (with the risk of storms returning).
