Lows Friday morning were 43-52.  The 42.8 at the Purdue Airport was the coldest low in the state of Indiana among AWOS/ASOS, COOP, INDOT, CWOP & Mesonet stations.  The Purdue Ag Farm dropped to 46. 

Some ecord lows for the date & period of record:

40 - 1959 West Lafayette (Ag Farm) (1879-present)

40 - 1933 Crawfordsville (1893-present)

41 - 1933 Delphi (1893-present)

41 - 1963 Rensselaer (1900-present)

41 - 1933 Fowler Area (1927-1971) (1989-2010)

42 - 1927 Monticello (1910-2002)

With southwest winds up to 35 mph & unusually dry air for June (dew points 32-43), highs reached 76-80 Friday.

We are moistening up now after virga & a few sprinkles.

From here on out showers & storms will increase with the overnight & especially Saturday morning.  Showers & storms will be around through the morning & even to early afternoon Saturday.  Temperatures will run in the 60s to 70 with dew points rising to the 60s to around 70.

An isolated small hailer or two is possible.

Isolated severe risk will enter the picture mid afternoon onward into the night. 

This will occur as some stronger dynamics overspread the area with stronger winds aloft & shear. 

Also, even with a lack of the best heating here, some colder air aloft & dew points reaching 67-71 with temperatures 70-77 over the area may promote a couple isolated severe storms in the afternoon. 

Severe risk does not look widespread, however.

There is a narrow window of some dry weather for the area sandwiched in the 7:30-11 p.m. time frame.

Another round of showers & storms is likely around & after 11 p.m. & into the overnight.  An isolated severe storm or two is possible, but it does not look like a widespread threat of any kind.  The better risk is shaping up southwest & south of our area.

1-3" of rainfall is likely area-wide Friday night to Saturday night.

Most of Sunday looks dry except for a few showers & storms perhaps along the cold front as it passes in the late afternoon-evening.  Much of the storm action Sunday will blow up southeast of the area on the outflow boundary of all of our rainfall & storms Saturday night.

With southwest to west wind Sunday, highs will run 80-85 with dew points in the humid 60s to 70.
