After highs of 82-87 yesterday, they ran 79-85 today with strong east-northeast winds. Gusts reached as high as 33 mph & were sustained at 20-25 mph at times.
The new data is in...............
Here is the outlook for the weekend & beyond.
Clouds will continue to be on the increase Saturday morning with mostly cloudy skies much of the afternoon-evening. Lows Saturday morning will run 59-63.
Highs Saturday will run from 79 southeast to 87 far northwest & 80-82 at Greater Lafayette.
It will be the warmest in the far northwest due to a longer duration of greater sunshine there & a band of sinking air just ahead of the more humid air & scattered rainfall. That sinking air will compress & heat up. You often see this on the edges of the lift associated with tropical storms & hurricanes. A band of sinking, drying, compressing, heating air will occur ahead of the first band of scattered rainfall & rising air. In this case it is the upper low to our southwest & not a tropical storm or hurricane.
Winds will still be pretty strong out of the east at 15-30 mph.
After dry air initially, it will turn more humid in the afternoon as a swath of humid air is pulled northwestward by low pressure well to our south.
A few scattered showers & storms are possible with 30% coverage in the p.m. These move southeast & east to northwest & west over the viewing area.
Rainfall coverage will peak Sunday at 50-60% overall with some waves of showers & storms pivoting through from the east & southeast.
Only mention of severe weather risk is brief rope funnel or weak, brief tornado that would occur due to the vorticity-rich environment of the spinning low pressure & the high humidity with low LCLs (cloud bases).
Winds will be east to east-southeast to northeast at 10-15 mph. Highs will run 76-81 with high humidity after morning lows in the 60s.
Rainfall Saturday-Monday AM will run 0.15" to 1.60" due to scattered nature of it.
Note the flooding +5" rains south & southeast of the area where Flood Watches are up.
This was the worry last weekend & early week when it appeared that this particular part of the storm system would make it as far northwest as our viewing area.
Monday should dry out & turn less humid with 70s with 50-55 Monday night. Tuesday looks good at 76-80, followed by 78-82 Wednesday with a few showers/storms late.
Thursday still looks cool for the time of year with north to northeast wind & highs 68-73. Lows of 47-52 are likely Thursday night.
70s Friday should give way to higher humidity, southwest winds & 81-85 Saturday (all with sunshine).
Sunday-Monday looks dry, breezy & bright with 80s.
June 18-25 looks very warm to hot & humid (hottest weather of 2019, so far). There may be a few bouts of storms with severe risk, but the majority of it will stay north, northwest & west of our area.
More of it may settle in here June 27-July 1 with locally-heavy rainfall & higher severe weather risk. It also looks very warm to hot & humid to very humid with dew points potentially well into the 70s.
