Highs today ran 46-54 with a slow, but sure clearing trend.

TONIGHT:

Clouds will increase & thicken tonight after some patchy light fog & lows 30-35.  Lows should rise to 33-37 late with light east wind.

TOMORROW:

Rain likely.  Brief isolated to spotty sleet is possible in the far northwest at the onset.  Isolated thunder is possible.  East to southeast wind 10-20 mph.  Highs 41-52 by 7 p.m. north to south (50 Greater Lafayette).

TOMORROW NIGHT:

Rain tapering in the evening then areas of fog with some light drizzle.  Lows 40-46 (45 Greater Lafayette), then temperatures rising to 48-60 (55 Greater Lafayette) by 8 a.m. Thursday morning.  Wind decreasing to 5-8 mph & turning to east.  Wind shifting back to southeast & south-southeast at 5-10 mph late.

Round of rain & some storms with risk of an isolated severe storm (hail) midday to late afternoon, then break with potential of a few breaks in the clouds.  Becoming windy.  Wind turning to south & increasing to 25-35 mph.  Highs 65-70 late.

THURSDAY NIGHT:

Rainfall tapering, then rainfall & t'storms likely. A few severe storms possible (wind, couple brief tornadoes possible). Temperatures 61-65. Windy. South-southwest wind 20-40 mph.

Looks like a couple of line of storms with some discrete cells with some supercell tendencies.

Any severe risk in the night would be in the 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. period, so have a way to get weather information in the night if a warning is issued.  This would be through a NOAA weather radio or your phone.

Cross-section of troposphere (skew-T) shows buoyancy, speed & directional shear for some severe.  Parameters do support SLIGHT RISK in our area.  Parameters support ENHANCED RISK southwest of our region.  We will wait & see the new SPC Convective Outlook when it comes out later tonight.
