Tomorrow's highs are likely to run 76-84 after 50-55 in the early morning with patchy fog.

Cluster of storms is possible afternoon-evening that would ridge down the warm front with severe risk.

All severe aspects possible from wind, large to tornado risk with this supercell cluster. 

Right now, latest data tracks it on the edge of mid 70s northeast to mid 80s southwest & around 80 at Greater Lafayette.
