Waves of steadier rain have gone to scattered showers with isolated thunder this evening. 

The scattered showers will become more isolated overnight.

Only an isolated shower may still be around early Friday morning.

There will be breaks in the clouds Friday with highs 62-67 (northwest to southeast with 64 at Greater Lafayette) after morning lows of 42-51 from northwest to southeast (48 Greater Lafayette).

Winds will run north-northeasterly at 10-20 mph.

Wave or two of showers & isolated thunder are likely Friday night-Saturday morning, followed by some clearing & highs 59-66 from east to west (63 at Greater Lafayette) with north-northeast winds at 8-14 mph.

This, after morning lows of 47-52.

Sunday looks good with sun & 70-77, followed by 50s Sunday night.

It appears that warm front will bath us in 73-80 Monday & Tuesday could end up being the warmest day of 2019 so far. 

Warm front should shoot way north to north of Chicago to Grand Rapids.

Highs Tuesday could reach 80-85 with dew points 65-70 making it feel hot & muggy.  Winds look gusty from the south-southwest up to 35 mph.

Some scattered showers & storms are possible Monday, mainly in the PM & the best coverage will tend to run north of Route 18. 

A couple isolated severe storms are possible.

Tuesday is looking largely dry, other than a couple spotty renegade storms with a cumulus-filled sky.

Widespread rainfall & storms are possible Wednesday to early Thursday.

At this point, it appears that the severe risk corridor may stay south & southeast of us. 

However, it appears that we may dry out Thursday afternoon.

Highs both days will run in the 60s north to 70s to around 80 south (73-76 Greater Lafayette).

We may see showers & storms Friday-Saturday (May 10-11), but May 12-13 currently look mostly sunny & dry. 

A couple isolated severe storms are possible.

After 70s to 80s Friday-Saturday, highs/lows  May 12-13 look to run 64-68 & 68-74 with lows in the 40s.

Warm front will lift back through with more rounds of showers & storms May 14-17 with highs in the 70s & 80s (60s north at times).

Some severe risk may develop.

Total rainfall now to May 17 looks to run 3-6" here.

Pattern looks to break down & we should dry out overall after May 17.  River flooding may continue to late May.
