Cooler weather giving way to a big warm-up ahead.

Lows this morning ran 53-58.  As of noon, temperatures are 55-64 over the viewing area with brisk east wind.

Clouds dominate today, but holes & breaks will occur here & there over the area.  Note a few breaks in the clouds approaching our southeast in the visible satellite image.

A couple isolated showers are possible today-this evening (25%).

Highs should run in the 60s to 70.

With lots of clouds & some sun, a few isolated to spotty showers/t'showers are possible Thursday (25-30%).

Highs should run 66-73 (69-71 Greater Lafayette).

This, after 50s in the morning.

Friday looks to have mix of sun & clouds with an isolated t'shower possible (20%) & highs 71-79 (75-77 Greater Lafayette).

This, after 50s in the morning.

Highs Saturday should run in the 80s.

Very warm, humid weather will dominate Sunday-Tuesday with highs 80s to nearing 90 & lows 60s to near 70.

In terms of showers/t'storms, a few are possible late Saturday-Saturday night & potential is there for a few early Saturday morning.  All coverage looks to run up to 40%.

As for Sunday, looks like 40% coverage, mainly PM.  By the way, with that 85-90 Sunday, heat indices may run 89-96.

Some showers & t'storms are possible Memorial Day, largely in the PM.  Coverage should run around 45%.

I put 40% coverage of t'storms for Tuesday & 40% coverage Wednesday.

MARGINAL to SLIGHT RISK parameters show up for any t'storms Saturday to Monday. 

After that, severe risk tends to shift well northwest of our area with no substantial risk until near June 3.  We will monitor, as that could change, but analyzing all new data that is the best forecast right now.

Temperatures run above normal for the rest of May.

There will likely be a brief cool-down for some relief from the heat & humidity in early June before we heat up & turn muggy again.
