Lows tonight will run 53 northeast to 62 southwest as front drops south some & turns wind to northwest, north, then northeast to east with a some clouds around.

Front lifts back northward through area tomorrow morning-afternoon.

A few isolated storms are possible tomorrow morning.  A random, isolated severe storm cannot completely be ruled out (large hail).

Friday AM-midday:

After a break, temperatures should warm to 78 north to 88 far south tomorrow & around 84 at Greater Lafayette with winds shifting to southeast, then south, south of the front.

Front should lay up near our northern counties in the afternoon-evening.

Along it, a few more isolated storms may pop.

Isolated severe storm or two is possible there (isolated wind).

Storms may just skim our far northwest Friday night-early Saturday, but more importantly, they will put out an outflow boundary that will likely be laid up from Peru to West Lafayette to Pine Village by Saturday morning.

Lows by Saturday morning will drop to just 65-70 over the area.

This boundary may shift northward some as strong heating & southerly winds occur Saturday.

Mid-afternoon to evening, it is likely that some storms pop on that boundary.

Best idea of location of the storms would be in a line from Earl Park to Remington to near Monticello, Logansport & Peru. 

Storms should move eastward along the boundary.

Some severe weather is possible with these storms.

Some showers & storms are possible Sunday morning-midday, but it appears that the main severe weather corridor & widespread, heavier rainfall corridor continues to set up south & southeast of our area for Sunday afternoon-evening.

We may still have a few showers & storms around, but the widespread action continues to show a tendency to be south & southeast of here.

The weather doesn't look great for the Indianapolis 500 right now.

Monday (Memorial Day) & Tuesday look dry with 80s (near 90 in places Tuesday) with high humidity as front moves back northward (after 50s to 60 Sunday night).

More widespread storms & higher severe weather risk return Wednesday.

It looks like a fast-moving squall line with wind threat.

Thursday will be cooler & less humid before we heat right back up for Memorial Day weekend.  Latest data suggests 80s to 90 with high humidity.  Overnight lows look to run in the 60s to 70.

Storms return around June 2 & then again closer to June 10.
