Received a few reports of sub-severe hail late yesterday evening from dime-sized hail at Kentland to pea-sized hail near Boswell & marble-sized hail just south of Oxford.  A wind gust of 40 mph was reported at Kentland.

Rainfall varied from 0.02" to 2.50".  Up to 2.50" was reported in northwestern Benton County.  In Tippecanoe County, totals varied from 0.02" to 0.60" of the spotters reporting.  Heaviest amounts were in the northeastern part of the county.

After 78-85 Sunday & 65-73 yesterday for highs, we are running 56-65 as of 12 p.m. with some showers in our southern half of the viewing area.

These are moving northward.

So, expect some showers this afternoon at times with brisk north to north-northeast winds & temperatures in the 50s to lower 60s.

Severe weather & warm, muggy conditions will stay along & south of the Ohio River.

After any showers today, we should see some clearing late & lows 41-46 with north wind blowing that chilly wind from Lake Michigan.

Wednesday looks to turn mostly cloudy in the morning for a time, then see clearing trend.  We should be mostly sunny by 2 p.m. viewing area-wide.

Winds looks strong from the north-northwest up to 35 mph.

We should turn mostly cloudy to cloudy Wednesday night with lows in the 40s to 50, followed by the arrival of our Alberta Clipper system Thursday.

A wave of some scattered showers & a few storms are expected in the afternoon.  Given cooling temperatures aloft & dropping freezing levels, some isolated sub-severe hail is possible on the order of pea to marble size.

Southwest to west, then northwest winds up to 35 mph are likely.

Highs should run in the 63-70 range.

After 40s to 50 Thursday night, cold pocket aloft Friday should fuel a few showers & t'showers in the PM as cumulus towers building.  There is the risk of an isolated small hailer.

Highs in the 66-73 range are likely with northwest winds to 31 mph.

Warm front will be on the move northward Saturday.

After morning lows of 41-46, highs should reach 66-72 in the afternoon with east to southeast 5-15 mph wind as clouds increase.

Wave of rainfall along & north of the warm front is possible Saturday night-Sunday AM.  Lows near 50 to the 50s are likely.

We should dry out Sunday, but still be north of the warm front, so winds will be easterly at 10-25 mph with more clouds south & more sun north.

Highs of 65-71 are likely.

Showers & storms are likely later Monday with another round Monday night & a few Tuesday.

Main round is Wednesday.

Thoughts are that warm front will begin to surge northward, bathing us in 70s to lower 80s, but there may be a big difference in temperature north to south Monday & Tuesday given that the warm front may split the area in half.

Some severe weather risk is possible Wednesday of next week.

We should turn cooler & dry out at the end of next week with highs in the 60s to 70s with lows in the 40s.

Big warm-up with 80s should then return with multiple rounds of showers & storms May 16-24.

Severe weather risk is possible on a couple to several occasions.
