Highs today reached 63-70 after lows this morning of 50-56.  The low of 55 this morning at Greater Lafayette was 3 degrees from tying the daily record warm low of 58 set in 1934.  The high officially in Greater Lafayette reached 69, this is 5 degrees from the record high of 74 set in 1942.

Periods of scattered showers are likely tonight.  Isolated thunder is possible.  Rainfall will be most widespread & heaviest in the south.

Lows will run 38-45 north to south with north-northeast winds 8-18 mph.

A lull in the action will develop tomorrow with mostly cloudy skies & highs 47-53.  Winds will be north-northeast at 10-15 mph.

Widespread rain overspreads the area tomorrow evening-night & then tapers Sunday morning-midday.  Continued mostly cloudy to cloudy skies should follow.  Rain may mix with or change to some wet snow, mainly in our northeastern counties, as temperatures fall into the 30s Sunday morning. 

After 34-39 for lows tomorrow night, highs Sunday will reach 41-46 with a northeast wind becoming north to northwest at 7-15 mph.

Rainfall totals should run 0.40" in the northwest & then increase with south & southeastward extent.  Up to 1-1.50" may fall on our southern & southeastern fringe.  The heart of the viewing area is looking at 0.50-0.90".

Monday looks good & seasonably cool with sunshine & 43-47.  Frost & 25-28 is likely Monday night.

We should cloud up Tuesday with a few isolated showers late with southeast to south-southeast winds 15-25 mph & highs 47-55.

Periods of rain are likely Wednesday with 52-57, followed by rising temperatures with a lull, then more rainfall & even some storms Wednesday night to early Thursday morning.  Temperatures may rise to 56-63, then fall Thursday morning-afternoon through the 50s to 40s.  Thursday looks like a windy day with west to northwest winds with gusts to 37 mph.

Rainfall totals of 1-2.50" are possible.

Severe weather is possible Oklahoma & Texas to as far north as far southern Indiana & Kentucky & then down to Mississippi.

After this storm system, it does not look overly cool.  Highs Friday will run 50-56 with partly cloudy skies.

Latter November to early December continues to trend above to well-above normal temperatures over our area & over a massive chunk of the Lower 48.

Overall, December looks warmer than normal with continued potential of a day or few days/nights of near/record warmth.

The only area I think may end up cooler than normal is parts of California to Oregon & western Washington to southwestern British Columbia.

Rainfall now to the end of December continues to trend above normal for our region.

There is higher risk of cool-season severe weather events & high wind events.

Snowfall looks below normal.

January-February temperature trends above normal here, but below normal in the northwest with heavy snow.

Coldest weather of the winter is currently shaping up for late January to early February.

Thoughts continue to center around normal snowfall in January & below normal snowfall in February.

There is higher than normal risk of cool-season severe weather events, flood episodes, near/record warmth, as well as substantial icing event or ice storm.

Precipitation is above to well-above normal overall for January-February period.

Early spring is likely with above to well-above normal temperatures in March with unusually cold weather in the Northwest & West.

We have a higher risk of severe weather & flooding, as well as near/record warmth.

March looks wetter than normal.

April & May look wetter than normal with above normal temperatures.

Analog suggests a planting window of a week in April, but short duration planting windows otherwise right into May.

Severe weather risk will be higher than normal & the highest since 2011.

Hot, dry summer is expected with widespread drought from South Dakota & Nebraska to Ohio, Pennsylvania & New York.  Looks the worst since 2012.  It looks worse than what we had here in 2020. 

Above normal temperatures dominate the summer here.
