Here is the latest forecast outlook regarding this weekend & Halloween.

Rain has become widespread.

Steady rains will become more spotty this evening & into tonight.

Temperatures will run in the mid 40s this evening with lows tonight near 40 to the low 40s.  Northeast winds will keep wind chills in the 30s.

Any rainfall tomorrow looks pretty isolated/spotty with lots of clouds & some peeks of sun here & there.  Highs will reach the lower to middle 50s with a north-northwest breeze.

Clipper will race through Sunday.

It looks like a wave of rainfall in the morning to near midday.  Given the dynamics & decreasing temperatures aloft, I cannot rule out a rumble or two of thunder. 

Rainfall should be much more spotty in the afternoon with potential of a period where the sun comes out near midday to early afternoon (before it turns completely cloudy again).  In that little wedge of sunshine just ahead of the cold front, highs will likely surge to 56-60 from Greater Lafayette & southwestward.  Farther north & east, temperatures will reach 50-55.

Temperatures should fall in the afternoon into the 40s to 50.

Sunday ainfall totals of 0.15-0.35" are likely.

Gusty southwest winds early should turn to the northwest in the afternoon, bringing in the colder air.

Wednesday-Thursday period looks rainy & breezy to windy.  It is looking more & more like two rounds of rainfall from two separate storm systems.  One round Wednesday, then another Thursday.  Hopefully we will get a break between the two for Trick-or-Treating.  That is the question.

There is even data indicating perhaps some rainfall Tuesday, but I held off on that.  These are all new changes to the forecast to such a degree that I want to see consistent, good ensemble data before I tweak Tuesday.

Highs will run in the 50s & 60s after 50s with dry weather Monday.

Widespread rainfall totals of 0.75-1" are likely with some 1-2" amounts.

With lots of clouds & windy conditions, highs next Friday should run in the 40s.
