The lowest we have been all of Fall has been 49 on three occasions since early September, to put this into perspective.  Southern California is seeing cooler weather than we have seen yet this Fall.

Low temperatures this morning were near/at all-time record high low temperatures for the month of October (most of the record datasets date back to near 1895......Renssealer is back to 1900, Winamac 1897, Frankfort 1914, Rochester 1896, Southeast of Monticello 1893, Kokomo 1901, for example.  Greater Lafayette data dates back to 1879).

Lows tonight:

Highs today reached 88-93 with heat indices as high as 101. 

Putting 90 over saturated soil really drove up the dew points in parts of our northwest today, resulting in those unusually high heat indices for October!

The actual maximum air temperatures were near/at record high levels for the month of October.

There will be more clouds tomorrow with 80-88 northwest to southeast for highs as anafront moves southward, turning wind from southwest to west & then northwest.  Temperatures may drop some in the late afternoon.

A few spotty showers/t'showers are possible with 30% coverage.

Rainfall coverage will increase to 50% Wednesday night to Thursday morning, mainly in the north.  It is possible that our far northern tier may see a few places get 1" of rainfall.

In fact, areas in our central & southern counties will not see a drop of rain from this front.

Thursday looks breezy to windy & mostly cloudy, followed by some later clearing.  Highs of 64-71 are likely with potential of temperatures to drop some in the late afternoon.

After 40s Thursday night, Friday looks mostly sunny with 60s, followed by near 40 to the 40s Friday night as clouds begin to increase.

Scattered showers & isolated thunder are possible at times Saturday-Saturday night with east to east-southeast winds 61-66 & lows 51-55.

Any showers Sunday currently looked to be confined to the morning, followed by partly to mostly cloudy skies & highs 64-69.

Additions scattered showers are possible Sunday night-Monday morning with lows of 51-55.

Total rainfall Saturday-Monday morning currently looks to run at 0.10-0.50".

Dry & cooler weather will dominate early next week with some patchy frost at night.
