Other than a few isolated showers/storms tonight as the warm front lifts northward, we look overall dry through Tuesday morning.  Temperatures will not fall nearly as much as lastnight.  Last night we dropped to 38-46. 

The Purdue Ag Farm COOP station dropped to 40, while the Purdue Airport ASOS bottomed out at 42.  The White County Airport dipped to 40, while Attica saw 41, Crawfordsville Airport 42, Logansport Municipal Airport 43, Grissom ARB 43, Fulton County Airport 45. The coldest temperatures were in Newton & Jasper counties.  Multiple weather stations dropped into the 30s.  Morocco station at U.S. 41/Route 14 dipped to 38.  DeMotte dropped to 37.8 degrees.  St. Anne, Illinois bottomed out at 36.

Tonight we will only drop to 52-55 after 60-65 today.

With decreasing clouds, highs tomorrow will reach 77-81 with a south to southwest wind.  Monday's highs should hit 79-83 with southwest winds after morning lows in the 50s to 60.

The remnants of a Major Pacific hurricane are headed for Arizona with flooding rainfall.  The flooding rain there will likely make national news.  Meanwhile, the first fall-type system of the year will reach California.  Both will bring rainfall to our area later next week after a some scattered storms (as warm front tries to buckle back south) Tuesday.

In fact these, & a couple other systems should keep it active with rain & storms off & on right to October 8.  Much colder weather & a frost/freeze should follow.

Farmers, it will be touch & go October 4-9 with the off & on locally-heavy rainfall.  Then count on a freeze to zap any volunteer corn & warm-season annual grasses like foxtails, johnsgrass & barnyard grass in your fields!

Note the rounds of severe weather that occur in an area from Texas to Illinois for days.  Note how data suggests we will get in on some of that severe weather late next week-October 9.

Mid-month, our temperatures may see a sudden major spike again as yet ANOTHER hurricane blasts Baja California.  Another round of flooding is possible for Arizona.  System still looks like it will blow up into a major Rockies to High Plains snowstorm/blizzard with severe weather Texas to Missouri.

This could bring showers/storms & a sudden temperature surge upward in mid-October.

More frost will likely follow.
