Highs today reached 82-88 with heat indices peaking at 82-92.

It was also a breezy to windy day with gusts as high as 32 mph in the area.

Cold front continues to move southeastward & is now exiting the area after popping a few brief, spotty showers.

Front is lined up from south of Tipton to north of Terre Haute now & we have nice, brisk northwest wind at 15-25 mph with temperature falling to the mid to upper 60s in our northwestern counties.

Any isolated severe storm will occur in a narrow window overnight in far southern Indiana as showers & storms pulse up a bit more.

Friday looks like a nice day with 76-80 with sun & a nice breeze from the west-northwest after 51-56 in the morning.

After lows of 52-59 Saturday night, it looks like a mostly sunny day, but windy & warmer with highs 82-87.  Winds will be from the south-southwest at 15-30 mph.  Humidity will be held in check.

Saturday evening-night, a few isolated showers & storms are possible in our northwestern & far northern counties (25%) as a front sinks southward a bit.

Meanwhile, severe storms will blow up over Minnesota & develop into an MCS or organized complex of storms.

MCS should ridge southeast along front.  It could bring some severe weather to the area Sunday with MARGINAL to SLIGHT parameters. 

Cap may be an issue, however down stream of the MCS into our area.  It also appears that this MCS may tend to pass in the late morning to midday before we really maximize heating, thus quelling more robust storm action.

Nonetheless, we will monitor for changes in the forecast in regard to timing & strength of the MCS & the environment downstream of it into our area.

This cap or layer of hot, dry air from the Plains may even overspread Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin Sunday afternoon, inhibiting storm development, despite an area ripe for robust severe storm development.

In fact, parameters are impressive in that zone for ENHANCED RISK.

We will monitor.

Cap weakening may lead to a lot of severe weather Iowa & Minnesota to as far south as northern Illinois & Indiana Sunday night-Monday.  Here, some storms are possible Monday in the north with risk of some severe.

As main cold front & upper trough swing through Tuesday, showers & storms are likely with risk of some severe, followed by the significant cool-down. 

The core of this unusually cool air will nuzzle right up agains the Front Range of the Rockies & into the High Plains with Denver going from a high of 100 to a low of 32 in a couple of days with some early wet snow in the Rockies just west of Denver.  Pierre, South Dakota will go from a high of 95 to a high of 55 in two days with a low near 34.

The central U.S. will have the great temperature anomalies, while the cool-down will be less noticeable in the far eastern U.S. & in the Southeast.

We should from a high near 90 to lows near 47 in about 3 days.
