Rainy, windy weather is ahead, courtesy of TD Gordon. Dry weather will follow next week.

Rainfall will increase Friday with a gradually-increasing northeast to east-northeast wind from 10-15 to 15-20 mph.  Highs will only run near 70 to the mid 70s.

Note the storms in the sheared environment of Gordon from Arkansas & southern Missouri to southern Illinois & Indiana to northern Kentucky.  These may produce an isolated tornado or two.

Two words for Satuday: wet & windy!

With cloudy skies rain will be with us all day with gusty east-northeast winds 15-25 mph increasing to 20-35 mph by evening.

Check out the driving heavy rainfall Saturday night to early Sunday morning!  East-northeast winds will increase to sustained winds of 15-25 mph with gusts 35-45 mph later Saturday night.  This wind will drive that rain into east- & northeast-facing windows of your house.  Some weakened branches may come down, resulting in isolated power outages due to the weight of the rainfall on the foliated branches with that wind.  Your trash cans & patio furniture may get tossed around as well.

Looks like the heaviest rainfall will be out of the viewing area by 9 a.m., as will the strongest winds.

Sunday will still be gray, breezy, cool & showery, however, despite the worst of the weather pushing away.

Note the purple band rotating northward through the area Saturday night with the strongest gusts of 35-45 mph.

Now-Sunday rainfall of 2-6" is likely with the heaviest totals in our far southern areas.  An average of 3" is likely around Greater Lafayette area.

Nice week looks nice, but it will actually turn summer-like by a week from this weekend.  Isolated storms & very warm & hot humid weather will return with highs in the 80s to 90.

Check out the unseasonably warm early morning temperatures (at 7 a.m. Eastern) projected for September 18.  The lows are record warm in Minnesota to South Dakota to Wisconsin.

Strong cold front is due in as we near September 19/20, which will change everything. Widespread lows in the 40s will occur behind it for several nights, triggering the first hints/dustings of fall color!

How about 39-45 lows on the morning of September 24?!
