We are tracking gloomy, but spring-like weather over Greater Lafayette this Thursday morning. Patchy drizzle and dense fog have blanketed over the WLFI viewing area this midday with the visibility dropping below a quarter of a mile in our northern counties.
As a result, the National Weather Service extended the Dense Fog Advisory through 5 p.m. EST for Pulaski, Fulton, Benton, Newton and Jasper counties. You will want to prepare for difficult travel conditions this afternoon because of the thick fog and heavy rain.
A storm system is tracking over northern Indiana today and it will continue to supply the area with scattered rainfall through the evening commute. A few embedded thunderstorms will be possible today ahead of an approaching cold front. Severe weather is not expected for the WLFI viewing area, however, a few storms may produce a few strong wind gusts. A Marginal (1) Risk now exists south of the Indianapolis area, meaning strong storms may form this afternoon and evening.
The cold front is going to track over the state tonight and temperatures are going to quickly drop behind the boundary. Lafayette will fall near 34° by Friday morning’s commute with a slight chance for flurries. A cold temperatures and light snow may create a few slick spots early Friday morning.
