A few spotty showers are passing through Howard, Tipton, Clinton, Boone, Montgomery, Tippecanoe & Fountain counties now, working northwestward.

With blocking upper ridge pushing upper low south, again, it is keeping the widespread rains south of us.

I still think Sunday will not be too bad with partly to occasionally mostly cloudy skies in the south, I cannot rule out a few isolated showers/t’showers, but coverage will only run around 20%.  With highs from 69 to 76 from south to north, it will be a pretty nice Sunday.

On a side note, the cold air is wrapping around that cold-core upper low to our south.  Widespread record cold was felt from Texas to Mississippi this morning with record cold likely in Alabama to northwest Florida tonight.  Highs today were only in the 40s in parts of Alabama to Tennessee.

High at Gulf Shores, Alabama today: 68.  High at West Lafayette:  70.
