Forecast Discussion:

A potent area of high pressure remains in place over much of the Great Plains and Midwest this morning. Northerly winds will keep afternoon high temperatures throughout the viewing area below the average today; however, we’re still anticipating an absolutely beautiful day ahead. We’ll top out at 80° in Lafayette later this afternoon with very little upper level moisture. Once our high moves to our southeast, it will team up with a low positioned to our west driving a warmer and moister air mass into the region. The influx of humid conditions will help produce isolated rainfall as a weak warm front moves in from the Great Plains. The latest models have light and isolated precipitation forming over the region between 1:00PM and 4:00PM. We’ll dry out for a period before more scattered showers and thunderstorms move in ahead of the cold front late Saturday night into early Sunday morning. Storms are likely to develop across the state on Sunday as well, as the main cold front passes to our east. Another low and cold front combo could bring additional rain to the Midwest on Monday. If the current trends hold, these rounds of rain could produce more than an inch of precipitation by next Tuesday.
