Temperatures as of 3 p.m. are very pleasant!
The Purdue Airport is actually the coolest spot in the entire viewing area (all weather stations) as of 3 p.m., oddly.
Analyzing all of the latest data, it appears that two waves of scattered showers & t’storms are on the way for the weekend.
Highs Saturday will run near 80 to the lower 80s with strong south-southwest wind after 50s in the morning. Skies looks largely partly cloudy, except cloudy to mostly cloudy skies with any passing shower/t’storm in the afternoon.
The first will pass with 20-25% coverage Saturday afternoon. Good news is that coverage looks low.
The second will pass Saturday night-early Sunday morning with 50% coverage.
Dynamics favor an isolated severe storm, perhaps two (wind/hail) & data has favored that for a week, but I didn’t want to put a lot of emphasis on it given the conditional threat.
The better potential of more widespread severe weather will be northwest of our area.
Rainfall totals will vary from 0.10″ in places to as much as 0.85″ under any heavier showers/t’storms.
The deepest tropical moisture of Orline will tend to fall west of the area.
Then, next week look great with 70s all week with lower 80s by next Friday!
Right now, still looks like the potential of a cool, fall-like Feast of the Hunter’s Moon to begin with highs in the 50s & lows in the lower 30s.
