With that cold front now to our east, the strong upper low located to our northwest will insure that temperatures peak well below the average high for this time of the year. As it delivers the cooler air mass from the upper Great Plains, that low will position itself over the Great lakes later this afternoon and possible supply the viewing area with a brief period of isolated rain. We’ll see some partial clearing overnight as temperatures dip near the freezing mark; expect a low of 34° in Lafayette this evening. High pressure will begin to push in from the southern Great Plains for Saturday; while we’ll see some more sunshine, temperatures will remain 9° below average. The very same high will situate itself to our east by Sunday morning ushering in warm and moist air mass from the southeast. Temperatures will jump up into the upper 60s and low 70s throughout the viewing area, but much like the remainder of the extended forecast, there’s a slight chance of precipitation. A warm front will drudge its way across the state producing scattered rain as it moves. Usually when there’s a warm front, a cold front follows, and that’s exactly what we can expect for the beginning of the next work week. Afternoon high temperatures will once again climb back into the upper 60s and low 70s on Monday, but that cold front will pass with a chance of showers and even some thunderstorms. It appears that the remainder of your work week will stay mild with temperatures remaining above average; however, each day brings a chance of scattered rain and possible more thunderstorms.
