Today. We can expect to see Partly cloudy skies and a nice warm day with Mild temperatures in the low 50s. We will see winds light between 15 and 20 mph with a few gusts to 20mph. Lows will be in the upper 20s.
Thursday. Rain with the slight chance for a thunderstorm. We can expect rain to move in in the afternoon with rainfall looking between Three quarters of an inch to one inch possible. The amounts could still go up if the storm track changes again. Any thunderstorms currently does not look to be severe just some good old thunder. We will however watch this closely.....Highs in the low 50s and lows will be in the mid 30s.
Friday. Looking Partly cloudy with highs in the low 40s and lows in the upper 20s. Starting to cool a slight bit.
Extended Outlook. The weekend may have a few light snow flurries but nothing big anything that would fall currently looks light few and far between. Yes a little cooler but not for long with the long range outlook showing us above average temperature wise. Sunday is looking Mostly sunny and nice!
That's right it was a beautiful sunset with that red sky and as you have heard It really is a Delight! And that will hold true for our forecast today! With the partly cloudy skies coming in and highs will be in the 50s today! Warm weather lovers can thank a warm front for this great looking day! We will see the warm front push through today however it is not all good as we will see a cold front follow by tomorrow! This could fire up some thunderstorms as we have the winter weather to our north and west and warm humid air to our south. We will watch things closely however I have good news and not so good news.
Lets go with the good news first! Currently it looks like we wont have to worry to much about severe thunderstorms on Thursday just some good old thunder but for the bad news..... We may have to worry about flooding!..........Currently Lafayette could see rainfall between Three quarters of an inch to One inch of rain. And higher amounts the more north you go of Lafayette. The amounts can still change more if the track changes just a bit. So I will keep watching this and keep you posted with another update later on tonight..... As of now we look to start to see this rain move in by the afternoon of Thursday.
We will feel a little breezy later on Thursday as the rain tries to move out into Friday with a few gusts to 30 maybe even 35 mph. Another windy day But at least temperatures will be rather nice! I e-mailed my friend in Baton Rouge LA, yesterday and was telling her about all the cold wind chills we had last week which was around zero degrees. I was telling her we will be seeing highs in the 40s and 50s which will feel like a heat wave to us here in Indiana, However she has tolled me she will turn the heater on if the temperature drops to the 60s or 50s. So my point is our heat wave would be just another cold day in LA, But I'M sure we will take 40s and 50s no problem! Right? :0) lol..... Let's all enjoy our good looking day today!
