SATURDAY PROG CHART.....
This slow moving warm front is still trying to get through the state of Indiana. Above is a Prog chart I put together for you all showing where this warm front will be late, late tonight into Saturday early morning. This is the last of this terrible heat wave before we can start to get our temperatures back down to normal after the weekend. So yes, Highs will hit into the middle 90s once again before this is all over.
With that being said this could pop up a few scattered hit and miss showers / thundershowers across the area Saturday. Mainly Saturday evening / night into Sunday. Now yes, the National weather service does have the WLFI viewing area in that slight risk for severe come Saturday however I have gone through the weather models as of this afternoon and currently I'm thinking the best chance for severe if any would stay in the central IL, area. Still we cannot rule out that chance for some scattered showers / thundershowers here at home.
Now as I said above we will start to see a nice and much needed cool down to start the work week. Yes, temperatures will drop back into the middle 80s! This will still be around 5* degrees above our average for this time of year, However it will feel awesome after all these continued 90s over the past week. Take a look at the temperature model for Monday's highs below.MONDAY TEMPERATURE MAP...
See all the yellows from Lafayette IN, North? Yes, that is the 80s coming our way!! But how long will they last?? That's the question! ;) but will get to that another day. Right now lets check out your weekend weather cast.
Saturday we will start out dry with mostly to partly cloudy skies over much of the area. More clouds will move in that evening along with some scattered rain / thundershowers possible into Sunday. Watching for any severe development however at this time models indicate anything severe to be closer to the Central IL, area. (Still Watching Closely For Any Changes). Rainfall is looking between .10" and .25" inches. Highs will reach into the middle 90s once again as this warm front pushes through the area. Lows will only cool to 70* degrees. Winds will be calm between 10 and 15 mph with light gusts to 20 mph possible.
Heat Index.. Yes, Heat Index will again be at the dangerous levels between 100* and 111* degrees!
Sunday we will start out with some scattered rain / thundershowers which should give way to some mostly to partly cloudy skies by that afternoon / evening. Rainfall between .10" and .25" inches. Highs will be in the low 90s with lows falling into the middle 60s for a change. Winds will be light between 3 and 5 mph.
Heat Index.. Not as hot as Saturday's heat index however we could still see them hit into the upper 90s around 98* degrees.
We still have that "Excessive Heat Warning" in effect for > Carroll, Warren, Tippecanoe, Clinton, Fountain, And Montgomery, coutnies until 8:00pm EDT tonight.
