While conditions may have remained dry for our Tuesday, cloud cover lingering over from yesterday’s passing low kept temperatures from creeping out of the low 50s for many of us.
We find ourselves in a bit of a transition period between two low pressure systems; let’s shift our attention from Monday’s passing core of low pressure onto the organized low currently straddling the New Mexico/Texas boarder.
The potent core of low pressure has already warranted a Moderate Risk for Severe Weather for portions of Oklahoma and Kansas in anticipation of this evening’s potentially violent storms. Unfortunately, this same low is expected to supply us with our next round of showers and storms.
Fortunately for us however, the low’s effects on our region aren’t expected to resemble those of the Southern Great Plains’. The first hints of isolated rainfall should reach Greater Lafayette ahead of the advancing low around 8:00 P.M. ET Wednesday.
As the low inches its way closer to Greater Lafayette on Thursday, scattered rain showers may give way to periodic waves of showers and thunderstorms.
There are hints that some of the cells embedded within the lines may intensify into strong or even Severe thunderstorms that afternoon. As a result, the Storm Prediction Center of America has placed portions of our southernmost counties under a Marginal Risk for Severe Weather for Thursday afternoon and evening.
Following some periodic rainfall Friday, the last of the rainfall associated with our next round of low pressure should exit east of the viewing area that evening.
We’ll continue to keep you informed on the situation as it continues to evolve over the coming days.
