  • 10/01/2016 - Valid for 16 UTC - Forecaster: W. Logan Downing
    • Winds are currently out of the south, around 3-5 mph. Temperature and dewpoint temperature are both at 58 F. Currently, it is overcast
      and expected to continue to be overcast throughout the day as a low pressure system persists over Indiana. Accompanying this low
      pressure system is the expectation of showers throughout the day, with the possibility of thunderstorms. The afformentioned low
      pressure system is expected to move out of the Lafayette area early Sunday.
  • 10/06/2016 - Valid for 13 UTC - Forecaster: Heather Sussman
    • Currently, the air temperature and dew point temperature are both 62 °F, with winds from the east at 5 mph with scattered clouds present. Showers are occurring to the north of the Purdue area, but will continue to move toward the northeast and should not affect West Lafayette. As the day progresses, cloud cover will decrease slightly, leaving partly sunny skies for the rest of the day. Temperatures today will reach a maximum in the lower 80s as this unseasonably warm weather continues. Tonight, conditions will be mostly clear, with a low temperature in the lower 60s.
  • 10/07/2016 - Valid for 22 UTC - Forecaster: Will Smith
    • At the present moment, conditions are overcast, with an air temperature of 70 °F, dew point of 52 °F, and winds blowing out of the northwest at around 17 mph, with gusts up to 23 mph. A band of clouds from a weak cold front west of Purdue will move eastward, bringing partly, to mostly cloudy conditions later this evening. Behind this front is an area of high pressure, that will progressively move eastward, bringing cooler, and much clearer conditions overnight, and into this weekend.
  • 10/08/2016 - Valid for 23:30 UTC - Forecaster: Will Smith
    •  At the present moment, sky conditions are clear, with an air temperature of 64 °F, and dew point of 41 °F, and winds blowing out of the northwest at around 6 mph. A weak high pressure had moved over the area overnight, and early this morning, resulting in clear skies, and cool temperatures. The rest of today, and into tonight, sky conditions are expected to be clear, with nighttime temperatures in the mid 40s.
  • 10/10/2016 - Valid for 02:00 UTC - Forecaster: Will Smith
    • At the present moment, sky conditions are clear, with an air temperature 60 °F, and dewpoint of 47 °F, and winds blowing out of northeast at around 10 mph. The same area of high pressure that has moved over the area yesterday is still currently over the area, and will continue to stay over the area, producing clear to mostly clear skies tonight. Night time temperatures area expected to get down into the mid 40s. A small trough to the west has formed in the Great Plains, and is expected to move over the area in the next several days.

  • 10/01/2016 - Valid for 16:30 UTC - Forecaster: W. Logan Downing
    • The next few days are expected to be relatively quiet with regards to active weather events, barring Sunday. We're expecting a slight
      chance for precipitation throughout the day Sunday, likely stemming from the exiting low pressure system. A ridge is expected to start
      building in throughout the week. A low pressure system to the west, currently expected to track well to the north of us through 
      Saskatchewan and Ontario, will likely help build the previously mentioned ridge, boosting temperatures throughout Indiana.
  • 10/06/2016 - Valid for 13:15 UTC - Forecaster: Heather Sussman
    • During the day on Friday, temperatures will be in the upper 70s and sunny conditions will be present until the late afternoon as a slight chance of showers increases at that time and during the evening hours. This is a result of a cold front that will move into the area. After the cold front passes through the area, temperatures will be noticeably cooler. Daytime temperatures will reach the mid to upper 60s and nighttime temperatures will be in the upper 40s. Dry conditions and plentiful sunshine are expected throughout the weekend.
  • 10/08/2016 - Valid for 00:00 UTC - Forecaster: Will Smith
    • On Saturday, an area of high pressure will move into the area, bringing with it cooler, and clearer conditions. The temperature tomorrow will reach around the mid 60s, winds will reach gust speeds of up to 25 mph, and the skies will be clear. Over the next several days, this area of high pressure will move slowly eastward, resulting in weather similar to Saturday's. After Saturday, temperatures will slowly increase to the lower 70s. It isn't until around Monday night/early Tuesday when a small trough moves eastward through the central U.S, bringing cloudier conditions, and the potential for rain mid to mid-late next week.
  • 10/08/2016 - Valid for 23:30 UTC - Forecaster: Will Smith
    • Over the next several days, weather patterns will be dominated by a ridge of high pressure over the central U.S. Temperatures will slowly creep up to the lower 70s over the next several days, and sky conditions are expected to be clear to mostly clear. Behind this ridge, a small trough is expected to develop, and move through Tuesday and Wednesday, resulting in cloudier conditions, and the potential for rain late Wednesday.
  • 10/10/2016 - Valid for 02:00 UTC - Forecaster: Will Smith
    • Over the next several days, the area of high pressure that has been over the area will move further eastward, continuing the trend of clear to mostly clear skies, daytime temperatures in the lower to mid 70s, and nighttime temperatures in the mid 40s to the lower 50s. On Tuesday, a weak trough is expected to move over the area, increasing chances of precipitation for late Wednesday. Following this trough is a weak ridge, which will bring flow from the northwest, decreasing the temperature for Thursday to the lower 60s.

  • 10/01/2016 - Valid for 17:15 UTC - Forecaster: W. Logan Downing
    • A cold front, associated with the low pressure in Ontario, is expected to push through the area mid-day on the 6th. Precipitation is
      expected as a result of the frontal passage. Temperatures are expected to drop significantly and stay low due to a trough that begins
      to build in late Friday. Due to the uncertainty at this range, a slight chance of precipitation is the best that can be said for this time
      period.
  • 10/06/2016 - Valid for 13:45 UTC - Forecaster: Heather Sussman
    • After the weekend, temperatures will begin to increase into the lower 70s due to a ridge building up and producing southerly flow. Sunny, dry conditions should persist throughout the upcoming week. Nighttime and early morning temperatures will range from the lower to mid 50s. Overall, a beautiful stretch of fall weather is expected.
  • 10/08/2016 - Valid for 00:00 UTC - Forecaster: Will Smith
    • A small trough is expected to move through Wednesday, the 12th, increasing temperatures slightly to the lower, to mid 70s. With this, a slight chance of precipitation is possible for late Wednesday, and early Thursday. After this trough, a weak ridge will likely move through Friday, reducing temperatures to the mid 60s, and causing partly cloudy conditions.
  • 10/08/2016 - Valid for 23:30 UTC - Forecaster: Will Smith
    • After a small trough moves through Wednesday, a ridge of high pressure is expected to move over the area, bringing air from the north-west, slightly reducing temperatures down to the mid 60s on Thursday the 13th. Moving into Friday, the ridge moves slightly further eastward over Indiana, resulting in temperatures to change very little several days following Thursday. Sky conditions are also expected to be partly cloudy.
  • 10/10/2016 - Valid for 03:00 UTC - Forecaster: Will Smith
    • A weak ridge moves into the area Thursday, lowering daytime temperatures to the lower 60s, reducing chances of precipitation, and causing sunnier conditions for Friday and Saturday. Following this ridge, a trough is expected to move over the area on Sunday, increasing chances of precipitation, and increasing daytime temperatures to the mid-70s for Sunday.
