Last week, my alma mater, the Purdue Boilermakers, defeated the local school from Terre Haute, the Indiana State Sycamores. As a consolation prize, let’s give them a forecast.
At 1053AM, ET, Terre Haute was reporting clear skies with a temperature of 35 degrees. High pressure is lodged in the middle of the country, and while a westerly flow of the Lake was leading to some snow to the north, Terre Haute itself was well outside the lake effect fetch.
The subtropical jet is running through the southern part of the Continental US, assisting the ridge in the eastern part of the country, but the Arctic jet is strengthening, and a troughal exit region will develop over the Upper Mississippi Valley, as a cold front emerges at the surface. This is tied to an area of low pressure shifting through the Yukon and Northwest Territories. Showers, to be chased out by chilly air will develop on Sunday morning, with the late afternoon becoming clearer. High pressure will build in again for the holiday week.

A lot of cold air north of Terre Haute is leading to clouds, but there isn’t actually a lot going on up there.
