The nearest weather station for both precipitation and temperature measurements is MARYSVI which is approximately 13 miles away and has an elevation of 57 feet (31 feet higher than Purdue Lake). Because the nearest station and this geographic feature may have differences in elevation and topography, the historic weather at the two separate locations may be different as well.
