Temperatures have been held in the 60s most of the day helping to limit the severe weather potential for the area tonight. A line of thunderstorms will work from the west to the east after 9pm tonight. The line will take a few hours to completely clear the area and overall rainfall totals will be around 0.50″. For the rest of the week, rain chance will be low and temperatures will be falling to the lower 60s by the weekend.

MONDAY NIGHT: Cloudy with thunderstorms possible. A front will roll through during the late evening with thunderstorms, a few could produce some strong gusty winds. There is a low threat for severe weather. Thunderstorms will come through between about 9am and 2am. Then a few sprinkles will be left into early Tuesday morning. Low of 49.

TUESDAY: Scattered sprinkles during the morning giving way to a few scattered showers in the afternoon and evening, Cloudy and cooler. High of 59.

WEDNESDAY: The sunshine returns to Michiana. We have a mixture of sun and clouds after that rain gets out. We dry out and remain cooler. High of 57.

LONG RANGE: The pattern through the rest of this week looks very unsettled. This keeps rain chances with us through Mother’s Day weekend. The next chance of showers comes Thursday into Friday as another smaller system comes through the area. Then over the weekend we will likely see more showers move through. Temperatures likely remain below average, in the 50s and lower 60s through early next week.
