Looking across the next 7 to 10 days, only a few days will have high temperatures at or below average. A majority of the days this week will average the middle to upper 70s especially going into the weekend. A strong low pressure system will cross the area on Wednesday bringing a decent amount of rainfall, but low severe weather threat. As the Senior PGA tees off on Thursday, the remaining part of the system will be moving out. They may encounter a few delays on Thursday, otherwise fantastic conditions await on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Memorial Day is timing out to be the warmest of period with highs only a few degrees from 90. More rainy weather is on the way by next Tuesday.

TUESDAY: Clouds will increase throughout the day ahead of our next weather system arriving Tuesday night. High: Near 70° Low: 58°. Wind: E 5-15 mph.

WEDNESDAY: A warm front and low-pressure system will move through Michiana. This will give way to a wet, muggy, and breezy day. Off and on showers to steady rain at times can be expected. Lightning will be possible, but NO severe weather is expected. High: Near 72° Low: 58°. Wind: S 15-30 mph.

THURSDAY: After a warm front lifts through on Wednesday our attention then turns to a cold front moving through on Thursday. Timing of the front will determine how long shower chances linger throughout the day. The highest chance of rain on Thursday will come in the morning hours followed by some sunshine by late day. High: 66° Low: 50°.

MEMORIAL WEEKEND FORECAST: Dry conditions are setting up for the holiday weekend with just a slight chance of a passing shower or T-storm to end the weekend. Temperatures will rise back into the 80s with overnight lows in the 60s. Expect most days to feature a breeze and a humid, summer feel to the air.
