First Alert Forecast: Cloudy and humid Friday
A few showers will be possible on Friday, otherwise the forecast stays dry through the holiday weekend
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) -
Rain chances still look slim on Friday, but indications point to some rain falling across the area. The being said, the humidity will be on the rise and it will feel much different on Friday than Thursday, even with cooler temperatures. Highs on Friday will depend on the cloud cover in the morning. Unlike the 93 degree Thursday, highs will register in the upper 80s with a heat index in the lower 90s where it remains dry. Rain chances will increase in the afternoon as a cold front approaches from the northwest. A lingering shower or two can’t be ruled out prior to sunset. It’ll be a comfortable and rain free 4th of July weekend with Saturday being the coolest in the lower 80s and Monday being the hottest at around 90 degrees. A slight pattern shift next week should open up more opportunities for rain in the area.
FRIDAY: Increasing clouds through the morning. Mostly cloudy for much of the day with a few rays of sunshine from time to time. Temperatures will rise into the lower 80s through the morning before rain chances increase around and after lunchtime. A cold front will move from northwest to southeast across Michiana between noon and 7pm. As the cold front crosses, the chance for scattered showers and a few thunderstorms are likely. Not a ton of rain but enough to give some a break from the very dry pattern we have been in. By the late evening the rain showers move to the south and east of the area and we will see things dry out and clouds clear overnight.
SATURDAY: A few clouds during the morning and then full sunshine through the rest of the day. Highs will be a bit cooler than the previous few days, highs back into the lower 80s. Humidity remains low to begin the long weekend. Still, lots of activities across the area and more great weather to go along with it. High of 84 degrees. Winds W 5-10 mph.
LONG RANGE: The rest of the 4th of July weekend will remain hot and dry. Sunshine will fill the skies with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. Our next chance of rain will come on Tuesday, after the 4th of July. Highs will remain in the middle to upper 80s with a few more chances for some showers through the end of next week. Keep checking back for the latest details on your First Alert Forecast heading into this very busy holiday weekend.
