A few very isolated showers brought about a quick quarter of an inch of rainfall on Wednesday.  High temperatures were able to get back to around 80 degrees and we expect a similar temperature trend on Thursday.  Morning temperatures will start in the upper 50s and low 60s before warming to the upper 70s for the afternoon.  A repeat of Wednesday’s isolated shower situation isn’t expected and another dry day is in the forecast on Friday.  The weekend forecast still looks a little wet late Saturday and into early Sunday morning.  Being a system supported by the jet stream, rain chances will stay in the forecast for most of Saturday night and through Sunday.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear and turning cooler. The temperatures will fall into the upper 50s by the morning. Staying very comfortable. Low of 58 degrees. Winds N 5-10 mph.

THURSDAY: More sunshine fills the skies as our nice stretch of weather continues. Highs remain in the lower 80s through the afternoon with a light breeze. High of 82 degrees. Winds W 5-10 mph.

FRIDAY: A very nice and comfortable end to the week. Temperatures will get into the middle 80s by the afternoon. Staying comfortable as you head out and enjoy the return of Friday Night Football across Michiana! High of 84 degrees. Winds W 5-10 mph.

LONG RANGE: Increasing clouds during the day on Saturday with some scattered thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will be in the middle 80s with elevated humidity. On Sunday Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible throughout the day under mostly cloudy skies. This is as the storm system moves across Michiana. On Monday some showers could linger, potentially even a brief shower into Tuesday before some sunshine will fill the skies again. Temperatures will remain constant between the upper 70s and the middle 80s. Keep checking back for the latest details on your First Alert Forecast.
