SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) -

High temperatures on Friday will be a few degrees warmer than Thursday and in the middle 60s.  A weak system will move through late Friday and very early Saturday morning.  This will be the first chance of isolated showers for the weekend with most showers gone by 9 am.  Saturday will be the warmest day with highs in the lower 70s before cooler temperatures and more rain chances come up on Sunday.  High temperatures in the 7 to 10 day period will average the 60s.

FRIDAY: A cold morning will begin the first official morning of fall. Then it will stay cooler through the day with a bit more sunshine. Just a few high clouds through the afternoon but temperatures will stay in the lower to middle 60s for most of the day. High of 64 degrees. Winds E 5-10 mph.

SATURDAY: An increase in clouds through the day with a few showers possible during the afternoon. The highs will get a little closer to the average, nearing the low 70s.

Winds shifting out of the south will create warmer temperatures into the weekend. High of 71 degrees. Winds S 5-10 mph.

LONG RANGE: Staying mild and unsettled through the weekend and into early next week. More scattered showers are possible Sunday through Tuesday. Highs will end the weekend in the lower 70s before taking a trip back into the 60s for much of next week.
