SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) -

High temperatures will continue their weekend trend and warm into the 70s on Tuesday and Wednesday.  A strong cold front will take temperatures down nearly 20 degrees between Wednesday and Friday.  The front will be mostly dry with only a slight chance of rain on Thursday and Friday.  The dry air behind the front will bring the threat of frost to a large portion of the area Saturday and Sunday morning.  This will be a quick spell in the 50s as temperatures are expected to come back into the 60s next week.  The average high this time of year is around 68 degrees and after Wednesday it will be a good 5 or 6 days before we get back to that territory.

TUESDAY: Sunny. High: 70°. Low: 45°. Wind Light & Variable.

WEDNESDAY: Morning sunshine will give way to increasing clouds for the afternoon and evening hours as our next system moves in. High: 74°. Low: 52°. Wind SW 5-10 mph.

EXTENDED FORECAST: Our First Alert Weather team will have our eye’s on a cold front moving through Michiana on Thursday. With this cold front, showers will increase throughout Thursday and will send our temperatures on a noise dive to end next week. Expect a mostly cloudy, windy, and cold Friday behind the front with pockets of showers. Depending on cloud cover vs clear sky Friday night into Saturday morning area-wide frost is possible with even a light freeze for some locations.
