SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) -

Temperatures will warm back closer to average on Wednesday and especially on Thanksgiving.  Of the nearly two feet of snowfall that came down this past week, very little will be left by Thursday and Friday.  High temperatures will average the 40s while morning temperatures will come just above freezing for a few nights.  There are two systems that could bring rainfall to the area.  The first will come through with a weak clipper system on Wednesday and Thursday.  The next one will pass through towards the tail end of the weekend.  The overall forecast through the next 7 to 10 days includes some rain, no snow and temperatures in and around average.  The next significant cold snap could be hear by the first week of December.

TUESDAY: Snow continues to melt with highs reaching back into the lower 40s in Michiana under mostly sunny skies. The breeze will die down a bit but continue from the south. That allows the temperatures to stay mild through the middle of the week. High of 42 degrees. Winds S 5-10 mph.

WEDNESDAY: More sunshine fills the skies as the snowpack continues to melt leading into the Thanksgiving holiday. Highs in the middle 40s with a light breeze from the south and west. A few more clouds possible in the evening as our next chance for rain inches closer to the region. High of 45 degrees. Winds SW 5-10 mph.

LONG RANGE: A few showers are possible on Thanksgiving evening and a few more showers will be likely as a system passes just to our south and east on Black Friday. Temperatures will stay mild through the weekend and into early next week. By the beginning of December, it looks like the chilly air and chances for rain and snow return to the region.
