SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) -

A number of locations reached into the 50s Tuesday afternoon.  Most, if not all of those areas were lacking snow pack at sunrise.  The overall trend is for the 50s on Wednesday and Thursday with low rain chances.  Rain chances on Thursday have come down while they remain elevated late Saturday night and into Sunday.  After tonight, morning temperatures will average around freezing and in a few instances, above freezing.  A weak clipper system will bring the clouds and a few showers early Friday morning before a stronger low pressure system moves across the area this weekend.  Snow chances will remain very low while showers will be the main precipitation type.  Data is suggesting another slight warm up into the 50s next Tuesday/Wednesday.

TUESDAY NIGHT: Clear skies and a calm breeze will allow temperatures overnight to again drop below the freezing mark. It remains chilly especially where snow remains on the ground. Low of 28 degrees. Winds SW 5-10 mph.

WEDNESDAY: More sunshine fills the skies as the snowpack continues to melt leading into the Thanksgiving holiday. Highs in the upper 40s with a light breeze from the south. A few more clouds possible in the evening as our next chance for rain inches closer to the region. High of 49 degrees. Winds S 5-10 mph.

THANKSGIVING: Mostly cloudy skies throughout the day. Most of the holiday remains dry. The chances for showers don’t come into play until late in the evening with the best chances overnight and into Friday morning. The showers will be light. No heavy rain expected. Highs will get into the lower 50s across the region, very mild for the end of the month. High of 51 degrees. Winds S 5-10 mph.

LONG RANGE: The shower chances will linger into Black Friday before things clear out into Saturday. The clear skies don’t last long. We have more rain chances late Saturday evening into Sunday. Even with the rain chances the temperatures will stay mild through the end of the month of November. Keep checking back for the latest details on your First Alert Forecast!
