Rain and storms likely on Saturday
Tonight: The fog is thick out there! Expect foggy conditions to continue throughout the evening and into the overnight. As a result, temperatures are not really going to fall all that much. Most areas should remain rain-free until tomorrow morning.
Tomorrow: A strong area of low pressure will move pass northwest of Indiana bringing with it rain and some thunderstorms. The fog will lift as rain begins to overspread the area from the southwest. The entire area will be seeing rain by 9:00 AM. The winds will pick up dramatically as well as the rain begins to fall. A few gusty thunderstorms may accompany the rain. The most widespread rain will end by the afternoon, however, a few additional scattered showers and storms will be possible throughout the evening. When all is said and done, over an inch of rain is likely to fall across the area. Temperatures are expected to soar into the 50s to near 60 as winds out of the southeast will usher in warm and moist air.
7-Day Forecast: Once the rain and storms move out late Saturday, Sunday looks to be a very nice day. Southwest winds will continue to pump warm air into the area, keeping temperatures into the 50s. However, the cold front will pass through heading into Monday, bringing much colder temperatures throughout the work-week. There is a slight chance for rain and snow on Monday and a slight chance of snow on Friday. Otherwise, the middle part of the week looks to be mostly cloudy and dry. Stay dry this weekend!
