MUNCIE, IN (NewsLink Indiana) -- This past week we have seen above average temperatures with highs making it into the lower 70s. However, that will change as we see an area of low pressure slowly make its way east into the Muncie area Friday night. The high for Friday and Saturday will continue to stay in the lower 70s, but along that is the chance for rain showers throughout most of Saturday and even the possibility of a few thunder storms. Behind the system is cooler temperatures that will enter the region on Sunday with a high of only 61 degrees, but the skies will have cleared for the most part giving you a mostly sunny end to the weekend. Monday we will continue to see clear skies with a high around 62 degrees. The skies on Tuesday will begin to cloud up as another front will make its way into our area from the northern plains. There will be a chance for rain on Tuesday night, but is likely for Wednesday when we could see anywhere from half an inch to 1 inch of rain fall between Tuesday night and the end of the rain on Wednesday and highs will be in the lower 60s. Wednesday evening the rain should move out of the area and we will see partly sunny skies on Thursday with only a high around 55 degrees.

MUNCIE, IN (NewsLink Indiana) -- It is going to be another sunny and mild day around here in Muncie, but things will be changing very soon. Once Saturday and family weekend comes around, temperatures will begin to slowly drop as a cold front will be making its way into our area. For Family Weekend, scattered rain will occur early Saturday morning and will continue through the afternoon. Rain will be moving out of the area during the Ball State football game vs. Central Michigan so it will not be around for the entire game. After the game, once the cold front does move through, temperatures will decrease rapidly and clearer skies will move in. Sunday will have clear skies with a high of 60, which is a bit cooler than average. For the beginning of the work/school week, temperatures will be back to around average in the lower-to-mid 60s for Monday and Tuesday. Then the rain will return on Wednesday with a high of 60.
Temperatures are a bit warmer today and are expected to rise into the mid 70s, and stay in the low 70s for the rest of the week. The weekend will be a little chilly, so be sure to bring a jacket to parents weekend activities and the football game. There's a few low chances of precipitation tomorrow, and Saturday morning. Other than that the fall temperatures will continue to treat us well here in Indiana. Weather forecaster Rachel Russell tells more in this forecast.
