Rain and Thunderstorms to Start the Weekend

A weather system is expected to stall out over Indiana on Saturday.  Rain will begin to enter the region through the overnight. Temperatures will remain quite mild, with lows only falling to around 50°.  Winds will be increasing out of the southwest throughout the night.

Saturday will feature widespread rain and a few thunderstorms.  Up to an inch of rain is possible.  The weather system will finally begin to exit the area Saturday night.  A few snow showers cannot be ruled out as temperatures fall dramatically behind the cold front.  A few of these rain and snow showers could linger into the morning on Sunday, but skies are expected to clear throughout the day.  It is going to be a very chilly end to the weekend for this time of year, with temperatures struggling to get out of the 30s.  High pressure returns to the area to open up the workweek.  A nice warming trend is expected throughout next week.  Our next rain chance will not arrive until later next week.
