Cooler air expected Wednesday night

Spotty light showers will move through overnight mainly north of I-70.

Thursday's high temperatures will probably not rise out of the 50s, making it the coolest day here in five months, dating to mid-May.

We have already seen a few more rain showers across Michiana, and we are likely to see more showers and thunderstorms as we move into the afternoon and evening hours.

Six of the first 11 days in October have recorded highs of 70 degrees or higher, and so far the overall monthly temperature is averaging 5 degrees above normal. While a few spot showers will be possible, the bigger impacts will be elevated winds and cooler temperatures for the end of the week. Cold air arrives behind the front.

Dry and warm conditions are expected for Friday night. The chance for showers or storms remains on Thursday for the high elevations, but we'll start drying out for the lower elevations. Low temperatures Saturday morning should be in the middle 60s.

A broken line of showers and storms will zip across the sky late Wednesday night and early Thursday.

Going through this afternoon, the clouds will be giving way to sunshine. Temperatures rebound into the afternoon, topping out in the lower to middle 60s.
