Tracking Rain and Warm Temps

December 30th, 2011 at 11:09 am by under Weather

Steady rain falling right now across the Wabash Valley. Scattered showers will continue throughout the day today, but we are not expecting much in the way of measurable rainfall. There is a 60% chance of rain for the remainder of the day as a slight chance of a stray shower and partly cloudy skies return later this evening.

We will stay warm for Saturday with temperatures near 50º. Cooler temperatures move in for Sunday and that cooling trend will continue into the beginning of next week. The forecast for the holiday weekend remains dry.
