The morning will be the wettest part of the day, with rain being fairly steady. It looks like we just avoided some snow mixing in; that is staying north into Michigan. The first round of rain will begin to taper off between 9 and 10 AM. For the remainder of the day, showers will come and go. It will be quite cold for April, only in the low to mid-40s for highs. That will be the case for most of us, though Jay County (and maybe Blackford and Adams Counties) could sneak inside a warm front skirting to our south, which may push temperatures close to 60° briefly.
Some thunder may be heard in those areas with passing showers this afternoon as well. As the rain leaves this evening, temperatures will begin to fall into the 30s. After dark, some of the rain may change to sleet and/or snow. Flakes shouldn’t fall for too long but I wouldn’t be surprised if it leaves behind a dusting to a fraction of and inch of snow on the grass, especially north of US 24.
Sunshine returns tomorrow with temperatures still below normal, but upper-60s will be back on Tuesday.
