Rain began to move into Indiana just before sunrise and it is doing so in a slightly unusual way. The rain is working east to west. Radar has been picking up some impressive bands of heavy rain thus far, mainly south of Fort Wayne. These groups of heavy rain embedded within the larger scope of showers will continue to pass over northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio through the morning and into the afternoon.
Rain should be fairly steady through the afternoon as well. It won’t be until sundown or so when the showers will begin to break up and fade away. A little over an inch of rain will be possible to the southeast of Fort Wayne by tonight. In addition to the rain, temperatures will keep the outdoors unpleasant, with highs in the 40s accompanied by winds of 10-20 mph.
Fortunately, everything will change just in time for Easter. We’ll preview tomorrow’s weather on our evening newscasts.
