Soggy Friday Turning Into Great Mother's Day Weekend

First, though, today is turning out to have a mix of sun and clouds with a high in the mid 60s. There will be a 100 percent chance for rain after 8 p.m. We'll continue fine-tuning and tweaking the 7-day forecast as newer computer models come in over the next several days. Saturday temperatures will remain more than 50 degrees. Gusts of 25mph are expected inland, and 30-35mph along the Jersey Shore. We'll hit 70 in Indy and areas south, however, closer to Kokomo and Marion temperatures will be a bit cooler and in the 50s and 60s.

This evening stays cloudy with isolated showers becoming more widespread as the night wears on. Winds S 5-10 miles per hour.

Sunday will be cloudy and warmer with a threat of rain. Northeast wind 9 to 11 miles per hour becoming southeast in the afternoon. We are predicting at least a 50% chance of precipitation. Northeast wind 7 to 13 miles per hour. "Some areas will see 1-2" of rain, with rivers and streams no doubt rising in the face of that and our overall damp pattern.

The rain and chance of storms continues through the evening and overnight. Low around 48. Rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
