Rain will move in late tonight, then overspread the region Thursday into Thursday night from west to east. There is a chance for thunderstorms, but severe weather is not expected. Rain may be moderate to heavy at times, so minor flooding is possible-especially in low lying areas, near streams, and along rivers. Chances for rain will continue through Friday and Saturday, especially along and east of I 69. Temps will fall through the day Thursday, starting out in the mid-upper 60s and falling into the upper 40s and 50s by mid afternoon for locations in the northwest. Highs Friday and Saturday will be in the upper 40s and 50s. Easter Sunday will be warmer, with partly cloudy skies and highs climbing back into the 60s and low 70s.

***NOTE: This post contains outdated information.*** Several rounds of moderate to heavy rain are expected over the next few days. The first will arrive this morning, followed by another one tonight, and a third one Friday night into Saturday. 2-3” is anticipated for some locations over this time period. However, exact amounts and placement remain uncertain at this time. This rain may cause minor river and areal flooding through the weekend. Temperatures will drop later today with cool conditions persisting through Saturday. Easter Sunday is still looking pleasant though, with dry conditions and highs near 70.
