FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - The sun was out in full force today, but even with it, highs only reached the 20s throughout the area. Starting tonight, our weather is going to take a very interesting turn. For starters, even though we will drop to 20 degrees tonight, it will happen earlier than normal. Overnight, temperatures will rise, and we will end up around 35 degrees by 8:00 in the morning. Even with that warm-up, when precipitation initially moves in during the overnight hours, it will be in the form of light freezing rain. As we go through the first part of the day Saturday, it will switch to rain. This, combined with the warm-up should prevent any significant ice accumulation. Into the day Saturday, we will have rain showers and temperatures in the 40s. Sunday and Monday will both be near 50 degrees, and both days will bring us more rain. Late Monday night into Tuesday, on the back side of the precipitation, it will become flurries as colder air returns. Tuesday, highs will be back into the 30s and they will stay there for Thanksgiving and rest of the week.
