TRF Fireworks Finale forecast

After a week of fun events spread across the city, the annual Three Rivers Festival concludes with its annual Saturday night fireworks finale. While the past week has seen periodic rain and storm chances, there are NO storms expected Saturday night.  Instead, conditions will be comfortable with temps around 70° by the time 10 pm arrives and the fireworks begin.  Humidity levels will be quite comfortable, too. Take some time and enjoy our Saturday night weather for this event (or whatever you have on your agenda) because, by the middle of next week, heat and humidity will be surging.

Friday Nites Live 7/14

As we sit here now in mid-July, the annual Friday Nites Live concert series at Jefferson Pointe is halfway complete!  Can you believe it? While rain has threatened many of this year’s evening concerts, that won’t be the case this week.

Update on Wed night/Thursday severe storm potential

With warm, humid air all around us contributing to atmospheric instability, plus a front positioned nearby and sinking south through the area between now and Thursday night, periods of rain and thunderstorms are possible.  These storms could very well squeeze out another 1″-3″ of rainfall in some spots as they move through.  Everyone should be on alert for potential flooding and torrential downpours with these storms.

Several rounds of severe weather impacted parts of the viewing area Monday night

Storms began rolling through earlier in the evening but quickly intensified around 8 o’clock bringing heavy pockets of rain, wind, a lot of lightning and even some reports of tornadoes.

Friday’s rainfall snapshot

As of our Friday night, all of the day’s rain and storms had exited.  The heaviest rainfall fell from northwest Indiana into Kosciusko County.  Within northeast Indiana, the highest totals were found in between Warsaw, Wabash and Huntington.
