FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Some locations got a bit of rain Friday night, but the rest of the holiday weekend is on track to be warmer and dry.

Overnight, we’ll see a mix of clouds and clear skies. Temperatures drop to the low 60s. Combined with low humidity, it will be quite comfortable.

The humidity stays relatively low for Sunday (dew points in the 50s). Temperatures however rise to the upper 80s under mostly sunny skies. A few 90° highs aren’t out of the question.

A bit more cloud cover will be in place Monday (Independence Day). I expect most of the day to be dry, with partly cloudy skies and highs in the low 90s. It will be a bit more humid, and by the end of the day, we could see a stray storm or two. At the moment, this rain chance doesn’t look high enough to warrant cancelling any plans.

Higher chances for scattered showers and storms arrive midweek. A front will stall out over the region, bringing chances for scattered storms Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Highs will hover in the upper 80s to low 90s. This setup doesn’t look conducive to stronger storms, so severe weather isn’t expected.

The front should clear out of the region by next weekend, ushering in cooler weather, with highs set to drop to the low to mid 80s.
