FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - High pressure has dominated in the sky above for the past couple of day, keeping the dry conditions around, and we’ll have one more day of it before our next weather system moves in.

Friday evening plans will be on the dry side, but temperatures will drop pretty quickly down into the 60s. So, you may want to take a sweater with you just in case. Temperatures will drop down into the upper 40s and low 50s by Saturday morning.

Saturday afternoon will see temperatures max out in the mid 70s, but the day will get cloudier as we approach the evening.

Our next weather system is forecast to move through on Sunday, bringing us the chance for some his and miss rain showers. Sunday won’t be a complete washout, and the rain really shouldn’t amount to much more than a tenth of an inch. So, if you plan to go to Johnny Appleseed festival on Sunday, having the umbrellas on hand won’t be a bad idea.

After Sunday, our rain chances for the next week ahead are basically zero. So, outdoor plans should be safe. Temperatures will start to swing from highs in the low 70s on Monday to highs in the low 80s by Wednesday, which is about 5 degrees or so above normal for this time of year. The low 80s look like they’ll hang around until next weekend.
