FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Showers moved through early in the day on Thanksgiving, making way for cooler air that arrives today. We’ll warm up somewhat by the weekend, but more rain and snow chances are in the forecast.

A few lake effect snow showers linger this morning, especially north of Fort Wayne. Accumulations should be minimal. Skies stay cloudy for most of the day, with some clearing possible by the mid to late afternoon hours. Temperatures stay pretty stagnant in the low 30s, not warming up much through the day. It’ll also be fairly breezy, with winds at 10-15 mph, gusting to 20 mph at times. That means it’ll feel like the low to mid 20s for most of the day.

Tonight, the clouds stick around. Temperatures drop to the mid 20s. If there’s any silver lining, winds will calm somewhat, helping it not to feel so bitterly cold.

Expect more clouds for the weekend, with Saturday bringing mostly cloudy conditions. Highs rise to the upper 30s to low 40s. Another weather system approaches by Saturday night, bringing the chance for rain and snow showers. Some of those showers linger into Sunday. This won’t be a widespread rain and snow event, with some spots likely not seeing any precipitation depending on how the system tracks.

Highs remain in the low to mid 40s for most of next week. Dry conditions are expected during the day pretty much all week long, with a couple overnight rain or snow showers possible Sunday night and Monday night.
