NOW: Today is the nicest day of the holiday weekend ahead of storms tomorrow

A few more thundershowers move through Michiana mainly north of US-30 before clouds break later this morning. Today is the nicest day of the holiday weekend with quiet weather, highs in the low 70s, and plenty of sunshine. Skies stay mainly clear overnight with lows falling into the mid 50s. Tomorrow starts dry, but a line of storms arrives shortly after noon with storm chances lasting into Sunday night. Sunday's storms come in two rounds: one in the early afternoon and another in the late afternoon/evening. Highs rise near 80 with plenty of moisture to feed into storms. The intensity of round 1 will affect the intensity of round 2 based on how much available energy the early afternoon storms "eat up". For the most part, the main threat with round 2 should stay further south into central Indiana which could be an issue for those going to the Indy 500. Damaging winds appear to be the main concern tomorrow, but all modes of severe weather are on the table. We'll trade scattered storms for scattered showers Sunday night into Monday morning. The second half of Memorial Day looks drier and cooler with highs in the lower 70s again. The shortened work week should be drier and cooler.

Today: Mostly sunny. High 72.
Tonight: Mostly clear. Low 54.
Sunday: Thunderstorms in the afternoon/overnight. High 80.
Monday (Memorial Day): AM showers. High 72.
