NOW: Weekend heavy rain makes big dent in Northern Indiana drought

The deluge of rain that hit Michiana over Mother's Day weekend put a huge dent in the drought, according to the latest drought monitor released Thursday.

For the first time in 2021, Northern Indiana has no areas of moderate drought. Both the area of moderate drought and the area under abnormally dry conditions were cut in half, compared to last week.

Unfortunately, southwestern Michigan's drought marches on. Last weekend's rain largely missed Michigan, with the heaviest amounts showing up along and south of US-30.

Forecast rain amounts aren't promising for any section of Michiana heading into next week, with rain chances on Sunday and Monday likely producing less than a quarter of an inch of rain.
