(Emily Kennedy/ABC 57 Meteorologist) Heavy rain is likely at times for the next several days. Scattered storms continue Friday evening. Storms today could be strong with gusty wind. More scattered showers and storms on Saturday with a couple of breaks in the rain possible. Again heavy rain is a threat which could lead to minor flooding. 2-4″ of rain is possible by Sunday evening. We are stuck in the rainy pattern through early next week.
In addition, the National Weather Service in Northern Indiana has issued a moderate swim risk for Lake Michigan because “wind, wave, and current activity will be increased in the vicinity of t-storms.” Areas in northwest Indiana could get anywhere from 3-7 inches of rain by the middle of next week.
