A line of heavy showers and severe thunderstorms that formed across northern Indiana and Ohio has held together and is moving into our region this morning. The storms are moving rapidly eastward and have produced heavy rain and high winds. Once past the I-95 corridor, skies may clear. If that happens and we see several hours of sunshine, then late this afternoon and early this evening when the cold front approaches, we could have another opportunity of seeing a line of heavy to severe storms. As with any severe thunderstorm, hail and isolated tornadoes may develop in addition to strong straight line winds and torrential downpours.

Cooler air with clearing skies are forecast overnight. And tomorrow will be much cooler. We are forecasting partly cloudy and breezy conditions with a 30% chance of a passing shower. Saturday is looking great with mostly sunny skies and highs in the lower 80s. Father's Day will be warmer and a bit more humid. Skies will be partly cloudy with highs in the mid 80s. There is also a 30% chance for scattered afternoon of evening thundershowers.
