Spring Weather Roller Coaster in Northwest Indiana: Rain, Thunderstorms, and Snow Possible Ahead of Eclipse


Share post:

Chicago, IL – Northwest Indiana residents are buckling up for a meteorological roller coaster as the National Weather Service signals a week packed with unpredictable spring weather leading up to the solar eclipse on April 8. 

The forecast kicks off with rain and thunderstorms, some potentially severe with hail, especially south of US-24, creating challenging road conditions. By midweek, a dramatic temperature drop brings the possibility of snow, a stark contrast to the preceding mild conditions.

Localized flooding risks are rising, particularly along roadways south of Interstate 80, where heavy downpours are expected. The fluctuating temperatures—from today’s highs in the 50s and low 60s to midweek’s forecasted upper 30s and 40s—underscore the volatile nature of spring in the Midwest. 

The week’s end looks promising for eclipse enthusiasts, with the NWS projecting clearer skies by Saturday, ensuring optimal conditions for the astronomical event. Motorists are advised to stay vigilant and keep abreast of the latest weather updates on weather.gov.
