Northwest Indiana residents likely won't see any sunshine until Saturday.

While the chances of rain are expected to decline over Friday, when it does stop sometime Friday afternoon, clouds will linger, according to the forecast from the National Weather Service.

Continuing rain caused a few problems in Porter County with the flooding of County Road 700 North in the area of Willowcreek Road and a downed tree blocking a roadway near the Silhavey/Vale Park roads roundabout.

The National Weather Service predicted rain would continue through Thursday evening. Heavier rain was likely to fall south of the Kankakee River.

The agency had issued a localized flooding risk throughout the area and along the Kankakee River in the Region. 

There is a 50 percent chance of rain Friday, mainly before 1 p.m. The forecast is calling for cloudy skies, with a high near 44 degrees and north northwest winds blowing at 10 mph to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph.

The sun will shine on Saturday, but will be short lived as the forecast calls for rain and gloomy skies to return Sunday and continue throughout the early part of the week.
