There is only a slight chance for a stray shower or storm this weekend, but most of central Indiana will be dry.

Lots of Sunshine Just in Time for the Weekend

Posted By · June 13, 2014 at 4:11 pm

It will be a clear and mild Friday evening across central Indiana. Early evening temperatures will be in the lower 70s. Once the sun goes down, temperatures will fall fast. We are forecasting low temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s by early Saturday morning.

LOWS

After that cool start, expect lots of sunshine on Saturday afternoon. Temperatures will be in the 60s by mid-day and we are forecasting highs in the range of 75-80 degrees.

PLANNER HIGHS

Sunshine stays in the forecast through Sunday. Sunday is Father’s Day and it will be sunny and just a bit warmer, with highs in the range of 80-85 degrees.

FutureTrak 13 is clear through Sunday night. A developing weather system will trigger a line of storms to our west. If it holds together, a stray storm will be possible early Monday morning. That system will be close enough for scattered storms on Monday afternoon.

RPM

We are tracking heat in the 7 day forecast, with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees next week. After Monday, the best chance for a few storms will be later in the week.
