The Wednesday forecast includes that cool start.  It will also be a sunny start, with clouds building in the afternoon.  Temperatures will climb into the lower 70s by noon and into the upper 70s for highs.  A stray shower or storm is possible in the afternoon, but we are only expecting a couple on the radar.  Most of the day will be dry.

This weather pattern will last through the start of the weekend.  This means lows in the upper 50s and highs near 80 degrees.  It also means a mainly dry forecast, with just slight late day rain chances.

More summer-like air arrives early next week, with the return to the middle 80s.

Temperature Swings and Weekend Storm Chances

Posted By · July 24, 2014 at 3:10 pm

Central Indiana is getting another taste of Fall in July.  Temperatures on Thursday afternoon are only in the 70s and about 10 degrees cooler than average.  It will be a cool Thursday evening for our Indianapolis Indians at Victory Field and for the Lady Antebellum concert at Klipsch Music Center.  Temperatures will be in the lower 70s to start and then fall into the 60s as the sun sets.

event

Skies will be mostly clear Thursday night, with lows forecast in the lower and middle 50s.  It will be a cool start to Friday.  There is lots of sun in the Friday forecast, with highs in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.  You might need the jacket if you are going to IMS for the Brickyard 400 events on Friday morning.  You won’t need the jacket in the afternoon, but you will need the sunblock and sunglasses.  These are good things to remember if you are going to Colts Camp in Anderson on Friday afternoon.

lows event2 HIGHS

The weekend forecast is warmer, with highs in the range of 85-90 degrees.  There will also be a few complexes of storms.  The latest analysis and timing shows the first complex late Friday night and early Saturday morning.  This will mean some dry hours Saturday afternoon and evening.  Another complex is forecast for late Saturday night and early Sunday morning.  This complex should move out for a few dry hours on Sunday too.  A cold front arrives later Sunday and a few more storms will be possible.  This is just the latest analysis and there will be changes to the timing.  We will keep you updated leading up to the weekend and all weekend long.
