Warm Weather Sticks Around

Posted By · May 6, 2015 at 11:23 am

It’s a beautiful day across central Indiana.  We are enjoying a lot of sunshine, and temps today will top out around 84.  Our normal high this time of year is 70, so we are well above average.  We can’t rule out an isolated shower this afternoon, but most spots will remain dry.  The Indians game kicks off at 1pm, and the weather should be beautiful!

wednesday today

Pollen levels remain high through Friday, but rain on Saturday will help bring the levels down.
