Mostly sunny skies are in the Friday forecast, with highs in the 70s. Look for a wonderful night tonight for the Indians game or the Neil Diamond concert at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The weekend will start warm and dry too.  Highs on Saturday will be in the middle and upper 70s, with some sun.  This dry start to the weekend is great news for the Race for the Cure Saturday morning.  This is at Military Park in downtown Indianapolis and there is still time to register.  Temperatures will be in the 50s to start and in the middle 60s by noon on Saturday.

The end of the weekend is a bit more tricky.  We are tracking a developing weather system that will bring rain and storm chances back to central Indiana on Sunday..  The chance for rain and storms will last into Monday, with highs on Sunday and Monday in the 60s.  The long range temperature trend looks even cooler.

Wet Start Today

Posted By · April 16, 2015 at 3:19 am

We have had rain and thunderstorms this morning and the ride to work and school will be on wet pavement today. Despite the rain, we’ll warm up to 68 degrees, 4 degrees above average later today. It is however, another example of an above average high temperature in what has proven to be a mild month so far.

DaypartIndians

Look for two more days with highs in the lower 70s.  These are in the forecast for Friday and Saturday.  Both days will be dry.

The weekend outlook is a little more uncertain with an upper level weather system.  We have made a change to Sunday, because it looks like the system will get here for the end of the weekend.  That change will include rain chances on Sunday. The chance for rain will linger into Monday and cooler air is back for next week, with highs in the 50s on Tuesday and Wednesday.

We are tracking a couple of days in the lower 70s.  These are in the forecast for Friday and Saturday.  Both days will be dry.

We have been analyzing closely the weekend and trying to track a tricky upper level weather system.  We have made a change to Sunday, as it appears the system will get here for the end of the weekend.  That change will include rain chances on Sunday.  We will keep you updated on the timing, just in case you have outdoor plans for Sunday.  The chance for rain will linger into Monday and cooler air is back for next week, with highs in the 50s on Tuesday and Wednesday.
