The weather pattern will change just in time for the 4th of July. There will still be some lingering rain through Friday evening especially south of Indianapolis. A gradual clearing trend will arrive overnight, with lows in the lower and middle 60s.
A few clouds will linger across the southern half of the state through early Saturday, but mostly sunny skies are in the forecast for Saturday afternoon. Highs will be in the lower 80s.
We are expecting mainly clear skies for fireworks and the Rolling Stones concert Saturday evening. Sunset is at 9:16, with temperatures in the lower and middle 70s through midnight.
The Sunday forecast includes a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will be in the lower and middle 80s on Sunday and in the middle 80s on Monday. The dry pattern will last through Monday.
Rain and storms return on Tuesday and the weather pattern stays a bit unsettled Wednesday through Friday. This will mean more clouds and more rain chances.
Have a happy and safe holiday weekend.
The weather pattern has settled down now that a cold front is moving through Indiana. Heavy rain dotted parts of Northwest Indiana earlier this morning, but for the most part, it has been dry in the Metro area.
Today, winds out of the northwest put a cap on our temperatures so our highs today and for the rest of the week will slowly go down. By the weekend our highs will top out in the 70s and today and tomorrow will be mainly dry. Look for another chance for storms both Thursday and Friday.
The weekend will provide us with a chance for rain and thunderstorms Saturday but Sunday and Monday will be dry and nice. The jet stream next week keeps us very mild.
Heavy rain will continue to fall across the southern half of Indiana Friday night. We are forecasting an end to the steady rain Saturday morning.
The back of edge of this weather system will be close enough to central Indiana for a few showers on Saturday. The best chance for those spotty rain chances will be across the eastern and southeastern sections of the state. A drier weather pattern arrives, with some clearing late in the day Saturday. This won’t last long. There will be a complex of storms moving across Illinois Saturday night. If that complex holds together, there will be a few showers or storms late Saturday night or early Sunday morning. We are still forecasting more dry weather than wet weather on Father’s Day, with highs 85-90 degrees.
What is left of that round of storms will be a boundary in the atmosphere and that will be the trigger for a few scattered storms on Sunday afternoon. Right now we are under a slight risk for severe weather, but the latest analysis has that boundary south of central Indiana. It is something we will watch closely.
It will be a chilly night across central Indiana, with low temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s. After some early morning sunshine on Wednesday, clouds will increase. It now looks like there will be enough moisture for a few showers Wednesday afternoon and evening. With increasing clouds and the chance for rain, temperatures will struggle. Highs will only be in the range of 55-60 degrees.
The clouds and rain chances will move out Wednesday night and a gradual warming trend is in the forecast for the rest of the week. Highs will be in the middle and upper 60s on Thursday, with a mix of sun and clouds.
We are forecasting mostly sunny skies on Friday and Saturday, with highs in the 70s. This is great weather for Carb Day and the 500 Festival Parade.

It will be warmer, with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
There were a couple of lines of showers and storms that moved across central Indiana on Friday night. There were also lots of dry hours on Friday afternoon. The weekend will be very similar. The SkyTrak13 Weather Team is tracking a warm and unsettled weather pattern through Monday. Lows will be in the 60s and highs in the 80s through the weekend. Timing the storms will be a bit tricky, but we think the best chance for rain and storms will come with afternoon and heating. Here is a look at the latest timing with FutureTrak13 for Saturday.
There will be some adjustments to timing, as we watch the complexes of rain and storms develop, so check back for updates. Remember you can take us along with you too, by downloading the SkyTrak13 Weather App.
