Morning Sun, Some Afternoon StormsBy
Spotty showers are possible this morning north-northeast of Indianapolis. Most of us begin with a good dose of sunshine, and expect many dry hours today for the opening of the Indiana State Fair.
Temperatures should quickly jump into the mid/upper 70s by midday and reach the low/mid 80s for the 2nd straight day. The latest FutureTrak 13 model shows the spotty shower chance N-NE of Indy into early afternoon. Better instability occurs during peak heating… and scattered showers/storms fire as a result.
Saturday will not be a washout, but rain chances remain in play until a cold front passes to the south of the area. That will not occur until late afternoon. So rain/storms are possible along the I-70 corridor until 3-4pm, and last longer in southern Indiana (5-6pm).
This front will usher in another round of very pleasant air for early August. Low humidity, sunshine and a refreshing northerly breeze sets the stage for a super Sunday!
Lows Sunday morning drop comfortably into the 50s. Sunshine and mid 70s will be a nice way to round out the opening weekend of the state fair!
In fact, late Saturday afternoon into Tuesday will be a great stretch of weather across central Indiana… with below to much below normal tempeartures expected.
