Another beautiful morning here, with clear skies, comfortable temperatures, and dry air across most of the state.


Temperatures will turn warmer today as winds come out of the south and west. Initially, the dew point temperature should be relatively low, but as we progress through the afternoon, we’ll likely turn more muggy. High temperatures will top out into the mid-80s this afternoon.

High temperatures will only top out into the lower 80s Thursday afternoon.

8 day forecast:

Storm chances could continue into Friday, but the best opportunities look to be south and east of central Indiana for Friday morning and afternoon. Temperatures were turned back to the mid-80s for Friday. The rest of the holiday weekend actually looks pretty nice, with low humidity and near-normal temperatures. Highs will top out into the low 80s on Saturday and the mid 80s on Sunday. Rain chances look to make a return early next week, with Monday and Tuesday temperatures topping out into the mid-80s.
