A Dry & Cool End To The WeekJuly 24th, 2014 at 5:33 pm by Pamela Gardner under Colts Forecast, Weather
Mild temperatures and clear skies dominate the forecast once again this evening as our very cool July continues. The downside to this forecast being that the cool and dry conditions will not stick around for the race weekend. Strong storms are possible this weekend as temperatures rise into the upper 80s and conditions become sticky once again as the humidity will rise right alongside those temperatures. The good news is a cool down should follow our weekend storms.
Another pleasant, but somewhat chilly evening is in store across central Indiana as skies will stay mostly clear in our overnight. Expect an overnight low to cool below 60 in most places, with a low of 58 here in the city,
Friday presents us with partly cloudy skies, low humidity, and a high right around 80 downtown.
The pleasant conditions of Friday are replaced by a stormy Saturday. Scattered thunderstorms are possible throughout the day, with a slight risk for severe storms already in place over almost the entire state of Indiana. We can expect to see highs in the mid to upper 80s across the state.
Our Brickyard 400 will be slightly cooler, but still just as humid across the Hoosier state, with afternoon highs in the mid 80s. Expect a high of 85 here in the city with scattered storms remaining in the forecast. A large area of storms is expected to move across Indiana during the morning hours, with more scattered areas of storms possible throughout the rest of the day.
Cloudy skies and scattered storms kick off a slightly cooler start to our work week as temperatures cool back into the upper 70s Monday. The humidity will also fall Monday as our cool July trend continues.
The rain comes to an end by Tuesday as partly cloudy skies and cool temperatures return to the state. Expect highs in the mid 70s Tuesday, warming back into the low 80s by late next week. Rain chances during this period should be small with partly cloudy conditions throughout the forecast.
