Finally, the biggest weekend in Indianapolis has arrived, and the forecast looks to cooperate for the most part. But there are a few time frames when less-than-perfect conditions will be in place.

Lows tonight will be in the low 50s or upper 40s with a few high thin clouds.

Daypart Tomorrow Full

One change to the forecast may involved adding a few more clouds to the morning forecast. Additional moisture from a system to the west may bring additional clouds or a few sprinkles through late morning, but that should dissipate quickly into the afternoon. Expect plenty of sunshine by the afternoon with highs in the upper 70s. Lows in the upper 50s.

3 Day Forecast

With a mix of clouds and sunshine in the morning, temperatures will warm into the 70s quickly by the start of the Indianapolis 500. Expect temperature sin the mid to upper 70s at the start of the race and partly cloudy skies. Highs are expected near 80.

A few showers or thunderstorms may develop during the afternoon to the south and west, but should not arrive until later in the afternoon or evening. While rain is not expected for the Indy 500, the radar will need to be monitored for developing storms in the latter half of the race.

Temperatures will again warm quickly to near 80 degrees by the afternoon, but unlike Sunday, scattered showers and thunderstorms will be more widespread. Not expected to be a washout, but a good idea to have your WISH TV Weather app ready to monitor any developing showers on radar if you plan to be outdoors!
