Not quite as cold this morning, but a north wind will put a cap on much warming today. Look for a high of 79 and with humidity, not a factor, a trip to the Indiana State Fair today should be pretty pleasant. In fact, today will be the 10th day this month where the high temp. will be below the average high.

Look for the pattern to stay the same with a high of 80 on Friday afternoon.

There will be a more summer-like feel this weekend, with highs in the lower and middle 80s. We will be tracking a developing weather system. Right now the latest analysis has the steadiest rain staying north and west on Saturday. Scattered storms become more likely on Sunday.

The higher heat and humidity will linger into early next week. Storm chances are in the forecast on Monday and Wednesday. Highs will be in the middle 80s.
