Drier air, sunshine and no rain is everything needed for a great Memorial Day weekend.

Today looks like a good day at the Motor Speedway. Expect low-to-mid 50s at the track this morning if you're heading out to Carb Day, and plenty of sunshine from start to finish, with comfortably mild highs in the middle 70s.

Another ideal set up for the 500 Festival Parade Saturday, with afternoon temperatures in the upper 70s.

The 500 forecast still looks great, and remember out coverage starts at 5 a.m. race day morning on WTHR.

Summer heat builds into the region just in time for Memorial Day and lasts well into the second half of next week.
