Arguably some of the best weather across the country is right here in central Indiana. We’re enjoying sunshine and 60s with just a few mid-level clouds. Your evening will be absolutely beautiful as temperatures hang in the 60s through 11pm.


The only complaint is medium to high levels of pollen that will remain in that range heading into the weekend.



Highs Tuesday jump into the 80s due to the passage of a warm front and wind shift to the southwest… with another dose of abundant sunshine.


Late tomorrow (toward sunset) thunderstorms may develop in far northern Indiana near Lake Michigan. It’s possible the leftovers of these storms may sneak into central Indiana after midnight and predawn Wednesday. At this point confidence is low on this time period.


The heat peaks Wednesday with highs in the mid-80s and an increase in humidity. Much of the area is under a Slight Risk for severe weather Wednesday with damaging wind the most likely outcome of any storms that develop. Timing and exact location of development remain highly uncertain, and not everyone may see storms that day. Stay tuned for updates.


Storm chances diminish Thursday as a frontal boundary sinks south of the Ohio River. This sets the stage for a very pleasant stretch of weather that leads into Indianapolis 500 weekend.


Current modeling continues to support a mostly sunny set up for Carb Day, the Parade and Race Day… with highs ranging from the mid-70s Friday to near 80 Sunday. We’ll continue to update the next few days for any changes.


Memorial Day looks warm and more humid with highs well into the 80s with hazy sun. Have a great evening – Sean Ash
