INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Welcome to our pick of the week for weather in Central Indiana. It's hard to argue against sunshine and 70s, though there will be a stiff southwest breeze that gusts up to 30 mph this afternoon.
Enjoy the sun and mild highs today before the arrival of an upper level system Wednesday that brings clouds, showers, and daytime highs in the 60s. This cold-core low will be our daily weather driver heading into the upcoming weekend.
Expect more clouds than sun, rainy conditions at times, and temperatures to a be few degrees colder than average until late weekend. It should also be noted that there will be enough instability (due to much colder air aloft) to allow some thunderstorms and "hailers" to emerge during peak heating hours.
Slowly the core of this system pushes away from Central Indiana by Sunday afternoon to allow for a brighter sky. This leads into warmer stretch of days next week that could see a return of 80s to the state before another cold front in the October 7-9th time frame. Have a great afternoon - Sean Ash
