Our stretch of damp and dreary weather has come to an end as high pressure builds in for today.

Expect skies becoming partly cloudy this afternoon as temperatures warm into the upper 60s/lower 70s.

Indianapolis has picked up 1.34" of rainfall in the first 13 days of May -- while this is seasonally close to the average, the consistent damp weather has caused wet grounds making it difficult for farmers to plant.

The good news is the pattern is shaping up to be drier over the next several days.

The best chance of rain looks to be late Thursday into Friday morning as a frontal system moves in.

While a weak disturbance is set to impact Central Indiana on Wednesday -- moisture will be rather limits decreasing the overall rain chance.

We start the day with temperatures in the 40s with increasing clouds and a stray shower.

Temperatures recover to near 70 under a mixture of sun and clouds with a spotty shower possible.

Spotty showers will be possible through the afternoon before the sky clears again in the later evening hours -- here's 5 PM.

We're back to mostly clear conditions for Thursday. Morning lows isn the 50s and much warmer highs in the upper 70s.

The warming trend continues into the weekend with highs jumping over 10° above average.

After early Friday, there's another shot of rain moving in later in the day on Sunday. This is good news for Indy 500 Qualifications this weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with a mainly dry forecast for the weekend.

The pattern stays unseasonably warm into the start of next week.
