INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — We’re in for a warm Saturday with much needed rain to follow on Sunday.

Friday night: Mostly clear and cool once again for us tonight with lows in the mid 50s.

Saturday: Warmer with increasing cloud cover. A few showers may form Saturday night. Highs in the mid 80s.

Sunday: Rain becomes more widespread in coverage throughout Sunday. Some areas could see a break from the rain in the afternoon. There is also potential for a few thunderstorms.

Areas south of interstate 70 could even see the chance for a couple of stronger storms.

Highs will be cooler with numbers in the mid to upper 70s.

8-Day Forecast: Temperatures will stay in the 70s for Monday and Tuesday. A new upper level system will develop and bring additional scattered shower chances Tuesday and Wednesday. Then, very warm air looks to make a comeback for the second half of next week with highs eventually returning to the mid 80s at least.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — One more day of overhead wildfire smoke before our best chance for widespread precipitation moves in for the end of the weekend.


Air quality alerts are again in place for most of the state, as northeasterly winds continue to drag down smoke from the ongoing wildfires in Canada.

Outside of that, it should be another really nice day. Highs should hover around 80° with lots of sunshine this afternoon.

Friday night:

Still a bit hazy through the overnight, but otherwise quiet. Lows fall to the low/mid 50s.


Winds will shift ahead of a cold front, which should help to clean the air up a bit. We should see a lot of sunshine with highs in the mid 80s.


Low pressure with trailing cold front will take aim on the state Sunday – likely for the afternoon and evening hours, brining Indiana’s best chance for rain in almost 3 weeks. No severe weather is expected, and many areas around the state should see at least 0.5″ of rainfall for the day, while others could go as high as 1.0″ with some isolated higher amounts possible.

Highs top out in the mid 70s.

8 day forecast:

Dry air quickly moves in behind the Sunday storm system. Monday will be partly cloudy with highs in the mid 70s. Low pressure spinning east of Michigan could drag down a few isolated showers for Tuesday and Wednesday, but we’re not expecting widespread rain at this time. Temperatures will hover just below to near normal through the middle of next week. Could see an uptick in temps near the end of the extended.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — We had a perfect Thursday with comfortable and bright conditions. The end to the workweek will feature widespread haze with a good chance for rain to follow.

Thursday night: Cooler temperatures are in store for tonight with haze lingering around. Lows will fall into the low 50s.

Friday: Expect an average day in terms of temperature with lots of sunshine and hazy skies to close out the workweek. One caveat with Friday’s forecast is that air quality may worsen for some areas due to wildfire smoke becoming a little bit more dense in our region. Highs will rise into the low 80s.

Weekend: Saturday is set to be the warmest day of the weekend with highs reaching the mid 80s. By Saturday night, our attention will turn towards our next weather system. A few showers are possible Saturday night. The best chance for rain in this extended forecast arrives on Sunday. Rain coverage looks to be more on the widespread side with isolated storms possible. Sunday’s ran will cause us to only warm into the mid to upper 70s.

8-Day Forecast: Rain chances then become scattered next Monday through next Wednesday. Highs look to slip into the mid 70s to open up the new workweek before we quickly warm back into the 80s next Wednesday.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Air quality alerts in place for all of Indiana Thursdya.


Quiet day ahead. Northeast winds again will bring down smoke from ongoing wildfires in southeastern Canada. Some of that smoke could make it down to the surface. All of the state is under an air quality alert. Those with breathing issues and other sensitive groups should limit their time outdoors Thursday and Friday.

Otherwise, the rest the day looks great. Temperatures should be quite comfortable despite the hazy conditions, with highs in the upper 70s.


Mainly clear and again hazy. A little chilly in spots, too. Lows fall to the lower 50s.


Another round of hazy conditions, but nice temperatures. Highs top out in the lower 80s.


Winds will shift on Saturday, which should kick out the overhead smoke. Expect partly cloudy conditions and highs in the mid 80s.

Upper level wave along with a cold front will move in Sunday, bringing Indiana’s best chance for rain that we have had in weeks. Rain could arrive as early as Saturday night, but looking mostly to be a Sunday/Sunday evening event. Many areas could pick up around 0.5″ of rain.

8 day forecast:

Pattern finally looks to be a bit more active heading into next week, with several little waves moving through the Midwest over the coming days, bringing with it several rain chances. Temperatures will remain just below average into early next week, with a warming trend on tap for the middle of the week.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Much of Indiana worked in light rain early Wednesday morning before we transitioned towards afternoon sunshine and cooler air. We’ll keep temperatures close to normal the next couple of days with wildfire smoke still hanging around.

Wednesday night: A mostly clear and cool night will be on tap with lows in the mid 50s. Outlying areas may slip into the low 50s.

Thursday: Conditions will stay pleasant in terms of temperatures and abundant sunshine through Thursday. However, air quality will likely be slightly unhealthy for those with respiratory issues due to the wildfire smoke from Canada. Otherwise, enjoy a calm and dry day with highs in the upper 70s.

Friday: Temperatures will stay close to what is average for this time of the year on Friday. Mostly sunny skies, light winds, and hazy skies will also stay in place. Highs in the low 80s.

8-Day Forecast: We look to work in a one-day warmup Saturday with highs in the mid 80s. Then, we’ll transition towards our best chance for rain and a few storms since May 19. Showers may develop as early as late Saturday night before rain becomes more probable Sunday afternoon/evening. A few showers may persist into next Monday and Tuesday with highs back in the 70s.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Light showers will move out this morning, making for a sunny and comfortable end to the week.


Cold front marching through continues to squeeze out very light showers for the southern half of the state this morning. Unfortunately, it won’t be enough to ease up the developing drought conditions, with only very light measurable amounts for southern Indiana through late morning.

Clouds will decrease heading into the afternoon. Dry air will make for some very pleasant conditions settling in, with highs in the mid/upper 70s this afternoon.

Wednesday night:

Clear and cool overnight. Lows fall to the mid 50s.


Sunny and mild. Highs in the mid/upper 70s.


Sunny and slightly warmer. Highs in the lower 80s.


Dry and warm start to the weekend. Partly cloudy with highs in the mid 80s on Saturday. Upper level system with an attached cold front moves in on Sunday, bringing us the best chance for rain we have had in weeks. Mainly areas could get up to 0.5″ of rainfall to end the weekend, with some isolated higher amounts possible.

8 day forecast:

Active pattern possibly setting up for early next week, with a few rain chances Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures will return to the upper 70s/lower 80s for the first half of the week.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — We are monitoring the potential for a few showers Tuesday night into part of Wednesday. Then, the story for the remainder of the workweek will be pleasant air.

Tuesday night: Cloud cover will be widespread ahead of an approaching front tonight. Isolated to scattered showers are possible going into Wednesday morning.

Due to the extensive cloud cover, temperatures will be slightly warmer than last night with lows in the low 60s. Areas north and east of Indy will fall into the 50s.

Wednesday: Isolated to scattered shower potential remains with us through the morning hours Wednesday before the front leaves in the afternoon. Cloud cover will also gradually decrease through the second half of Wednesday.

Highs are expected to be cooler than Tuesday with numbers only in the upper 70s.

Thursday: Marvelous weather is expected for Thursday with bright skies, a northerly breeze, and comfortable air. This will be the best weather day of the week with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.

8-Day Forecast: Comfortable air will stick around through the end of the workweek with highs staying in the low 80s. A brief warmup will then swing in Saturday with temps in the mid 80s. This warmup will be followed up with a better chance for scattered showers and isolated storms starting late Saturday and continuing through Sunday. Sunday’s system looks to bring temperatures back down into the upper 70s going into next Monday. Another chance for precip could slide in by next Wednesday/Thursday.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The dry pattern continues for much of the week, with only spotty light rain chances possible for parts of the state leading into Wednesday morning.


Wildfire smoke continues to hover overhead this morning, with a few stations around the state reporting some of that smoke has reached the surface. Expect a hazy look for much of the morning before winds shift this afternoon, which should push the overhead smoke south of the area.

An approaching cold front will slowly move in from the north. Probably won’t have enough moisture or instability for any showers during the day, but clouds will likely increase later this afternoon.

Highs top out in the lower/middle 80s.

Tuesday night:

Previously mentioned front will push through the state, sparking a few showers across our area. Unfortunately, rain will be very light and spotty at best for the overnight hours.

Lows fall to the lower 60s.


Some lingering showers will be around for the morning hours in the wake of the cold front moving through – mainly south of I-70.

The rest of the day is dry and a bit cooler, with highs in the mid/upper 70s.

8 day forecast:

Quiet weather with gradually warming temperatures expected through Saturday. Still hopeful for our best chance for rain and storms in weeks by the end of this weekend. We could see showers as early as Saturday night, but looking more likely for Sunday.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A warmer Tuesday is ahead before a front moves through and brings temperatures back to near normal with a small chance for rain.

Monday night: Partly cloudy and cool with lows in the upper 50s.

Tuesday: Expect a warmer day under partly cloudy skies. Widespread haze from the wildfire smoke in Canada will taper off by the afternoon hours. Then, we’ll track the chance for a few showers Tuesday night. Highs in the mid 80s.

Wednesday: A few showers could linger into the first half of Wednesday before the front moves out of the state. Cloud cover will gradually decrease through the second half of the day. Highs in the low 80s.

8-Day Forecast: We will get to enjoy fantastic weather for the remainder of the workweek with highs in the low 80s, bright skies, and low humidity. A return to the mid 80s will then be on deck by Saturday before we work in our next chance for rain on Sunday.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Dry weather pattern continues with a much welcomed cool down to open the work week.


Wildfire smoke from fires in Quebec and other parts of southeastern Canada continue to filter down into the Midwest due to a northeast flow. Should not have an impact at the surface, but look for hazy skies and as a result, slightly cooler temperatures this afternoon. Highs top out in the upper 70s/lower 80s.

Monday night:

Mainly clear and comfortably cool. Lows fall to the upper 50s.


Another hazy day, but should be a bit warmer. Highs top out in the mid 80s.

A weak cold front moving through late Tuesday night could spark a few isolated showers. Definitely not the widespread rain we need, but a few lucky areas could pick up some light rainfall amounts.


Reinforcing shot of really dry air behind the front will keep our weather pleasant for the mid-week, with highs returning to the upper 70s/lower 80s.

8 day forecast:

Quiet weather continues through the end of the week. Some signs of hope this weekend in terms of rain, as the ridge that’s kept us quiet for the past week or so starts to break down. Shower chances could return as early as late this weekend, with possible activity continuing into next week.
