Mid-summer like temperatures continue into the weekend

Marcus’ 4 a.m. Thursday forecast

INDIANAPOLIS – Fall begins this weekend, but high temperatures will be closer to July numbers for the next several days.

This morning:

An upper level disturbance spinning over Illinois is sparking cloud cover, and even a few light showers in western portions of the state.

Temperatures are in the upper 50s/lower 60s across much of the state.


Low pressure spinning to our west will continue to spin out a few light showers through the day – mainly in western portions of the state. There’s an outside chance for a thunderstorm or two, but generally speaking, any rain chances will be relatively light.

Highs remain well above average, topping out in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Thursday night:

Low pressure will continue to drift north, and away from the state, allowing for gradually clearing. Lows fall to the lower 60s


Sunny and warm temperatures expected to end the week. Highs should reach the middle 80s.


Both days look great and very warm. Highs top out in the middle 80s Saturday, and lower 80s on Sunday.

8 day forecast:

Cooling temperatures expected much of next week. Still some uncertainty with rain chances Monday-Wednesday, as a low potentially travels north along the Atlantic coast. This could act as a blocking mechanism, and prevent systems moving through the Midwest during the period. We’ll hopefully have a clearer understanding of what that system will do by this weekend.
