Very warm Friday, beautiful weekend weather ahead

Marcus’ 4 a.m. Friday forecast

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Temperatures will be running almost 10° average for the last full day of Summer.

This morning:

Some pesky clouds are still hanging around this morning, thanks to an upper level low spinning over central/northern Illinois. That system is set to move north/northeast and away from the state later this morning.

Temperatures are again very mild, with most areas in the low/middle 60s.

Dew points are interesting this morning – much of our state is running dry, with dew point temperatures in the mid 50s. Back into Illinois, it’s noticeably more muggy, with dew points in the low/mid 60s. We shouldn’t see those higher humidity values creep into our state today, as dry air should win out.


Any cloud cover from this morning should mix out as we move through the day. Expect mostly sunny conditions with highs in the middle 80s.

Friday night:

All good for week number 6 of high school football. Kick off temperatures should be right around 80°.

With dry air in place and skies clearing, temperatures will be running a bit cooler overnight.


Slight cooler temperatures for both days this weekend, but we will be quite comfortable. High should hover around 80° to kick off the weekend.


We’ll likely see a few more clouds to end the weekend, but we still should remain quite nice, with highs in the middle/upper 70s.

8 day forecast:

I’m keeping the start of the work week dry on Monday. We still have our slight chance of showers for Tuesday and Wednesday with a trough digging through the state, although rainfall amounts at this point seem to be rather low.

The rest of the 8 day is quite and typical for the later portions of September.
