Lows will only fall into the upper 50s to low 60s.

8-Day Forecast: The warming trend continues into Friday with hot and windy conditions expected. Much of the day is expected to be dry before another round of rain and storms move in mainly after sunset. We are still watching the potential for stronger storms as well during Friday night. Rain and storm chances stick with us into our Saturday, and this could affect Indy 500 qualifying. Temperatures are set to quickly slip into the upper 60s by Sunday with dry weather sticking around into next week.
