Warmer through the end of the week

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH)– A quiet Wednesday night is on tap around much of central Indiana.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Skies will stay mostly clear across much of the state. It’s going to be dry, cool and pretty comfortable tonight. Lows fall into the upper 50s and lower 60s.

THURSDAY: Look for lots of sunshine. Temperatures will climb into the upper 80s to near 90. Humidity values will increase a little, too. Feels-like temperatures will be closer to 90.

FRIDAY: While we do need the rain, it still looks like we’re going to be dry to end out the workweek. It’s going to feel like summer with highs in the middle to upper 80s. The Zone 8 forecast looks dry and mild, perfect for evening high school football games.

8-DAY FORECAST: It looks like much-needed rain will head this way for the weekend. The first part of Saturday looks to be dry with partly cloudy skies and highs in the middle 80s. A few isolated showers will begin to pop up late Saturday night. A cold front will move into the area on Sunday and bring us a good chance for some showers and thunderstorms.

If you’re heading to the home opener for the Colts, bring along the rain gear just in case.

Fall officially will arrive Monday, and it looks like temperatures will begin to drop. Highs will stay in the 70s early next week, right around normal for this time of year.
