“Sunny and 80°... back to you!”Sounds like a short forecast, and it is. High pressure is in control over wide swath of the Great Lakes and Ohio River Valley, producing day after day of sunshine, dry conditions, and a bit of breeziness. About the only clouds that can form are high, wispy cirrus clouds and we may see a few of those today. But for the most part, sunny skies will rule and our high temperature will top out around 79°.

But before we get to that warm high, we’ll start the day with very chilly conditions. Temps are in the low 40s in many places around Michiana, and possibly in the high 30s in a few spots.It’ll be cool again tonight and tomorrow morning, but not as chilly as this morning. Overnight low tonight should be around 53°.Sunday offers a mix of clouds and sunshine. Highs will be in the lower 80s. Should be a perfect Indy 500 race day!

Mostly sunny skies again on Memorial Day with a high of about 85°

Things really start to heat up following the holiday weekend. By Wednesday, we’ll hit the 90-degree mark, and temperatures will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s for most of next week. We do have a slight chance of rain late in the week, and we could definitely use it! Since March 1, we’re still about half an inch above normal for precipitation - but that surplus is quickly being depleted by dry, windy conditions, low dew points, and increasing temperatures. So c’mon, rain! (Just not on the holiday weekend, right?)
