This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Skies have turned partly cloudy to mostly cloudy across much of central Indiana this afternoon due to a wave of clouds moving into the state.  Temperatures have remained comfortable all day and with dew points in the 40s. This has meant another refreshing day!  Skies remain partly cloudy overnight and this keeps temperatures in the mid to upper 50s across our area.



Sunday will see a mix of mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies in central Indiana. You’ll see more clouds to the southwest and fewer as you go to the northeast.  Here in Indianapolis, skies should be mostly sunny and it will be dry all day long!  It’s going to be a beautiful day for the 98th running of the Indianapolis 500.  Dew points will be rising on Sunday to bring back a touch more humidity but nothing overly tropical yet.  Winds will be light coming in from the south at 2 to 5 mph.  Also, don’t forget the sunscreen tomorrow!  The UV Index will sit at “8” which is considered very high and you could start to burn withing 15-20 minutes.  Have fun tomorrow if you are headed to the track and be safe!


Monday starts mostly sunny, mild and dry.  We’ll continue to be dry at the noon hour with partly cloudy conditions and temperatures already into the upper 70s.  The chance for scattered storms returns Monday afternoon around 2 PM in western Indiana and will continue through Monday evening across much of the state for Memorial Day. This will be a hot and humid day in central Indiana with a high around 84°.  Our scattered showers and thunderstorms will fade after sunset and Monday night will be dry.
