Staying dry through the weekend; above average temperatures to return

Data pix.

More districts are heading back to school this Friday morning! The weather will be very similar to Thursday due to high pressure over Michigan and Great Lakes. The dry weather pattern will continue through Monday, but temperatures will gradually rise back above average before the weekend is up.

The Indianapolis Indians have a home game this evening against Columbus. Skies will stay mostly clear through the evening hours with temperatures in the lower 80s at first pitch. Temperatures will drop to the 70s by the time the fireworks show begins!

This weekend looks great for those who have outdoor plans — just remember the sun block! The UV Index the next few days will stay elevated and sunburn may occur within a 15-minute period. Temperatures will peak near 90 degrees before dropping again midweek. Our next best chance for rain arrives Tuesday night and Wednesday.
