INDIANAPOLIS – Temperatures on this Friday returned to below average levels with a high that maxed out at 82 degrees. This comes after a cold front advanced through the state one day prior. A northwest wind remains in it’s wake and is responsible for spilling mild & dry air through the Midwest. A high pressure system currently over Iowa will maintain this northwesterly flow into the weekend.

It can be difficult to get truly perfect weather days in the middle of summer, but we may just do that on Saturday!

Dry air and a mostly clear sky will contribute to the overnight cool down, but will also bright about a quick daytime warm up. We will be approaching 80 by lunchtime though highs should stay in the low 80s. It will be a great day to spend some time at the track or the fairgrounds where events will be ongoing through the day!
