INDIANAPOLIS - Welcome to the “dog days” of August.
While I know it isn’t August yet it will certainly feel like it during the day today.
Expect hazy sunshine, high humidity levels and temperatures that will climb into the upper 80s to near 90 degrees in many areas.
There is the very small chance of an isolated storm this afternoon but most of remain completely dry.
Late tonight and overnight our storm chances will go up. Most of the area is under a “slight risk” of severe weather for tonight and tomorrow.
I feel the best chance of storms however will be on Tuesday night into Wednesday when the actually cold front goes through.
Once this front passes, much cooler and drier weather moves in for race weekend with high temperatures in the low to mid 70s.
