INDIANAPOLIS - Today is the day that we have been waiting for. No, not for because it’s Friday (well, maybe) but because it is the best day of the week weather wise. Look for sunny skies throughout the day today and a high temperature of 73 degrees which is just a degree below normal for this time of year. Get out and enjoy.
If you are heading to the track today bring plenty of sunscreen as you will need it throughout the day. Don’t let the cooler temperatures fool you. The late May sunshine is very strong and you will burn very quickly.
Saturday is another great day with partly cloudy skies and a high temperature of 75 degrees.
Now to Race Day! I continue to push back the rain later and later in the day which is great news for the 99th running of the Indy 500. At this point we can’t rule out the chance of an isolated storm flaring up but it looks like any steady rain will hold off until later in the day. Skies will be mostly cloudy with high temperatures in the upper 70s.
The better chance of rain will come on Monday. The day will not be a washout but the showers and storms will be more numerous across the area with a high temperature right around 80.
A very summer-like weather pattern will take hold next week with partly cloudy skies and isolated thunderstorms each day and high temperatures that will be right around 80 degrees.
