STATEWIDE--After Friday, Indiana will be experiencing warmer temperatures and mostly sunny skies.
“For the weekend, we’re going to start seeing a large area of high-pressure start building across the area tomorrow and that’s going to bring gradually warming conditions all the way through Tuesday,” said Jason Puma, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
Puma expects high temperatures across the state to be in the 70s on Saturday and then in the 80s on Sunday.
“And then for Memorial Day, again we’ll have sunny skies with a high of 89. That heat will start building in along with that humidity as the week progresses,” said Puma.
If, for example, you are heading out to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500, Puma is advising you to stay hydrated.
“You’re going to get sunburned if you aren’t wearing sunscreen out at the track. Stay hydrated with non-alcoholic beverages like water, tea, or Gatorade so you don’t have to deal with any heat-related issues,” said Puma.
