A cold front moved across the state late Thursday and is bringing an end to the warm, wet weather pattern that has plagued the state this week. Cooler, drier air will flow into the state, and temperatures and humidity will be much lower. This dry, more pleasant weather pattern will hold for the 4th of July weekend with sunny skies and highs near 80 degrees.
Hoosiers will enjoy an extended streak of quiet weather next week. We’ll have sunny skies with highs near 90 degrees through Tuesday. Our next chance for rain and thunderstorms will come Wednesday.
