There’s so much to do in Indy, why not earn a little extra scratch to pay for it?

We know the question on your mind, Hoosiers — how many pool days will we get this summer?

Thanks to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center, we know what temperatures and precipitation trends to expect in our city for June, July, and August. While exact weather conditions typically can’t be predicted more than a week in advance, here’s a seasonal outlook to help you prepare for what summer will bring.

Reminder: The first official day of summer is Thursday, June 20.

June

We have equal chances of experiencing above average temperatures in Indy this month. The average high temperature in June is 81º, but this week is already well above that — with forecasted temperature highs hovering in the low 90s. Similarly, precipitation will linger at the average mark in June, which means we can expect approximately eight days of rain. Sounds like perfect pool weather to us.

July

In July, the average high is 85º and the average low is 65º. Similar to June, the average amount of rainfall is eight days. We’re thinking that this will call for plenty of afternoons spent meandering through Indy’s parks followed by an al fresco dinner at a local spot.

August

The average amount of rainfall typically dips to seven days in August + the average high temperature is 83º. However, August 24, 2023 brought us Indy’s hottest day of the year, so that leaves us wondering — will we experience our hottest day of 2024 during this final month of summer?
