Indianapolis Weather

The weather is very seasonal, meaning there are four "real" seasons in the classic sense - a brisk winter with some snow (sometimes a lot of snow), a green spring, a warm summer, and a crisp, colorful autumn. And it rains just enough to keep the trees full and lush and grass green.

We have a saying here in the Midwest, "If you don't like the weather, stay five minutes, it will change". Here's a look at what a typical year looks like in Indianapolis.

Indianapolis Climate

Indianapolis's coldest month is January when the average temperature overnight is 18.5°F. In July, the warmest month, the average day time temperature rises to 85.6°F. The driest month in Indianapolis is February with 2.41 inches of precipitation, and with 4.42 inches July is the wettest month. SOURCE

Situated on level or slightly rolling terrain in central Indiana east of the White River, Indianapolis has a temperate climate; because of even distribution of precipitation throughout the year, there are no pronounced wet or dry seasons. Summers are very warm, and the invasion of polar air from the north often produces frigid winter temperatures with low humidity. Two to three times each winter, snowfalls average three inches or more. SOURCE
