Streak of 90s

So you think it’s been hot? This has been the longest streak of 90 degree days in 3 years, but we’re looking to add more through the weekend.

Tuesday was the second day in a row of 90 degree weather in the Indianapolis area.  The 90 degree mark will be exceeded each day through Sunday for a total of 7 consecutive days.  This will eclipse the much shorter 3 and 4 consecutive day spans seen this year and in 2009. 

During the summer of 2007 the Indianapolis area experienced two consecutive weeks of 90 degree weather at the very end of July and the beginning of August.  August 2007 would have 9 more 90 degree days for a total of 22 days…making August 2007 the 3rd hottest August of record.   

The hot weather during 2007 continued into September and early October.  September 2007 was the 7th warmest September of record.  The latest 90 weather of record at Indianapolis occurred on October 7 and 8 in 2007.

How do you socialize?

With all the social media in the world, how do you use it all?

With all the social media in the world, how do you use it all?

I’ve at least tried to poke my toes in the water of most social media “phenomena” that come along (anyone remember Orkut?) and some stick, others are forgotten in the mass of password reminder e-mails buried deep in various inboxes. It’s obvious that not all social media platforms are equal, but do you use them equally?

This question popped up in a recent flurry of LinkedIn invites hitting my mailbox. I forget when I first signed on over there, but I’m pretty sure only about a third of my profile information is relevant anymore. I’ve Facebooked for, I think, at least five years (back when it was a college-based invite system, yet my alumni e-mail address got me in the door) and have Tweeted for pushing two. I’m far more immersed in Facebook, personally, and have gotten a lot more mileage out of Twitter from work than from home.

But where does LinkedIn fit in?

I’m pretty open to who I invite/accept into my Facebook world, with a few exceptions, family, friends, long lost faces from a high school yearbook, whatever. But LinkedIn seems different. It’s probably the layout, but it seems to me that it’s more of a professional environment. Yet a lot of folks seem to be seeking me out lately that would serve me no apparent professional gain.

Am I crazy?

Maybe I’m missing a chance to broaden my social opportunities, but I think LinkedIn should be people that you would be able to recommend for a job, right?

I’m really curious to see where everyone else draws the lines of their social media boundaries. Are you an “everything goes” type person? Or do you pick and choose your online acquaintances as strictly as I do?

A Little Relief

Whew! The high temp hit 96 in Indy Wednesday making it the warmest day of the year, but a few degrees away from shattering a record.

Are you ready for some cooler temps?  Today will still be sticky, but highs will only reach the upper 80s with partly cloudy skies.  Lingering showers will exit the viewing area by late morning as a cold front pushes through the state.

Overnight we drop into the mid 60s with partly cloudy skies.

Friday, the opening of the Indiana State Fair!  And, we couldn’t ask for better weather!  Highs will hit the mid 80s with partly cloudy skies.  Make sure to stop by the WTHR booth if you’re heading to the fairgrounds!

For the weekend we start to warm up to the upper 80s again but stay dry.

Next week more 90 degree temps start to work their way into the forecast with more above average heat invading the state.

Dangerous Heat Wednesday

Today temperatures will feel like 105-115, the heat is dangerous and deadly.

Highs today will reach the mid 90s but with a Heat Advisory and Excessive Heat Warning in effect for portions for Central Indiana at times it will feel closer to 105-115.  Please used caution when outside today, and also keep pets in mind.  Drink plenty of water and stay cool as much as possible. 

Scattered storms are possible and some could reach severe limits.  A good chunk of the viewing area is under a slight risk for severe storms.  We are mainly watching for frequent lightning, heavy rain that could lead to flash flooding, and damaging wind.  As a cold front moves through overnight we’ll be watching for the same threats.

After the cold front passes, we’ll see less humidity and cooler temperatures.  A few storms could linger through midday tomorrow.  Highs Thursday will warm to the mid to upper 80s.  That sounds cool compared to today!

Friday looks to be the best day of the extended forecast with highs in the mid 80s.
