Streak of 90s Begins

Get ready… Central Indiana is bracing for at seven days of temps at or above 90 degrees, and it will feel even hotter than that.

Brace yourself for the heat.

Yes… I know it’s summer, but the average temp this time of year is in the mid 80s, and we’re looking at seven days of temps at or above 90 degrees.  The heat will be dangerous with heat indices pushing close to 110 again!

Highs today will reach about 90 degrees with a 20% chance of an isolated shower or thunderstorm.

Overnight, temps only drop to the low 70s… and the humidity increases as we head into Sunday.  Sunday, highs will hit the low 90s, but it will feel closer to 100 degrees.  Once again, there’s a 20% chance of an isolated shower or thunderstorm.

Check out the 7 day for the hot temps headed our way.  Starting Monday, and lasting through Friday, it will feel like 100 to 110 degrees.

Our best shot at a little rain comes Tuesday.  So far this month we’ve only picked up .11″ of rain.  That’s 2.05″ below the monthly average.  However, keep in mind for the year, Indy is still 7.41″ above average for rainfall.

Stay cool!
