Hot & Humid Forecast Sticks Around

Posted By · September 3, 2015 at 4:27 am

It’s a warm and humid start across central Indiana with current temperatures in the 60s and 70s.  There is patchy fog across the area this morning, so you’ll need to watch out for that as you hit the road. 

Yesterday Indianapolis hit 90 degrees for the 7th time this year, and today we could hit that high again.  There is an isolated storm chance this afternoon too. 

thursday today

Pollen levels remain high today into the weekend.

Sultry September

Posted By · September 1, 2015 at 4:43 am

Welcome to a sultry start to September. Although this is the time of year when daily highs are supposed to go down, this week will see highs near or over 90 every day into next week.

chuck today

Hazy sun, humid air and upper disturbance trigger isolated to widely scattered showers and storms during peak heating. While locally heavy rain occurs under these slow-moving downpours… these will be locally heavy so many of you will see no rain at all.

Heat will be a big story at the crown jewel of drag racing, the NHRA US Nationals this week in Clermont at Lucas Oil Raceway Park.

chuck nhra

Don’t forget the Indianapolis Indians return to action at Victory Field Wednesday evening for their last regular season home stand of the season. Hot weather can be expected at the ballpark Wednesday into Saturday and as well as for Colts tailgating Thursday evening.
