Brickyard 400 Weekend Forecast

By · July 30, 2011 at 5:20 am

Rain… many spots around Indiana finally saw rain!  Indy picked up .14″ of rain last night, bringing our monthly July total to .47″ of rain.  That’s still the driest on record.  The previous record was .49″ in 1914.

Highs today will reach the low 90s with a mix of sun and clouds and a 30% chance of isolated showers and storms along and south of I-70.  Severe storms are not expected, but any thunderstorm will produce very heavy rain.

Overnight, temps drop to the low 70s, and clear skies and light winds, patchy fog is likely.

For the Brickyard, highs hit the low 90s with heat indices pushing close to 100.  There’s a 10% chance for a pop up shower or storm, but most spots look to stay dry.

Monday the humidity increases, and by Tuesday we’re back in the mid 90s.

Our best chance for rain, begins Wednesday.

If you’re keeping track of consecutive 90 degree days… Friday made 13 days in a row!  The record is 19 back in 1936.
