Excessive Heat Warning Continues

By · July 20, 2011 at 5:39 am

An Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect for all of Central Indiana until Saturday afternoon. 

Highs today will reach the mid 90s with heat indices pushing 115.  There a chance for an isolated thunderstorm, but we’re not looking at widespread rain for Indiana in the 7 day forecast.

Overnight, temps drop to the 70s and 80s, but heat indices will likely stick in the 90s, so we’re not even getting relief overnight!

Thursday may be the hottest day of the year so far, with a projected high of 97.

This will be the warmest eight day streak in Indianapolis history since 1941.

Through Saturday, heat indices will top out at 105 to 115. 

Tuesday… Indy topped out at a feels like temp off 110, some spots felt closer to 130!  Click here to see where the weather was the worst!

I just hope nobody asks me, “Hot enough for ya?” I don’t know what I might say or do!

Is this normal weather for summer?

Terry… it’s not “normal” but we do get heatwaves from time to time. This type of excessive heat that’s taken over 32 states is sweltering, and to have the prolonged heat like this is above the average of summer heat. The worst part of it, in my opinion, is that it doesn’t significantly cool off overnight!

When can we start expecting some showers? Our yards are dying? And wouldn’t rain bring in coed weather?

Jim hot enough for ya? Just kidding! Hey I was outside working for
like 5 hours when it hit 98 degrees. I had a big towel soaked in icewater around my neck the whole time. My clothes where drenched but I had a good time of it and suffered no ill effects due to the heat! Keep your juggular cool and your brain wont cook!
