Highs today will reach the low 90s with partly cloudy skies, and a 20% chance of a pop up shower or thunderstorm this afternoon.  It will feel closer to 100 degrees this afternoon with the humidity.  A Heat Advisory has been issued for the extreme northern section of our viewing area.  Click here to see the advisory area.

Tonight, temps drop to the low 70s with partly cloudy skies.  It will remain warm and muggy.

Monday, temps will soar into the low 90s again with feels like temps of 95 to 105 degrees.  There’s a 20% chance for an isolated thunderstorm.  Some storms may be strong to severe most likely containing damaging winds.

Starting Tuesday, all of Central Indiana is under an Excessive Heat Watch.  This means temps in the 90s combined with high humidity will make it feel like 100 to 110 from late morning to early evening each day through Friday.  Watches and warnings will be updated here throughout the day.  The best chance for rain also comes Tuesday, but it’s only a 30% chance.

This is dangerous heat.  It may seem like a silly reminder, but drink lots of water to stay hydrated, and stay in air conditioning when you can.
