Get ready, triple digit heat is on the way to Central Indiana.
Highs will reach the low 90s today, with low humidity. Today is the 23rd day in a row that we’ve had no measurable rain in Indianapolis. The fact that we have low humidity will contribute to the fire danger as we go through the Fourth of July holiday.
Thursday, a Heat Advisory and Fire Weather Watch is in effect for all of Central Indiana. Winds will gust out of the west up to 30mph, and with low humidity, fire danger is high. Thursday’s high looks to hit at least 100 degrees! The record is 101 from 1934.
Another triple digit day is possible Friday, the record for that day is 100 from 1934.
Overnight lows “cool” to the low 70s… but even after the triple digit heat… the 90s stay in the 7 day forecast.
As for rain chances, there’s a 20% chance of a thunderstorm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
The normal high this time of year is 85.
