Here Comes the Heat

By · May 24, 2012 at 4:44 am

Get ready for the heat and humidity to increase as we get closer to the running of the Indianapolis 500!

Highs will reach the mid to upper 80s today with mostly sunny skies and wind gusts out of the south up to 25mph.  Not only is the temp increasing, but it will feel more humid outside too.

Tonight, lows drop to the mid 60s with mostly clear skies.

Friday highs reach the mid to upper 80s with a 20% chance for isolated showers or storms.  The day will not be a washout, but there is a chance for some isolated activity.

By Saturday we’re in the low 90s and for the Indy 500 Sunday, we’ll hit the low 90s with heat index values near 100!  The record high for the running of the Indianapolis 500 is 92 set back in 1937, we are looking to tie or break that record.

If you will be at the race, or are planning to enjoy time outside this weekend, remember to drink plenty of water, slather on the sunscreen, and take breaks in the shade.

I’ve heard Chuck Lofton using the term, “the lion’s share” from time to time. Just wondering what that is referring to.

Thanks
