Hottest Day of the Week Today; Heat Advisory IssuedBy
Temps will soar into the upper 90s today, but will feel much warmer because of the humidity.
We’re forecasting a high of 97 today with heat indices of 100 to 110. A Heat Advisory is in effect for Central Indiana from noon to 8pm today. There’s a slight chance for an isolated storm, but it looks like most spots stay dry. The big story today is the oppressive heat and humidity.
Overnight, temps drop into the 70s with the muggy-ness sticking around.
Friday, temps drop to the mid 90s with a 30% chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. That chance of rain continues into Saturday. If we don’t pick up any rain at the Indianapolis International Airport, this July will go down as the driest July in history. So far this month, we’ve only had .33″ of rain at the airport (the official measuring location).
There’s a chance for a pop up shower or storm for the Brickyard, but at this time the race looks mainly dry. Temps will stay in the 90s, and it will feel more like 100.
Our streak of 90s continues through the 7 day forecast. Today is the 12th day in a row that we’ll hit the 90 degree mark. If we hit at least 90 each and everyday through next Thursday, we’ll tie the record for the most consecutive days of 90 degree temps at 19! That record was set back in 1936.
