More Records In Jeopardy, More Chances of Much-Needed Rain

We did it again! Another record high. This time, we tied the record of 97 set in 1933 and 1913. That’s in addition to record highs we set on Thursday (104) and Friday (103).

More records are in jeopardy – especially on Sunday. If we reach 97, that will tie the record dating back to 1970. We’ll be close to record territory both Monday and Tuesday.

Meanwhile, we SET the record for driest June with just .09″ in June of 2012. That beats .36″ in the Great Drought of 1988.

Will there be a turn-around for July? According to the Climate Prediction Center: NO. Our July outlook is for below average precipitation and above average temperatures. In fact, the long range Drought Outlook through September predicts that our drought will either Persist or Intensify!

Our heatwave will continue for at least another week with mid to upper 90s expected each day. The Heat Advisory continue for Indy points north and Excessive Heat Warning for areas to the south until 8pm Sunday.

Sunday will also feature the chance of scattered showers and storms – and a slight risk of severe (wind/hail the biggest threats). Some spots could get up to 1/4″ of rain…many may once again miss out.

Looking ahead in your WTHR-TV 7-day…there’s not much change. Hot weather continues.
