Our 90-Degree Streak Isn’t Ready to End YetBy
What do you get when you combine dry ground, high pressure, and nearly full sunshine? Answer: Another day with highs in the 90s. We’ve had 13 straight already and today will make 14 in a row – 2 weeks straight!
Our noon temperatures were already warming in a hurry with Indy up to 87 and Terre Haute already at 91!
Highs should make it into the low 90s today and we could tap low 90s tomorrow and Thursday as well. Here’s a look at your afternoon forecast.
The UV Index today is very high – at a 10. Slather on the sunscreen…unprotected skin could burn in less than 15 minutes.
What about rain? We’ll be dry today and tomorrow, but signs are now pointing to a significant change late week and into the weekend – a GOOD chance of much-needed rain! Here’s what the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center is projecting for rainfall totals…some parts of Southern and Southeastern Indiana could get 2″+ and 1″+ might be possible here in Indy. We desperately need it.
In your WTHR-TV 7-Day, here’s the timing for our rain chances. We stay dry today and tomorrow. Thursday there could be isolated storms in Southeastern Indiana. Friday scattered storms are possible (about a 30-40% chance). Saturday rain is now looking LIKELY with a 40-50% chance. Sunday and Monday and even in to Tuesday it now looks like a 20-30% chance of getting wet. Since we’re now 7.91″ below average for rainfall since January 1st and 5.87″ below since June 1st, every little bit will help!
Finally, our WTHR-TV Hoosier Pic at noon. Check out the stunning sunrise shot that Richard Gentry captured yesterday morning from Jamestown in Boone County. It’s fantastic!

Have a great afternoon and keep your fingers crossed for rain later this week!
