Prepare for the Weekend HeatBy
The hottest weekend of the year so far is shaping up across Central Indiana.
Highs will reach the upper 80s today with a chance of a pop up shower or thunderstorm.
Saturday, we’ll see sunshine and temps in the low 90s. It will be humid, so use extra care if you have outdoor plans. As temps rise, make sure to drink plenty of water before you head out, and also during activity. Sunscreen will be very important too!
Sunday could be a new record for the Indianapolis 500. We’re forecasting a high of 93 Sunday. That would break the record for the hottest Indy 500 on record of 92 in 1937. Plenty of sunshine will be found across the state, so we shouldn’t have any issues as the cars hit the track. The normal high is 75, so we are well above average.
Monday temps remain in the low 90s with a chance for an isolated shower or thunderstorm.
Rain and storms become more likely Tuesday. Some storms may be strong, we’ll keep a close eye on this. With the showers and storms much cooler air moves in, and by Wednesday temps will cool to the mid 70s.
