Record Heat Today… Heat Wave Rolls On

Record heat is expected across Central Indiana today.

Record heat is expected across Central Indiana today.

Highs will top out above 10o degrees today.  The record for today is 101 set back in 1934, and we’ll either tie or break that as we head into this afternoon.  A Red Flag Warning is in effect today.  With wind gusts up to 30mph, and low humidity, fire danger is increased.  An Excessive Heat Warning is also in effect today and tomorrow.  Use care when you’re out an about.  It sounds simple, but stay cool, wear light clothing, and drink plenty of water.

Tonight temps only drop to the mid 70s.

Friday, we’ll introduce a 20% chance of isolated storms.  Most spots won’t see a drop of rain.  Highs Friday will top out near 100 degrees!  The record for Friday is 100 set back in 1934.

Saturday, another 20% chance of isolated storms, and another near record!  Saturday’s record is 97 set back in 1933.

In the 7 day forecast, we never get rid of the 90 degree temps, and we don’t have a very good chance of rain either.

Stay safe!
