Spring is Here, But it Feels Like Summer!

By · March 20, 2012 at 1:07 pm

*Happy Spring: The Vernal Equinox was 1:14 this morning.  Typical high for today: 54.  Your forecast for today: 85!

*Record stretch:  We hit 74 at 11am, making this our 9th straight day of 70+ temps (the record had been 6 straight for March and we keep adding to it!)

*Daily record: As of 1pm we were at 77. It’s going to be a breeze to beat 80 (set in 1894) today.

*Monthly record: Warmest all-time for the month of March was 85 on March 31, 1981.  I think we have a shot at tying the record both today AND tomorrow!

*Hoosier Pic at Noon:  This pooch sure knows how to beat the heat!  Submitted via facebook by Amy Marschard

Our next chance of rain arrives Thursday which will cool our temps down, but we’ll still be well above the normals in the mid 50s! (And for those of you suffering from seasonal allergies, rain will help wash away the pollen that’s going sky-high!)

So how many records have we broken so far? The National Weather Service has a great summary: http://www.crh.noaa.gov/news/display_cmsstory.php?wfo=ind&storyid=80710&source=0

Enjoy this first day of Spring!
