The Heat is On!

We hit 86 degrees at noon in Indianapolis and should easily warm into the low 90s for highs with mostly sunny skies. It will be a breezy afternoon with winds gusting over 20 mph. Get used the the heat…it’s not going anywhere.

While we’d love to see some rain, it won’t happen for the next few days. So if you want to beat the heat, you may want to head to your neighborhood pool. Highs today will be close to but won’t quite reach the record. 92 is my forecast this afternoon and the record is 96 set in 1994.

If you are out and about, don’t forget the shades and sunscreen! Today’s UV Index is a 9 – Very High. You could burn in 15 minutes or less.

Looking ahead in your WTHR-TV 7-Day, you won’t find much heat or rain relief. Our next chance (only a chance) arrives Thursday. Right now it looks like about a 30-50% chance of rain north and west of Indianapolis but only a 20% chance of rain south and east of Indy. Unfortunately, even if we do get rain, it looks like less than 1/4″ possible. There’s another slight chance of rain early Sunday morning – mainly for the northeastern third of the state.

Finally, our WTHR-TV Hoosier Pic at noon. The Harvey Family submitted their Father’s Day sign: “I love my Dad because…” So cute! Submit your pic on WTHR’s Facebook Page:
