Triple Digit Heat & Storm Chances

More triple digit heat is headed to Central Indiana, with a chance for scattered showers and storms.

Highs will top out near 100 degrees today with scattered storms expected to develop for the afternoon and evening.  Today’s record high is 100 set in 1954.  Widespread severe weather is not expected, but an isolated severe storm is possible with damaging wind and hail.  A Heat Advisory is in effect until 8 tonight, at times it could feel up to 110 degrees with the humidity.

Tuesday, Indianapolis hit 101 degrees, making it the seventh time this year we’ve hit the century mark!  Even though a few lucky spots received heavy rain, the official measuring spot for Indy remained dry, so our rain total since June 1st is still only .09″.

Scattered showers and storms are possible tonight as temps settle into the low 70s.

Thursday we’ll have another chance for scattered showers and storms as highs top out in the low 90s.  Some storms may be strong to severe.

Friday we’ll see partly cloudy skies with highs around 90.

The weekend looks dry with highs in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees.

Our next chance of rain moves in Tuesday.
