Heat Comes Back!

So you say you are tired of the cooler than average weather and want to see a return to the heat:  Well, it looks like the heat and humidity is back for awhile in Indianapolis. We’re looking for highs to reach the upper 80s today and possibly 90 tomorrow. We’ll keep the storms out until sometime during the day Wednesday.


Indianapolis’ streak of sub-90 degree days is up to 314.  There is a chance of snapping the streak tomorrow when temperatures make a run at that elusive number.  If we don’t hit 90 it will certainly feel like with heat indices well into the 90s.  If we miss 90 degrees Tuesday the streak may continue well past this weekend.  Long range guidance suggesting another unseasonably cool air mass arriving July 28-30.


We’ll cool back down to the 70s Thursday and then, another jump up, with temps in the mid 80s for the Brickyard 400 Sunday. Remember, our complete coverage begins bright and early at 5 am Sunday morning.
