Hot, Hot, And Hot


For the 19th day this year Indianapolis hit 90°. In fact, afternoon temperatures were closer to daily record high levels than average.

In addition... the an oppressive Muggy Meter made it feel more like 95 to near 100° due to dewpoints near 70°.

Our weather pattern and associated air mass does not change much the next 48 hours. That means you can expect at least two more 90°+ days this week and possibly a third on Friday depending on the time of a cool front.

That front is our next best chance of rain, but even so our odds of precipitation right now are only at 40%

Less humid air moves in behind this front for the weekend with highs in the 80s under a blanket of sun.

Relief from the high heat appears to be brief with long-range guidance continuing to support above average temperatures... possibly 90°+ again. What could potentially alter that would be any system(s) from the Gulf of Mexico.
