Today is the 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500 and it could quiet possibly be the hottest 500 on record.

We're starting the day extremely muggy with temps in the lower 70s and a few isolated storms in the southern half of the state. We stay dry in the Indy metro through the morning as temperatures quickly climb. By the start of the race around noon, we'll be at 88° with a heat index in the lower 90s.

An isolated pop-up storm will be possible, mainly after 3pm and in the southern half of the state. Otherwise, just increasing clouds with the heat of the day.

The "standing" record for the hottest Indy 500 was 92° in 1937. We're forecasting a high of 93° this afternoon and with the humidity added in, will feel more like 95-98°.

It stays hot for Memorial Day with a nearly repeat forecast. Mostly sunny with afternoon clouds developing with a chance of an isolated shower or storm. Highs near 93°.

We're watching the remnants of a tropical system set to move in late Tuesday into Wednesday and that will bring the next chance for widespread rain into Central Indiana. - Lindsey Monroe
