The hottest air in years is on it's way to central Indiana. We're forecasting a string of days with high temperatures in the 90s with the heat index near or above 100 degrees. No relief is in sight from our heat wave until early next week. In the meantime we'll all have to do our best to stay cool. We'll have a daily chance for scattered afternoon and evening t-storms through race weekend.

  3. Eat smaller meals with a higher water content.
  4.  Drink lots of water.
