Indianapolis is in the middle of a late season heatwave. Tuesday's high temperature was 92 degrees, 11 degrees above average, and just four degrees off the record high for the date. It was our 19th day of the year to reach a high of 90 or more. Thanks to a warm front that is draped north of the state, our summer-like heat will continue for the next three days. Expect highs in the low-90s with the heat index in the mid-90s. With temperatures this extreme, be sure to bring your pets inside and double check the back seat to make sure kids are not left inside hot cars.
We'll see a slight chance for isolated afternoon and evening thunderstorms Wednesday and a dry Thursday. Our best chance for rain will come Friday and a cold front approaches the state. After the front passes this weekend, we'll have cooler temperatures and lower humidity.
