STATEWIDE–High temperatures will be in the 90s across Indiana Thursday, but it will feel hotter than that. It will, however, start to cool down on Friday.
“The hottest portions of the state look to be in the southern Indiana where temperatures are supposed to be close to 95,” said Andrew White, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis. “Heat indexes there, though, could be around 105. Some places could be 110 near the Ohio River.”
Relief from the heat is coming.
“Today (Thursday) will be the last day of the more extreme heat. We’re expecting a cold front to come through tomorrow (Friday) through that will bring some showers and storms in the overnight hours,” said White.
Temperatures will be in the low 80s through the weekend as well as both Monday and Tuesday for many places, but then temperatures will creep back into the mid-to-upper 80s Wednesday and Thursday.
There is also a marginal risk for severe weather Thursday.
“The northern portions of the state are under the gun for storms again today. We’re expecting a dip into the middle of the day, but then there will likely be more showers and storms in the evening to overnight hours,” said White.
White says if you need to be outside for work, you should take plenty of breaks and drink lots of water. He also recommends staying inside when you can.
