STATEWIDE--High temperatures will be in the 80s across Indiana both today and tomorrow with little to no humidity, says the National Weather Service.
“It’s going to be really pleasant weather the next couple of days. There will be lots of sun with very few clouds in the sky. It’ll be just generally pleasant conditions,” said Andrew White, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
There could be storms later in the week, but White says it is too early to know if they’ll be strong or severe. He says the dry weather has been a theme for June.
“With the dry weather coming for the next few days, we’re not going to be getting a whole lot of relief from that. We’re running two inches below normal for the month,” said White.
Some places in Indiana are dealing with “abnormally dry” or conditions that bring “moderate drought.”
“It depends on where you live. Areas to the northwest near Lafayette and down towards Evansville are in what we consider to be moderate drought while widespread conditions of ‘abnormally dry’ are present. Moderate drought means your lawns are starting to dry out and get that brown color. A lot of the crops are starting to dry out as well. Hay and crop yields are low,” said White.
White says heat index values could be near 100 on Friday.
