Near Record Heat for First Full Week of Fall


Near Record Heat for First Full Week of Fall

High temperatures reached the upper 80s, and overall the airmass over the state was a bit drier today. Today we hit 91° blasting past the prior record of 84°.

Our hot streak rolls on as Sunday was our fourth 90-degree day in a row. Showers become increasingly likely Monday night into Tuesday. That will give us two chances for rain and bring in more seasonal weather by the end of the work week.

Saturday's high temperature of 95 degrees tied for the hottest day of the year and set a record for the latest in the year that the hottest temperature of the year was recorded in the city, according to the weather service. On average, Indianapolis records 1.5 90 plus degree days in the month of September. Believe it or not, all occurrences happed outside of summer.

It didn't take long either, we were barely past lunch when the National Weather Service-Chicago let us know that temperatures had already climbed to 93 degrees. A "cool" front will move in from the northwest late Wednesday night.

Temperatures will begin to drop Thursday to a high of 78 degrees and be considerably cooler by the weekend. Rain chances look sparse with only slight chances Wednesday and Friday. Temperatures also will remain on the seasonable side, only reaching the middle 60s.
