Hot weather sticks around for the weather

Today will be another hot one today with highs likely hitting 90° for the fifth straight day.  Yesterday also marked the 20th straight day without measurable rain for Indianapolis.  Both streaks will be coming to an end over your holiday weekend.  Rain should arrive on Saturday and behind the front that will trigger rain will be drier and cooler air.  We are forecasting a pretty big drop with us going from 90s to a day in the 70s for highs within 48 hours.  Enjoy the heat while you can!

For today hazy skies won’t be able to shield us from the heat with highs hitting the low to mid 90s.  The record high for the day is 95° and I think we get close.  I am going a high of 93 degrees.  Winds will be light and out of the southwest.

A series of fronts will make for a soggy start to your Labor Day weekend.  The first front will arrive on Saturday and will bring a chance for rain throughout the day.  Highs should still reach the 90s but just barely.  Light rain could last through Sunday morning.  Another Sunday cold front will bring another round of rain late Sunday into early Monday morning.  Rain chances should come to an end for Monday afternoon with highs falling to the mid to low 80s.  We return to a dry pattern for Tuesday through Friday with temperatures dipping through Tuesday (high of only 77 degrees) but warming to the mid to upper 80s by next Friday.
