The unseasonably warm air has spring fever at a premium. Monday marked the fourth straight 60-degree day and the most 60-degree days in a year to date with 10. That surpassed the old record of 8 days set in 1880.
Next up, our first 70-degree day. On average the first 70-degree day in Indianapolis is March 18, nearly a month away. One year ago today (February 20) we set a new record high of 72-degree and marked the first of the 2016. The earliest 70-degree day on record came January 11 back in 1890. The latest first 70-degree day of the year came April 25, 1964.
