REWRITING THE RECORD BOOK

What a day! The preliminary high temperature of 77-degrees is the earliest on record for Indianapolis.

Several records have fallen today:

  • A record warm minimum for the date
  • A record high for the date
  • An all-time high temperature for the month of February, beating 76-degrees in 2000

The high today is the normal for May 29!

Gusty winds fuel this late May feel with gusts topping 40 mph in Indianapolis through 3 p.m. this afternoon.

STORMY LATE

Rain is coming but still several hours until it arrives (estimated 9-10 p.m. in Indianapolis) and as early as 7-8 p.m. far western counties.

Heavy downpours are possible along with higher rainfall amounts in and around thunderstorms. Upwards of 1 to 2 inches of rain could fall by Wednesday afternoon.

Get out and enjoy this unusual warmth. A cold front arrives overnight and temperature will fall sharply, dropping nearly 40-degrees by sunrise!
