We had the hottest day of the year this afternoon bloggers. Indianapolis, had it's hottest day since August of 1988!! They hit a scorching high of 100* degrees this afternoon. Take a look at just a few of the highs from across the area below.
To avoid heat related health problems, it is recommended that you do the following:
•Avoid exposure outdoors
•Wear loose-fitting, light colored clothing
•Never leave children or pets in parked cars, even with windows cracked open
•If you do not have air conditioning, go to a public location that is air-conditioned just for a few hours (this can help your body maintain appropriate temperatures)
So how long is this heat going to continue before we see even a slight break?? Well, here is a look at your weekend temperatures I put together below.
You can see that heading into the weekend the highs will still be very dangerous. Highs in the Middle to low 90s which means the heat index will still be in the dangerous level well over 100* degrees. (Heat index are shown in pink).
The good news is at this time the MOS models are showing me some 80s trying to return by the start of next week! It won't be a major cool down as we would still be between 2* - and 5* degrees above are average. However it is a welcomed start! So I will keep watching that for you all over the next few days. Until then please stay safe and as cool as you can. I'll check back soon.
