According to the National Weather Service, highs today were expected to reach into the mid and upper 80s. At Hartzell’s Ice Cream shop, employee Alaura Ruterbories says the hot weather means good business.
“ I think a lot of people are coming in during the afternoon when it is a lot hotter, especially after classes when they’ve been walking to class. And there have been a lot of people are coming in at night cause it’s nice enough to walk around outside.”
According to the National Weather Service’s Amanda Homann south central Indiana won’t be experiencing fall like temperatures for awhile.
“We will cool down a little bit, probably not right away, but hopefully within the next couple weeks, after that we should be still slightly above average.”
Homann says the hot weather can be attributed to a temporary high pressure system across the area. She says the dry conditions are also making it feel warmer. Bloomington resident Gabe Rivera says he doesn’t mind the heat…
“I enjoy the hot weather, I do have my concerns about the weather, how it is and it’s, the fact that it may be due to the way we that treat our environment.”
According to the Farmer’s Almanac it is supposed to cool down by the end of the month. The Almanac predicts fair and “quite cool” conditions.
