The summer heat should subside by Friday.

Forecasters at the National Weather Service in Indianapolis say the temperature of 96 degrees breaks the record high temperature for the date. But, add in the humid atmosphere and it feels more like the upper 90s to near 100 degrees right now.

The previous record was 95 degrees in 1983 and 1964. They say with several hours of daytime heat remaining, it’s possible to record a higher temperature before the afternoon is over. Look for isolated storms after 2 p.m.

A heat advisory remains in effect for far eastern Indiana until 7 p.m. An approaching cold front will move through the area Wednesday evening and Thursday bringing temperatures into the lower 70s by Friday.
