Record-Breaking Heat Expected This Weekend

A weekend with little cloud cover could bring temperatures in the high 90s.

Indiana could experience record-breaking heat this weekend, according to predictions from the National Weather Service.

The NWS’s current record for May 26 and 27 was set in 1911 when a heat wave pushed temperatures up to 94 degrees Fahrenheit on both days in Indianapolis. Forecasts for Saturday show the high at 93 degrees. Temperatures are expected to reach 96 degrees Sunday, which would break the century-old record.

Temperatures should drop quickly next week down to the low-80s and mid-70s by midweek, NWS forecasts show.
