Take precautions from the heat and watch your friends, family and pets. The heat will linger into the weekend with highs in the range of 95-100 degrees Saturday and Sunday.
A couple of storms moved across northern Indiana Thursday night. The weather system triggering those storms will be close enough for a storm or 2 Friday – Sunday. This won’t be the widespread rain we need to get rid of the severe drought, but at least there is a chance for rain. Indianapolis is on pace to be the driest June on record, with only .05″ this month. The driest is .36″ in June of 1988.
