Summer starts to heat up


Terre Haute, Ind. (WTHI) – This isn’t your typical summer. We can count all the days we’ve hit 90 degrees on one hand. We’ve seen a total of 4 days so far this summer. Can you believe that?
It might sound like a lot but we usually see near 26 days at 90 degrees or above for our summer.

July tends to light the sky with fireworks but also close to 11 days of 90 degree temperatures, this year, not even 1.

Now we want you to be ready for a surge of heat that is forecast for the end of this week. This will be the first time this summer that we see heat indices over 100° that can help aid to heat related illness.

Here are a few tips from the United States Department of Labor: Drink plenty of water, make sure you’re taking your breaks, and keep track of how long you’re out in the sun.

Heat advisories are just to the south, and warm air is creeping in, so make sure you stay updated with the storm team all week for your forecast. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
