    June 28, 2012 No comments

    The hottest temperatures in over 80 years will descend upon Hendricks County today and tomorrow. Temperatures are expected to top out near 104° today as a ridge of high pressure settles in over Indiana.

    The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for today and Friday. Along with the high temperatures, low humidity’s and high winds will help foster an extremely dangerous fire condition prompting a red flag warning for an extreme fire danger today. Residents are urged to use extreme caution as the slightest spark can lead to a dangerous fire.

    Along with the excessive heat warning and red flag warning, the National Weather Service is also designated today as an ozone action day.

    A burn ban is already in effect for all of Hendricks County until further notice. The dry conditions have already led to the cancellation of the Danville Fourth of July fireworks display while the town of Plainfield has stated that their holiday firework display will go on as planned.
