Indian Summer

A message from the NWS in Indianapolis:

The temperature has reached 70 degrees today (Friday) at the Indianapolis airport, making this the 5th consecutive day with a high temperature of 70 degrees or higher. This has occurred only 3 times after the 7th of November. The last time was in 1971 from November 14-18. The longest stretch of 70 degree weather after the 7th is 6 days. This occurred from November 14-19, 1953. Although the high temperature Saturday is not forecast to get up to 70, if it does we will tie the record. A cold front will move through the area by Saturday night, however, bringing the string of warm days to an end.

Weather records began at Indianapolis in February 1871.
