FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) ▬ Saturday was the 4th straight day with 90°F or more in Fort Wayne. Last time this happened was July 16-19, 2013. So the duration of this first summer heatwave is unusual, but not unheard of. Isolated thunderstorms are still possible through the early evening with a low of 68°F.
Sunday we are forecasting day 5 of the 90°F for Fort Wayne, mostly sunny skies and a small chance for an isolated thunderstorm into the heat of the afternoon.
Monday still hot with 90°F again. Heat index will be between 95°F-100°F with partly cloudy skies. Isolated thunderstorms are still possible, but as we have seen this past week most of us remain hot and dry. Last time we saw more than 4 days of consecutive 90°F+ was June 27-July 18, 2012. This is the all time record of consecutive 90s in the Fort, 22 days!
We break the 90s streak Tuesday with partly cloudy skies. More widespread showers and thunderstorms are likely with a high of 89°F.
We continue to tracking high into the upper 80s and higher chances of showers and thunderstorms. Some of which could be strong.
There is a cold front we are also tracking that could bring in some slightly below average temperatures by next week.
