Excessive Heat Warning Remains

It’s official - it’s excessively hot outside. The National Weather Service in Louisville has placed most of central Kentucky and southern Indiana under an excessive heat warning. Today’s high temperature is expected to be 97 degrees, but combined with humidity, it could feel as hot as 115. Friday and Saturday also have heat indexes ranging from 105 to 115. Temperatures in the low to mid-90s will continue into next week. To avoid peak temperatures, the weather service recommends that strenuous outdoor activities be scheduled for the early morning or evening hours.
