More Heat To Come

July 18, 2011 Updated Jul 18, 2011 at 10:36 AM EDT

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Sunday was the 11th time this year we've hit 90° or hotter. We usually see about 14 days worth of 90+ temperatures in a typical summer. We'll hit that number and slide right past it this week. A Heat Advisory is in place today and an Excessive Heat Watch begins Tuesday and will be in place through Thursday.

The entire 7-day forecast has high temperatures reaching the low 90's. Factor in the humidity, and that means a heat index each day approaching the 100° mark. Overnight lows are only dropping to the low 70's each day this week.

The only chance for rain is a slim one, and that will be showing up this afternoon into Tuesday. For the most part, it's going to be an uncomfortably hot and sticky week without much rain.

The networks of Indiana's NewsCenter will always have the latest on our weather with Exclusive Pinpoint VIPIR HD.
