Residents of Jackson County and the rest of south central Indiana may experience temperatures on Thursday and Friday that have not been felt here since 1988.
That’s the word from the National Weather Service, which is forecasting near-record breaking heat as a large ridge of high pressure extends into the Ohio River Valley.
The weather service is predicting that Thursday’s high may be a scorching 102 degrees with Friday’s high just slightly lower at 97 degrees. Heat indices both days are expected to be between 100 and 105 degrees.
