Fort Wayne, IN – Northern Indiana is bracing for a significant heatwave this week, with the heat index expected to climb above 100 degrees. The US National Weather Service has forecasted a warming trend, with temperatures reaching the mid-80s to low-90s by Thursday.

A cold front moving through late Thursday afternoon into the evening is expected to bring scattered thunderstorms. There is a marginal risk for isolated strong to severe storms, particularly northwest of US 24. These storms could bring damaging winds, heavy rain, and large hail.

Hot and humid conditions are anticipated to persist from Sunday into early next week. Residents are advised to take necessary precautions to stay safe during the heatwave. This includes staying hydrated, avoiding strenuous outdoor activities during peak heat hours, and checking on vulnerable individuals such as the elderly and those with health conditions.

The heat index, which combines air temperature and humidity to reflect how hot it feels, could reach up to 105 degrees. The National Weather Service recommends limiting outdoor activities, finding cool or air-conditioned places, and ensuring pets have access to water and shade.

With the extreme heat and potential for severe weather, preparedness is crucial. Stay updated with local weather forecasts and heed any advisories or warnings issued by authorities.
