The temperature could hit 100 Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday

Forecasters say the temperature in Evansville next week could reach 100 degrees for the first time in nearly a decade. WNIN’s John Gibson has the story:

The National Weather Service says high temperatures will flirt with the century mark in the Tri-State Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Weather Service Meteorologist Derrick Snyder tells WNIN it will feel even hotter:

"With the humidity levels being elevated that'll create heat index values of 100-to-110 degrees each afternoon. So, definitely dangerous heat."

Snyder suggests preparing for the heat wave:

" This would be a good time to check on your air conditioner, make sure that it's working properly so it doesn't break down when the heat ramps up next week. If you have any outdoor activities planned like sports practices and stuff like that, consider moving them either to the early morning hours or to the evening hours."

The last time the weather service recorded 100 degrees in Evansville was July 25, 2012.
