Stretch of 70s in November first time in a decade

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Wednesday we saw our first 70-degree temperature in November since 2017. The mercury climbed to 72 degrees, which is well above the normal high of 58 for this time of year.

Friday begins a possible 5-day stretch of 70s. While it will likely be tough to set several new records, there are two days where it will be pretty close.

On Sunday the record high is 76 and Monday the record is 76, both set back in 1999. Forecast highs are expected to be in the low and middle 70s, inching close to tying or breaking a record.

This stretch of 70s is a little unusual. It’s the first time in a decade Indianapolis has seen this streak in November. The last time Indianapolis has recorded 5 or more days with temperatures at or above 70 was back in 2010. Temperatures from between Nov. 8 and 13 climbed into the 70s.

Here’s a look at the top five with five or more days at or above 70 in November. Notice the last two years 1953 and 1971, those stretches were in the third week of the month.
