INDIANAPOLIS — The National Weather Service is warning parts of Indiana might experience record heat over the holiday weekend, and dry conditions have prompted at least one county to ban most open burning.
The weather service says a large high pressure area over the southeastern U.S. will send very warm air into Indiana. It forecasts high temperatures in central Indiana will be in the lower to middle 90s.
The Vigo County Commissioners in Terre Haute on Thursday banned open burning through Tuesday morning. The ban covers campfires unless they're in a fire ring.
The weather service says drought conditions exist over much of northern Indiana and southwestern Indiana.
