Eight Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune This Warm Spell Heads For Record INDIANAPOLIS (UPD - Indiana's current warm spell was in its sixth day today, but actually it dates back to April 21. The last .four weeks may be just about the warmest such period in Hoosier weather records. Although frosts and freezing temperatures at .Indianapolis are rather common through much of May, the last freezing temperature recorded here this year was 31 on April 20. Since then, the temperature has failed to drop below 42, and since April 24 it has failed to fall below 46. The mean, or' average, temperature last month up t 0 April 20 was 43.8 degrees; In the last 10 days of the month, the mercury climbed to 80 or.. above on five days and in the upper 70s on three others, and the month ended with an average temperature of 51. Only two days of the first 16 days of May -were on the coolish . side, and there have been five days of 80 or above temperatures and sev.en others between 70 and SO. . Nighttime temperatures, 'which ordinarily drop to the 40s and 50s this time of year, have been in the 60s eight of the last 25 nights and in the 50s on 12 other nights. There have been numerous record-setting warm spells in April and May in the 90 years weather records have been kept. But most of them were no longer than four days long. There was 1946 -when it was above 80 from April 1-3; 1929 when it was above 80 April 4-7; 1930 when it was above 80 April 10-12; 1896 when it was above 80'April 15-18. In 1949, .it was 87 on May 3 and 90 each day for the next three days. This year, the average tempera ture at Indianapolis since April 21 has been 65.34 degrees. When you consider the 'normal for the entire month of April is 50.8 and normal for the month of May is 61.8, this is a uniquely warm average. Continuation of the present warmth over much of the-rest of May could well establish a record. The present record warm May was in 1896 when the average, temperature was 70.8 degrees. But nature has a way of balancing the weather, -and nobody knows" what "tomorrow" will bring. . Last year, for example, on May 27 the • temperature dipped to 31 degrees, one below freezing. It was the latest in the season that a temperature So low had been recorded since weather records began in 1871.
