Michiana reacts to warmer temperatures

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Winter is finally over and summer is creeping in with 80 degree temperatures expected for this week. Folks in Michiana are very excited. 

Fans at a Clay High School track meet were happy to be enjoying the sun while sitting on the bleachers as opposed to having to sit under an umbrella in much colder temperatures.

Head coach for the Riley High School girls track team, Marie Doan, says she is planning on doing things a little differently at their next practice.

“I have plans to have a great practice. Just enjoying it. I think we’re to going to actually something fun like a water balloon fight, just to get the girls excited about the season,” said Doan.

Another person at the meet was not afraid to share his true feelings for winter. 

“It started in early October and went until now. So, it’s probably the longest winter I can remember,” said Alex North.


As we get back into the swing of things with warm temperatures, one thing to remember if you plan on going for a run or walking the dog, is to stay hydrated and take frequent breaks.
