INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Spring-like temperatures settle in for the second half of the week. Rain chances return heading into the weekend.


Areas of high pressure is camping out over the state this morning, leaving us quiet, chilly and mainly clear.

Our winds shift to the south later this morning. Combined with a lot of sunshine, expect temperatures to surge through the day. Highs top out in the low/mid 50s, with some southern counties flirting 60° later this afternoon.

Wednesday night:

A few clouds rolling in combined with the southerly winds should keep temperatures less cold overnight. Lows fall to the upper 30s/lower 40s.


Upper level wave will approach the state for the late week. Expect clouds increasing through the day. A tightening pressure gradient will allow for strong winds as we get deeper into the day, with wind gusts exceeding 30mph at times.

Much of the day will be dry, although a few stray showers could be possible as early as late afternoon. Temperatures will be quite warm for this time of year, topping out in the upper 50s/lower 60s.

Scattered showers will then fill in bit later Thursday night into Friday morning.


A few light showers possible early Friday, but much of the day appears to be breezy, cloudy and mild, with highs in the lower 60s.


Pattern remains somewhat active. A few showers *could* be possible, but at this point chances seem rather low. Meanwhile, temperatures will be considerably cooler, but still well above average. Highs top out in the lower 50s Saturday and mid/upper 40s Sunday.

8 day forecast:

Shower chances continue into Monday. Big story will be a return to more seasonably temperatures for the long term. Highs return to the lower 40s through mid-week.
