INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — What a fantastic Thursday we had in the middle of January! Temperatures were near or just above 50° for the southern half of the state while locations to the far north stayed much cooler.

Thursday night: Clouds will be on the increase tonight as temperatures will plummet into the low to mid 20s. With a light breeze, the feels like temperature will be in the teens.
