INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It was simply an amazing summer-like day across the state for our Tuesday! The warmest air of the year for many locations settled in with a strong breeze taking place as well. This very warm air will lead way for a wet Wednesday.

There is the chance for isolated strong to severe storms early Wednesday afternoon. The primary threats will be isolated damaging winds and hail.

Highs will remain above average as we will top out in the mid to upper 70s.
