We'll have a mix of sun and clouds on Wednesday and start out with temperatures in the upper 60s and low 70s. Highs will jump back to near 90 degrees with a slight chance of an afternoon storm. Models show that the coverage won't be as widespread as thought a couple of days ago as the data has changed. The best chance for a shower through Wednesday appears across the southwest part of Indiana.

The 90-degree streak will continue into Friday before a cold front moves in. The cold front will help spark more widespread coverage of showers and storms. Ahead of the front, however, the heat index will get close to 100 degrees.
