INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. --Good Saturday evening! Temperatures today checked in above average, marking 32 days of above-average temperatures this fall season. Temperatures will be mild tonight with lows in the low 60s. We'll have a mostly clear sky with some patchy fog. Winds will also lighten up at 5-10 mph overnight.
Sunday will bring unseasonably warm weather with highs near 80 degrees. The record-high temperature for the day is 85 degrees.
80s are rare this late in October. In fact, Indy hasn't had more than two 80-degree days after October 15 since 1989.
It will turn breezy in the afternoon with gusts to 20 mph in Indy. Clouds will increase too with a batch of showers and storms moving into the metro from the northwest by mid-to-late morning. Rainfall amounts of a few hundredths of an inch are possible with higher amounts in any t-storms.
Monday will turn windy with gusts to 35 mph and temperatures soaring into the mid-80s. Winds could gust up to 35 mph. Indy could also see a record high minimum and maximum temperature. The record high minimum for the day is 62 degrees and the record high, 86. The forecast minimum is 67 and maximum, 85.
The same can be said Tuesday. More record warmth is possible. Tuesday will also be windy. As a strong low-pressure system moves north of the Great Lakes, there's a chance we see a couple of showers or storms in the evening Tuesday. We'll watch this chance.
Otherwise, models have another low moving in Wednesday/Thursday time frame with additional rain and storm chances. It will turn cooler into the end of the week. --Danielle Dozier
