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.

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
