Gusty winds fuel this late May feel with gusts topping 40 mph in Indianapolis through 3 p.m. this afternoon.
Rain is coming but still several hours until it arrives (estimated 9-10 p.m. in Indianapolis) and as early as 7-8 p.m. far western counties.
Heavy downpours are possible along with higher rainfall amounts in and around thunderstorms. Upwards of 1 to 2 inches of rain could fall by Wednesday afternoon.
Get out and enjoy this unusual warmth. A cold front arrives overnight and temperature will fall sharply, dropping nearly 40-degrees by sunrise!
