INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Feb. 27, 2016)--Good Saturday afternoon! It's been a sunny day with highs in the mid-50s across the area. Temperatures have been more typical of mid-March and running 10 degrees above average this afternoon.

Tonight look for lows in the low 40s with breezy southwest winds and a mostly clear sky. A low pressure will track through Wisconsin, Michigan and Canada through Sunday night and allow for winds to ramp up during the day Sunday. Expect sustained southwest winds 20-30 mph with gusts to 45 mph.

The low pressure will also push a cold front through the area Sunday evening, bringing a chance of showers and possible a t-storm to central Indiana by dinner time. No storms, if they develop, are expected to be severe. Ahead of the front, temperatures will rise into the mid-60s. This is 20 degrees above average and near the record high temperature of 68 degrees set back in 1895.
