Indiana Goes Warm to Wet to Windy

Hoosiers will get "weeks" of weather within two to three days as a fast-moving cold front targets the state at midweek.

After warming to between 65 and 75 degrees on Tuesday, the state will see 70-degree readings spread nearly statewide on Wednesday, as gusty southerly winds draw in warm air.

Meanwhile, a cold front triggering rain and a few thunderstorms over Illinois tomorrow will be knocking at Indiana's western door late in the day. This front will sweep through the state at night, giving wind-whipped rain and rumbles of thunder.

Thursday, the setting of brisk westerly winds, bearing cooler air, will lop 10 to 15 degrees off high temperatures. Those winds will gust 30 to 40 mph right into Thursday night, even topping at 50 mph in some areas.

So, to sum up, after a sampling of warmth and wet, it will feel very much like fall come Thursday and Friday.
