Indiana temperatures will wax October-like Wednesday and again on Thanksgiving Day as mild air precedes a late-week cold shot.

Wednesday, dry, mild weather will ease the way for holiday travelers throughout Indiana, although the day may start with patchy fog.

Indianapolis residents, along with many others across the Hoosier state, will see enough sunshine for readings to top 60 degrees.

Thanksgiving Day will warm a bit more, reaching 65 degrees in spots in the state's southern half.

A cold front will sweep through the state Thursday night and Friday, triggering some rain followed by a dive in temperature. Saturday, most of Indiana will register highs in the 30s. Young
