Our streets remain wet for the morning rush hour, but the afternoon looks fantastic.

Look for the high to reach 68 degrees by later this afternoon. That paves the way for even warmer air Saturday and Sunday.

The weekend will start dry and warm with highs in the 70s. It might be a few degrees cooler on Sunday, but that will depend on cloud cover.

Rain and storms are possible on Monday, too, as colder air moves back into Central Indiana. Lingering showers are in the Tuesday forecast, with highs only in the 50s.

On this day in 1961:  A tornado travels in a non-continuous path 60 miles from Shelbyville into Ohio. The tornado was a half-mile wide at times.
