A beautiful day Monday but changes are on the way later this afternoon.

Clouds will increase through the afternoon with a mild south wind allowing temperatures to climb into the low 70s. There is a chance of scattered showers by afternoon and rain will be likely by evening. A few isolated thunderstorms are possible, although no severe weather is expected.

Rain will be out of Central Indiana by mid-morning Tuesday. It will be cooler thanks to the cold front, with a high in the low 60s.

The skies will clear out by Tuesday evening with temperatures falling into the upper 30s. Patchy frost will be possible but a nice rebound will take place by Wednesday afternoon with temperatures climbing into the low to mid 50s.

The 70s return on Thursday and Friday, but so does the rain. Showers and thunderstorms will be likely by Thursday night.
