Warmer today, then rain returns tonight

Chuck Lofton

If you like it warmer, then today is your day. Highs today reach 70 degrees for the first time since mid-October.

Much of today will be sunny, but an approaching cool front will trigger a line of rain and thunder tonight. It's subject to change, but early call for arrival time in the Indianapolis metro is between 6pm and 8pm. We don't anticipate severe weather, but a rain or lightning delay is possible if you plan to attend the Indianapolis Indians home opener. Make sure you bring a raincoat with you just in case.

Mild weather into the weekend with highs in the 70s both days. A slower arrival time on the next front to impact the region will lead to a good portion of Sunday being dry.

We really don't need any more rain - we have already had nearly 3.5 inches of rain so far this month already.
