INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Yesterday was fantastic wasn't it? Today, we are looking at another mild day, well above normal but without a lot of sunshine. Most of our computer guidance suggests an overcast day with a couple of brief showers or a sprinkle.

We are still on the march to reach some records for warmth the next few days. The records are...most 60° days in February (8 in 1976), most 60° days before March (13 in 1880), and the most consecutive 60° days before March (7 in 1930) all tumble Friday when highs near 70° in what will be the city's 8th straight day above 60°.

All of this in what would be the 4th warmest February on record if the month ended today. The average temperature this month of near 40° is nearly 9° above normal. Snowfall to date would be the 8th least snowiest season on record since 1871.

I am calling for a high of 66 today, but the record high of 68° today could be tied if the the cloud deck thins enough due to a much warmer start than the past few days.

I see the possibility of rain and a thunderstorm along a warm front Thursday and mark the beginning of an unsettled stretch heading into the weekend. We're still looking at a possible storm system Friday into Saturday that will bring strong gusty winds, storms and a big drop in temperatures come Saturday. This shot of cold lasts for the weekend we start warming up again next week.
