A ridge of high pressure has settled in over the eastern US allowing a surge of heat and moisture to take over central Indiana.

Expect hazy, hot, and humid conditions over the next few days with highs in the lower 90s.

The standing record for Indianapolis today is 89° set in 1971... this is certainly in jeopardy with forecast highs in the 90s through the state.

Staying warm, muggy and mostly clear this evening with temperatures falling into the 70s.

Tomorrow will be a near repeat of today with hazy, hot and humid conditions as daytime highs will once again make a run at breaking a record.

That stands at 89° set in 1897 for Indianapolis. We're set to see 91.

Central Indiana will still be south of the boundary on Wednesday once again allowing for record warmth.

The all-time warmest temperature recorded in Indianapolis during the month of October is 91° set in 2007 -- this heat streak could potentially break that too.

The game changer will arrive early Thursday in the form of a potent cold front. There will be limited moisture with this system so widespread rain is not expected but what it will bring is a major drop in temperatures.

Much cooler air takes over by Friday into the weekend with highs back in the 60s and potentially overnight lows in the 40s.

Below average temperatures look to continue into next week.
