Yesterday's high was 77 degrees, which smashed the the daily record high of 72 set in 2016, and is now the warmest February temperature on record for Indianapolis, eclipsing 76 reached in 2000.

The rain and dropping temperatures this morning come courtesy of a cold front that is bringing the widespread gusty storms to the entire region. The steady rain continues during the morning rush hour so be prepared! A flood watch expires at 7 am.

Many areas will get between 1" to 3" of rain by early afternoon. In its wake, much colder air filters in with temperatures dropping from near 60 at midnight to the upper 30s or low 40s by 8 a.m.

Overcast skies, rain, and a brisk northwest wind keep temperatures mainly in the 30s much of today, and the wind chill in the 20s makes it feel 50 degrees colder than Tuesday.

Another burst of rain continues Thursday morning as a front stalls out to our south. Surface temperatures could be cold enough north of Indianapolis to allow some freezing rain or sleet to occur before temperatures climb into the 40s.

More widespread rain is on tap Friday into Sunday morning, and this could deposit another 1" to 3" with some areas even higher.

Some forecast models suggest enough ingredients in play Saturday night for potentially severe storms.

Keep in mind we could see several areas of flooding over the next few days near rivers, streams and creeks.

If you can hang in, the rain ends Sunday morning.
