STATEWIDE–After a cold Monday and Tuesday across Indiana, you can expect warmer temperatures and the return of rain that could be heavy at times on Wednesday.

“There is a storm system approaching Indiana from Missouri. A strong cold front will be crossing Indiana from west to east Wednesday night. Ahead of the front is where the rain threat lies,” said Alex McGinnis, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.

McGinnis believes it will be during a “brief window late day Wednesday and early Wednesday evening.”

“There will be soaking rain for pretty much the whole state. Certainly, there will be heavier rain amounts the further south you go. There will be a bit of a thunderstorm threat once you get into far southwestern Indiana,” said McGinnis.

Temperatures will get into the 70s on Wednesday.

“If you like warm weather, enjoy Wednesday. It will be the only day with temperatures above normal. Winds will also be strong. Gusts will be up to around 40 mph,” said McGinnis.

Highs will drop into the 50s and even into the 40s in some places starting Thursday.
