Much of Indiana could see record-breaking temperatures over the next few days. Indianapolis-based National Weather Service Meteorologist Dave Tucek says temperatures on Saturday could top 65 degrees--the record for that date back in 1991.

Tucek says high temperatures today through Sunday should remain in the low-to mid-60s.

"We have a fairly strong weather system that's coming ashore in the Pacific Northwest right now, and it's going to move into the plains states, and that's just going to be pulling a lot of warm, moist air upwards from the Gulf of Mexico," he says. "And the end result here is for us to have quite mild temperatures."

Tucek adds the moist air does add to the possibility of rain.
