Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the Southern Great Lakes
National Weather Service Northern Indiana
404 AM EDT Thu Jul 27 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect areas mainly
along and south of Route 30 this morning before diminishing. A
frontal boundary will drop southward and stall across central
Indiana later today. This front may result in isolated to
scattered showers and thunderstorms redeveloping this afternoon.
Low chances of rain showers may linger into this evening, with
mainly dry conditions overnight tonight. An upper level
disturbance will then drop southeast out of Canada for Friday
providing another chance of showers and thunderstorms for south
central Lower Michigan, far northeast Indiana, and northwest Ohio.
High pressure will move southeast across the Great Lakes behind this
disturbance Friday night through Sunday night.
