NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORTHERN INDIANA
430 AM EDT Wed Mar 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure accompanied by cold and very dry air will move
southeast across the Great Lakes today and tonight. Temperatures and
moisture will gradually increase Thursday as a warm front approaches
from the southwest. There is a chance of showers as this front moves
across our area Thursday afternoon and Thursday night. With the warm
front to our north Friday, warm and dry conditions are expected. A
low pressure system will move slowly northeast from the southern
Plains Friday night through Saturday night, likely causing showers in
our area with temperatures remaining above normal.
