Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Indiana
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
337 AM EST Sat Feb 17 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Scattered light rain...possibly mixed with snow...will impact
central Indiana later today and this evening as a quick moving
system passes through the Tennessee Valley. High pressure will bring
a brief return to dry weather tonight and Sunday. Several factors
coming together for the potential for an extended period of heavy
rain and flooding beginning early Monday and continuing through at
least the middle of the upcoming week as a frontal boundary becomes
stalled over the region. Low pressure tracking into the region next
weekend may bring another round of heavier rain.
