Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Northern Indiana
224 PM EST Fri Nov 24 2017

Issued at 217 PM EST Fri Nov 24 2017

Primarily dry conditions will persist through the weekend with
just a low chance for a few sprinkles tonight. After highs today
in the 50s, lows tonight should dip to around 40. Highs this
weekend should be around 45. There are a few chances for light
precipitation next week but conditions will remain largely dry
with temperatures above normal.


.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Saturday)
Issued at 223 PM EST Fri Nov 24 2017

A cold front will move across the area tonight. Very dry
conditions aloft should only allow for a few sprinkles. Very
limited cold air will be able to reach the area, so highs Saturday
will still be a little above normal.


.LONG TERM...(Saturday Night through Friday)
Issued at 223 PM EST Fri Nov 24 2017

A mild and relatively inactive pattern can be expected through
next Thursday as the flow remains high zonal with a few weak
systems impacting the area. Temperatures should rise much above
normal early next week as an upper level ridge builds north of the
Ohio Valley in response to an active pattern along the western
North America Coast. Some energy in the form of a short wave trof
or upper level low should move east of the Mississippi River by
the middle of next week. There was a very large model spread
favoring low confidence in the timing and duration with any
precipitation associated with this system. For this package, kept
a chance for mainly light rain from late Tuesday into Thursday.


.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Saturday Morning)
Issued at 615 AM EST Fri Nov 24 2017

VFR conditions will continue through today with very dry low level
profiles. A moisture-starved shortwave and cold front will cross
the area tonight with gusty SSW winds expected ahead of it. Low
level dry air will limit precip potential but some brief MVFR
ceilings may be possible early Saturday morning given modest
postfrontal CAA.


LM...Gale Warning until 10 PM EST this evening for LMZ043-046.
