AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION

The main feature of interest through the short term continues to be
the nearly stacked low centered over southern Indiana. Today through
Saturday this low will move very little with the exception of
perhaps retrograding back to the west slightly. This slight
retrograding on Friday night and Saturday will bring the chance for
very light precipitation over the eastern CWA during that time
frame. Temperatures today through Saturday will be very seasonable
with highs in the low to mid 70s.

Temperatures will begin to warm a few degrees on Sunday as the
stacked low finally shifts east into the eastern Great Lakes.
Shortwave ridging will build into the region out ahead of a upper
level trough digging into the western Rockies. Highs Sunday will be
in the mid 70s. Temperatures on Monday will further warm into the
mid 70s to near 80 as the ridge axis moves directly over the area.
Strong WAA on Tuesday out ahead of an approaching cold front
associated with the aforementioned upper level trough will allow
temperatures to remain in the upper 70s to near 80 despite
increasing cloud cover. Storms will be possible beginning late
Tuesday into Wednesday as the cold front pushes through the forecast
area.
