Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Indiana
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
456 AM EDT Fri May 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Active weather is expected through the holiday weekend as a frontal
boundary oscillates over the region and interacts with upper level
waves moving through the Ohio Valley. Expect multiple opportunities
for strong to severe storms with heavy rainfall until a cold front
sweeps through the area late Sunday. With the exception of a
secondary front bringing low chances for storms Tuesday...expect
primarily dry weather for much of next week with seasonable
temperatures.
