Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Indiana
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
309 AM EDT Wed Mar 29 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Dry weather is expected today as high pressure over the Great
lakes will depart the region. Meanwhile a powerful low pressure
system over the southern plains will be pushing northeast toward
the Ohio Valley. This system will push into central Indiana late
Wednesday night and Thursday....bringing rain chances along with a
few isolated thunderstorms back to Indiana.

The upper low will remain over the area on Friday...ending the
work week on a wet note.

Dry weather is expected for much of the weekend as high pressure
builds in the wake of the departing low. More showers will return
to the area next work week as yet another low pressure system
arrives in the region.
