Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Indiana
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
401 AM EST Tue Dec 12 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Snow showers and flurries will impact parts of central Indiana today
as cyclonic flow and forcing aloft impact the region. High pressure
will briefly build in tonight before another strong upper level
system tracks through the region Wednesday afternoon and
evening...bringing another round of snow showers. Upper level
systems will pass through the lower Great Lakes with additional
chances for snow late Thursday night and Friday then again by late
weekend. Chilly temperatures through much of the rest of the work
week will warm over the weekend.
