Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Northern Indiana
114 AM EDT Fri Jul 28 2017

Issued at 744 PM EDT Thu Jul 27 2017

An isolated shower is possible Friday afternoon as another upper
level disturbance crosses the southern Great Lakes. Following this,
a period of cooler, drier and rainfree weather is expected for the
weekend into early next week. Lows tonight will drop into the middle
60s. Highs on Friday will be in the upper 70s. Over the weekend
highs will be in the upper 70s with overnight lows in the middle


.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Friday)
Issued at 231 PM EDT Thu Jul 27 2017

MCV currently centered over southern Kosciusko county will continue
to drift slowly SE through this evening. Trough axis also slowly
dropping SE. Some clearing trends noted on the northern fringes of
the area with widely scattered showers still popping here and there
from diurnal heating. Have trended slowly down with pops and pushing
things SE with time lingering into the evening. Some hints of
slightly faster trends and decreasing coverage may warrant an update
and subsequent lowering.

Main upper level trough will sweep through Friday with chc of
showers/storms in E/NE Friday. No real concerns with lower moisture
available, reducing heavy rain threat.


.LONG TERM...(Friday Night through Thursday)
Issued at 231 PM EDT Thu Jul 27 2017

Upper level trough will exit Friday night with seasonable
temperatures and dry weather to dominate through at least Sunday and
likely through mid week. Pieces of energy will drift southeast along
the periphery of the upper trough with spurious pops showing up
in gridded data. Can`t completely discount a small chance in NE
areas, but just not worth a mention at this point. Stronger wave
begins to approach and dig into the area with slgt chc to chc pops
warranted as upper level ridging buckles somewhat.

Seasonable temperatures expected through the period.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Friday Night)
Issued at 108 AM EDT Fri Jul 28 2017

VFR/dry through the TAF cycle outside of low chances for MVFR vis
restrictions early this morning at KFWA. Drier low level air makes
better inroads during the day Friday with northeasterly winds
gusting up to 20 knots by this afternoon.
