Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Indiana
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
509 AM EDT Wed May 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Wet weather will occur today through midday Thursday as low pressure
deepens over the Ohio valley and drifts north across Indiana.  This
low pressure system will move on to the east and a ridge of high
pressure will move east across Indiana Thursday night and early
Friday.   Wet weather will return late Friday through most of the
weekend as a frontal system and a couple of low pressure systems
move our way.   Temperatures will become a little cooler early
next week as an upper trough digs into the upper midwest.
