Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Indiana
National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
344 AM EDT Thu Aug 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Low pressure over the upper midwest will provide a warm and humid
southwest flow of air to Central Indiana today. This will result
in chances for showers and thunderstorms today. A cold front
associated with the low will pass through Indiana tonight ending
the rain chances.

Weak high pressure over the central Plains is expected to pass
across Indiana on Friday and and Friday evening...providing dry
weather.

A quick moving upper level weather disturbance is them expected
to sweep across the region overnight on Friday and early on
Saturday. This will result in another chance for showers and
storms.

The weekend will conclude and the next work week will start with
dry weather as large high pressure builds across the region.
