Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the Southern Great Lakes
National Weather Service Northern Indiana
446 AM EDT Sun Apr 30 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Low pressure over northeast Oklahoma this morning will move
slowly northeast into the upper Great Lakes by Monday. This will
result in warmer temperatures across our area today and cooler
conditions again Monday. Showers and scattered thunderstorms with
locally heavy rainfall are expected to continue in the area
through tonight. Scattered showers along with windy conditions are
expected Monday and Monday night, with showers diminishing
Tuesday as the low moves slowly away from our area. High pressure
will build into the area Tuesday night and Wednesday providing
fair weather, but temperatures will remain below normal for early
May.
