Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the Southern Great Lakes
National Weather Service Northern Indiana
447 AM EDT Wed Mar 29 2017

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure moving across the Great Lakes will provide dry weather
with increasing easterly winds today. Showers are expected to move
into western portions of the area tonight as a low pressure system
approaches from the southern plains. Showers will overspread the
entire area Thursday and continue Thursday night as the low moves
into our area. Thunderstorms and locally heavy rainfall are also
possible in this timeframe. Rain will end Friday as the low moves off
to the east. High pressure will then build in providing dry weather
on Saturday.
