Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Northern Indiana
314 AM EDT Wed Sep 26 2018

Issued at 126 AM EDT Wed Sep 26 2018

Drier and cooler weather will follow for today through Friday with
highs in the 60s to around 70 with lows in the 40s to around 50
Wednesday night and Thursday night.


.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 312 AM EDT Wed Sep 26 2018

Showers accompanying a seasonably strong cold front will exit our far
eastern zones by or shortly after daybreak. Dry/cool advection the
story then post-frontal today with clearing stratocu west to
east. CAA will be somewhat offset by deeper mixing with highs
generally in the mid to upper 60s. Low level ridging builds in
tonight with light winds/dry airmass hinting at good radiational
cooling and lows into the 40s. Some concern that increasing mid-
high clouds may limit this somewhat. With that said continued
close to the inherited fcst and cooler guidance tonight.


.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Tuesday)
Issued at 312 AM EDT Wed Sep 26 2018

The pattern overall Thursday through Saturday will feature
quiet/cool conditions. There will be several pieces of pacific
shortwave energy to progress east through the Great Lakes with
longwave troughing remaining in place across the North-Central US
and central Canada. Lacking moisture return and more northerly track
of these features suggest nothing more than transient shots of
cooler/warmer air and perhaps a brief period of light rain Friday

Flow regime then flattens Sunday into early next week with warming
temps. This warm advection regime in increasing low level southwest
flow may generate some shower activity into later Saturday
night/Sunday morning.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Wednesday Night)
Issued at 544 PM EDT Tue Sep 25 2018

Post frontal MVFR based stratocu will linger through daybreak before
dissipating through this morning. VFR thereafter with gusty nwrly
winds to 20kts.
