Update
The aviation section has been updated below.

Synopsis
Issued at 239 am edt Sat sep 23 2017
high pressure is expected across the area through the early parts of
next week. A frontal system may affect the area towards the middle
of next week.

Near term today
Issued at 239 am edt Sat sep 23 2017
some fog starting to show up on recent observations. Expecting some
patchy fog through the mid morning hours.

Otherwise, not seeing anything in the model data to serve as a
precipitation trigger, so will continue with a dry forecast under
strong ridging aloft.

Low level thicknesses suggest the GFS mos highs for today look
reasonable, so little if any adjustments planned.

Short term tonight through Monday night
Issued at 239 am edt Sat sep 23 2017
model data suggest only a slight progression to the long wave
features expected during this period, with the local area remaining
under the influence of upper ridging. Operational and ensemble data
suggest little threat for precipitation, so will keep the forecast
dry through the period.

Progged low level thicknesses suggest the GFS mos temperature
guidance in the later periods continues to look too cool. Will bump
up the guidance temperatures about 2-5 degrees each period.

Long term Tuesday through Friday
Issued at 245 am edt Sat sep 23 2017
good confidence on at least mostly dry and warm weather through
Tuesday under the influence of a persistent ridge. After that, good
confidence a cold front and cyclonic flow will bring much cooler
weather to the area with the potential for a few showers at times.

Blend looks to handle temperatures reasonably, but confidence in
timing and coverage of pops is low. The blend just brings sporadic
low pops to small parts of central indiana Wednesday and Friday.

With confidence low, will just accept the blend regarding pops.

Aviation discussion for the 231200z tafs
Issued at 632 am edt Sat sep 23 2017
patchy visibility restrictions in fog expected to dissipate by the
mid morning hours.

Otherwise, some diurnal cloud development based around 035
expected during the midday hours today. Light surface winds early
this morning will become 090-120 degrees at 5-8 kts by midday.

Ind watches warnings advisories
None.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
