Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Northern Indiana 642 AM EDT Fri Oct 30 2020

SYNOPSIS. Issued at 402 AM EDT Fri Oct 30 2020

Other than some light lake effect rain and possibly snow showers early this morning across southwest Lower Michigan and northwest Indiana, dry conditions will prevail through Saturday. A cold front will move through Sunday, bringing windy and cold weather Sunday along with additional chances for light rain showers through Sunday evening, primarily north of U.S. 30. High pressure then will move in for the workweek, with dry conditions. High temperatures will be in the 40s and 50s through Tuesday with 60s expected Wednesday through next weekend.

SHORT TERM. (Today and Tonight) Issued at 345 AM EDT Fri Oct 30 2020

Chilly air was continuing to spread over the area allowing lake effect rain showers to form and move inland. Thermal profiles show the rain may mix with snow, but no accumulations are expected. Inversion heights are quite low, and will continue to fall during the day, causing an end to the showers. Clouds will decrease late today into tonight as subsidence increases with lows dropping to around 30 or a little bit colder at locally colder spots.

LONG TERM. (Saturday through Thursday) Issued at 345 AM EDT Fri Oct 30 2020

Return flow will increase Saturday as the high pressure area moves east and as a strong cold front approaches from the northwest. Some showers are possible associated with the front, but an overall dry airmass and a north low track will not be able to yield much in the way of precipitation. The cold front will race through the forecast area early Sunday. It looks like temperatures will continue to fall after daybreak Sunday, and may drop close to freezing around noon over northwest Indiana. There is a good chance a wind advisory may be needed as winds increase with sustained speeds around 30 mph and gusts to 45 mph. After Sunday, the cold air will only be over the area briefly before temperatures rise above normal. The upper level flow will become high zonal with a high west to east component allowing temperatures to rise above normal. Upper level heights will continue to rise in response to a deep upper low and trof over western North America. Highs in at least in the 60s are likely starting Wednesday, with the chance to break 70 degrees late in the week and through next weekend. No rain is expected after Sunday.

AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Saturday Morning) Issued at 640 AM EDT Fri Oct 30 2020

Dry air above low level inversion and relatively shallow lake induced instability has limited areal coverage of lake effect precip this morning. Sheared upper level vort max associated with upper level jet streak shifting across the southern Great Lakes will depart to the east early this morning allowing for broad synoptic scale subsidence across northern Indiana. A few more hours of TEMPO MVFR cigs is expected this morning before low clouds dissipate, with slightly longer possible duration of these conditions at KSBN due to lake effect. Otherwise, VFR conditions expected remainder of this period as broad low level anticyclone builds in today leading to light and variable winds tonight.

IWX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. IN . Lakeshore Flood Watch from late Saturday night through Monday morning for INZ003.

MI . Lakeshore Flood Watch from late Saturday night through Monday morning for MIZ077.

OH . NONE. LM . Gale Watch from Saturday afternoon through late Sunday night for LMZ043-046.

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.
