Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Northern Indiana 646 AM EDT Wed May 27 2020
SYNOPSIS. Issued at 355 AM EDT Wed May 27 2020
Warm and humid conditions will persist again today. Highs today will be in the lower to middle 80s. Chances for showers and some embedded thunderstorms are possible again, especially late this afternoon into the evening hours. More showers and embedded thunderstorms will overspread the entire region late Thursday into early Friday, associated with a cold frontal system moving east through the area. Much cooler and dry conditions will then follow this weekend with highs only in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
SHORT TERM. (Today and Tonight) Issued at 357 AM EDT Wed May 27 2020
Southern Plains cutoff low to maintain through the short term period. Expect another day of isolated late afternoon/evening storms possible in moderate instability and low shear environment. Slightly richer moisture expected with pwat values into 1.5-1.75 inch range this afternoon/evening. Shortwave lifting north from eastern Kentucky may be impetus for convective development later today/afternoon. While overall severe risk is quite low, similar to yesterday a few stronger pulse storms could develop and briefly producing isolated thunderstorm wind gusts during collapse phase.
LONG TERM. (Thursday through Tuesday) Issued at 357 AM EDT Wed May 27 2020
Better chance and coverage of showers/storms Thursday, especially Thursday afternoon into early night period. Northern stream/southern Canada draws southern Plains system northeast. Light mid level flow within col again supports minimal deep layer shear. Showers/storms should still fire in prefrontal trough and along northern stream's attendant frontal zone. Cold front bifurcates CWA northeast/southwest fashion at 12 UTC Friday. Additional showers/storms expected to be ongoing or activity regrow upscale through early Friday afternoon. Thereafter surface ridge provides quite cool/dry weekend. Gradual moderation into next week. Have renounced blended pops for Mon-Wed next week given strength of upper level blocking ridge.
AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Thursday Morning) Issued at 646 AM EDT Wed May 27 2020
Convective cluster over central IN still expected to dissipate as it moves north and encounters more stable environment but would not entirely rule out a stray shower at the terminals during the morning hours. Better chances for convection still expected to be during and just after peak afternoon heating but morning cloud cover and early shortwave arrival still lead to low confidence in exact timing and coverage. Will hold with VCTS mention during the late afternoon. Otherwise VFR continues with light southerly winds.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
