- Notably cooler by the end of the week.

Issued at 258 PM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

A "cold" front is moving in quickly as of this writing. Observations behind the cold front indicate little to no change in air temperature behind this front; a result of poor CAA aloft. Cumulus clouds are developing along the front, but 15-degree dew point depressions will largely prevent any precipitation from reaching the ground. Furthermore, cumulus has been shallow thus far today.
Forecast soundings depict a dry profile with steep low-level lapse rates and unidirectional shear. This front could still spark a thunderstorm or two, primarily near or southeast of Fort Wayne.
Confidence is low due to the modest nature of the cold front, disjointed upper-level support and in return, few to no storm coverage within CAMs. Generally discounting the wavering marginal severe weather outlook that once again clips the forecast area (Lima, OH).

Remaining unseasonably mild through Wednesday as ridging aloft quickly resumes. A trough moving onshore of the West Coast today eventually spawns a low in the Lee of the Rockies Monday night and Tuesday. Thus, showers and thunderstorms enter our forecast Tuesday and persist through at least Thursday. Severe thunderstorms are favored on Tuesday over Illinois, and some of this activity could cross into Indiana Tuesday night. Well ahead of the cold front forecast soundings suggest a marginal severe weather threat, with instability being the main limitation. Showers and storms along the cold front don't enter the forecast area until early Wednesday morning when plenty of wind shear persists along with ample lapse rates. While the overnight timing is not ideal for severe weather locally, thunderstorms appear likely in this environment. The marginal risk by SPC is welcomed. Thunderstorms can produce heavy rain, which may renew flood concerns especially where river levels are elevated. Through Saturday, forecast rainfall is near 0.75" to 1".

This low moves into Ontario by Thursday, likely pushing the pause button on POPs (especially in the morning). However, a shortwave arrives soon after bringing more rain and a dose of unseasonably cool air. As a result, unlike current conditions, expect cool temperatures next weekend with the risk of frost for some.

VFR conditions are expected at the TAF sites this period. A cold front is pushing southward this evening, with KSBN already in the clearing behind the front, and KFWA just about to experience a wind shift (may be occurring as I type) from WSW to NW. Winds will become variable and very light, becoming roughly ENE in the day tomorrow. Later in the afternoon we shift N-NW once again.
