Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Northern Indiana 1223 PM EDT Sun Mar 29 2020

SYNOPSIS. Issued at 1223 PM EDT Sun Mar 29 2020

Strong southwest winds will continue to gust up to 50 mph this afternoon into early this evening as deep low pressure tracks into the Great Lakes region. A few rain showers and mainly cloudy skies are expected otherwise this afternoon with mostly dry conditions and near to below temperatures to follow for next week.

SHORT TERM. (Today and Tonight) Issued at 302 AM EDT Sun Mar 29 2020

As a cold front sweeps across the region this morning, tight surface pressure gradients, combined with strong southwest to west winds aloft, will create very windy conditions. There will be some initial clearing directly behind the front, but then altostratus will fill in from the west by late morning as wrap around moisture gets trapped under a mid-level inversion. Widely scattered showers could also materialize by afternoon, especially across northern portions of the forecast area where there will be better lift associated with the upper low moving through Michigan. Showers and winds will gradually diminish overnight as the low progresses eastward, away from the area.

LONG TERM. (Monday through Saturday) Issued at 302 AM EDT Sun Mar 29 2020

High pressure moving in behind the low will favor mostly dry conditions on Monday, but there could be a few lingering showers. The ridge will move over the area on tuesday and remain in place through Friday, so dry weather is expected. A somewhat slow moving cold front is forecast to arrive on Saturday, but there is some model variability in timing and therefore precipitation amounts. Do expect a good chance of rain with this system though. Temperatures will be near to below normal through this period with highs in the 40s and 50s, and lows mainly in the 30s.

AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday Afternoon) Issued at 1223 PM EDT Sun Mar 29 2020

Southwest winds will continue to gust between 35 and 50 knots this afternoon into early this evening as a deep low pressure system tracks into the Northern Great Lakes. A few showers will also remain possible during this time within a high MVFR to low VFR stratocu deck. Winds will eventually veer more to the west and diminish some into tonight and Monday.

IWX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. IN . Wind Advisory until 8 PM EDT /7 PM CDT/ this evening for INZ003>009-012>018-020-022>027-032>034.

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.
