Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Northern Indiana 250 PM EDT Thu Jul 2 2020

SYNOPSIS. Issued at 427 AM EDT Thu Jul 2 2020

Dry and hot weather conditions will persist through the holiday weekend. High temperatures will be in the lower to middle 90s Friday into next week.

SHORT TERM. (This Evening through Friday) Issued at 235 PM EDT Thu Jul 2 2020

Upper ridge remains in place today which has resulted in temperatures soaring back into the mid to upper 80s. Overall pattern remains the same on Friday as the ridge axis slowly drops across the area to allow temperatures to rise a few degrees. The result will be highs in the 90s areawide with mid-90s possible across NW Ohio. Outside of an isolated shower along the lake breeze, the forecast remains void of rain chances.

LONG TERM. (Friday Night through Thursday) Issued at 235 PM EDT Thu Jul 2 2020

Late Friday night into Saturday morning will see a weak shortwave round the crest of the ridge while diving southwards across the forecast area. Some model guidance suggest that this shortwave will help to spark a few showers. Have maintained a dry forecast at this time as there won't be significant moisture for this feature to work with as it dives across the area.

Ridge slowly weakens over the Midwest Sunday into Monday and allows the upper pattern become zonal by Tuesday. This will help to bring chance for rain back into the forecast Tuesday night into the second half of the week as shortwaves propagate through the westerlies. Will also have to keep an eye on heat indices/highs late next week as we could be approaching Heat Advisory levels.

AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Friday Afternoon) Issued at 1230 PM EDT Thu Jul 2 2020

VFR through the period under the influence of ridging sfc and aloft entrenched across the wrn Great Lakes.

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.
