Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Northern Indiana 632 AM EST Tue Jan 28 2020

SYNOPSIS. Issued at 353 AM EST Tue Jan 28 2020

Very light snow and patchy drizzle and freezing drizzle can be expected early this morning that may cause a few slick spots on roads. The light precipitation should end early tonight with dry conditions from Wednesday through Friday. Highs the rest of the week will be from 35 to 40 each day with lows around 25 to 30.

SHORT TERM. (Today and Tonight) Issued at 353 AM EST Tue Jan 28 2020

Moisture will remain trapped under the base of a strong subsidence inversion. Upstream lake moist from virtually ice-free lakes should help prevent any breaks in the cloud cover. Very light snow mixed with light drizzle and freezing drizzle will continue early today with early morning temperatures near 32 degrees. Minor traffic issues area possible with some very light snow or possibly ice accumulations. Temperatures will rise a few degrees above freezing later today and will help end and travel problems. Lows tonight will drop several degrees below freezing, but should stay above most computer guidance given abundant cloud cover and limited cold air advection.

LONG TERM. (Wednesday through Monday) Issued at 353 AM EST Tue Jan 28 2020

Temperatures will become very mild into this weekend as an upper level ridge builds north across the Ohio River. Have kept the forecast dry Wednesday through Friday and then have little if any precipitation into early next week. Some energy that may eject into the area in the form of an upper trof and bring some light rain or light snow this coming weekend. At this time, it does not appear there will be an significant travel issues through next week Monday. 850 mb temperatures indicate highs could easily top 50 degrees Monday.

AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Wednesday Morning) Issued at 630 AM EST Tue Jan 28 2020

A weak low amplitude disturbance will continue to drop southeast across the southern Great Lakes over the next few hours. This disturbance combined with lake effect/enhancement has led to occasional snow showers/flurries. Moisture depths are limited with this setup which has also introduced some mixed precip and some drizzle/freezing drizzle concerns at the terminals. Precip rates are a bit lower than yesterday however, with higher cloud bases likely limiting intensity of the drizzle/freezing drizzle. Some patchy drizzle may persist into this afternoon as a weak sfc trough stalls across northern Indiana. Cigs may fluctuate between lower end MVFR and IFR through mid to late morning in association with pockets of drizzle precip type, but generally expecting MVFR cigs this afternoon. Some improvement to near or above fuel alternate criteria is expected later this afternoon into tonight, although if this improvement does occur, diurnal tendencies and weak northeasterly flow may take cigs back below 2000 feet tonight. Some lingering patchy drizzle is possible early evening at KSBN, but primarily dry conditions are expected late this evening into early Wednesday morning.

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.
