Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Northern Indiana 1234 AM EST Sun Mar 7 2021

SYNOPSIS. Issued at 1230 AM EST Sun Mar 7 2021

A dramatic warm up is still expected through Wednesday with highs climbing into the upper 50s and low to mid 60s. Chances for showers and maybe even a rumble of thunder increase from west to east Wednesday afternoon into Thursday.

SHORT TERM. (This Evening through Sunday) Issued at 336 PM EST Sat Mar 6 2021

Slightly cooler air arriving tonight to bring low temperatures near if not cooler than last night with clear skies and light winds allowing strong radiational cooling. Temps should rebound on Sunday upper level ridging will already be underway with low level thermal profiles already warming. We should see highs in the lower 40s NE to near/just above 50 Sunday.

LONG TERM. (Sunday Night through Saturday) Issued at 336 PM EST Sat Mar 6 2021

Dramatic warmup commences for the first several days of this period with models likely underdoing degree of warming, especially into Tues/Weds. Overall consensus continues to be high than much of the guidance with highs for much of the area into the 60s and frankly Wednesday would stand the best chance of making a run well into the 60s if cloud cover is delayed any. Winds may be something to contend with late Weds AM into Weds PM if same conditions materialize with BUFKIT data suggesting gust potential of 35 to 40 kts which would would be edging close to advisory criteria. winds have been increased slightly for now.

With regards to precip chances . influx of low level moisture will occur ahead of the stalled longwave trough to the west of the area with PWATS eventually approaching/exceeding 1" across much of the area by Weds afternoon and lingering into at least Thurs night. Models begin to diverge, especially Fri into Sat in handling of northern stream wave and cut off upper level low with GFS more aggressive/faster in bringing the cut off low northeast by the weekend vs EC slower in ejecting the low with ridging take place again behind this late week system. Pops continue to bounce around around mid chc to low likely. Consensus seems to be let the blend of models as it with likely pops moving in Weds night and chc pops Weds as well as Thurs into Thurs night. If GFS is correct pops would need to linger longer and QPF would be much higher vs EC more subdued. Non zero chance for thunder in this window, but opted to leave out for now.

AVIATION. (For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Sunday Night) Issued at 1230 AM EST Sun Mar 7 2021

VFR conditions are expected at the TAF sites as high pressure lingers over the Great Lakes. Winds will be light and variable under partly to mostly sunny skies.

IWX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. IN . NONE. MI . NONE. OH . NONE. LM . NONE.
