Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Northern Indiana 636 AM EST Sun Jan 26 2020

SYNOPSIS. Issued at 353 AM EST Sun Jan 26 2020

Areas of a light wintry mix of snow and freezing drizzle will continue early this morning. A light glaze has occurred that has made surfaces extremely slippery. Drizzle or light snow will continue later today for areas near the Michigan line. Otherwise, temperatures will remain mild for this time of year through next weekend. Little if any precipitation is forecast through Friday.

SHORT TERM. (Today and Tonight) Issued at 346 AM EST Sun Jan 26 2020

Temperatures had fallen to freezing or just below freezing near and south of Highway 30 in Indiana. Numerous accidents occurred in this area last night from Huntington up to near our office (North Webster) where black ice had developed. Sidewalks have become extremely slippery with the developing ice. Areas of freezing drizzle continued over parts of northern Indiana. Have kept the Winter Weather Advisory for freezing drizzle in effect in this area where little has changed since last night. In the bigger picture, the upper low had moved east to near Lake Ontario; however, plenty of energy in the form of weak trofs or upper level disturbances will continue to move south over the Upper Great Lakes region and bring chances for light drizzle or snow mainly north of the toll road later today through tonight. Very light snow or possibly very minor light ice accumulations are possible.

LONG TERM. (Monday through Saturday) Issued at 346 AM EST Sun Jan 26 2020

An amazingly mild meteorological winter (defined from Dec 1 to Feb 28/29) will continue through this upcoming week with little if any precipitation. South Bend has notched the 3rd warmest winter to date in 125 years through the first 8 weeks of winter. This warm pattern will continue with a high zonal flow over the area. Highs will be in the 30s, rising into the 40s next weekend with lows mostly in the 20s each night. No arctic air will be able to reach the area.

AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Monday Morning) Issued at 635 AM EST Sun Jan 26 2020

Drizzle/flurries persist across northeast Indiana early this morning. Precip rates are on the minimal side but a few more hours of freezing drizzle will be possible through 15Z as additional weak upper level short wave dives southeast across the southern Great Lakes. This wave may bring some better RH at snow production levels early this morning to allow some flurries to mix in with the drizzle. Persistent moist cyclonic flow will prevent any significant cig improvements this period, although may see trends to lower end MVFR cigs at terminals this afternoon as an axis of slightly drier low level air advects eastward from northern Illinois late morning into this afternoon. If this improvement does occur, it is possible terminals could trend back to IFR tonight as another upstream disturbance across Mid MS Valley approaches. Westerly winds in the 10 to 15 knot range are expected today as departing sfc reflection experiences some deepening across southeast Canada this afternoon.

IWX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. IN . Winter Weather Advisory until 9 AM EST this morning for INZ016>018-023>027-032>034.

MI . NONE. OH . NONE. LM . Small Craft Advisory until 11 PM EST this evening for LMZ043.

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.
