Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Northern Indiana 714 PM EDT Thu Aug 6 2020

SYNOPSIS. Issued at 230 PM EDT Thu Aug 6 2020

Dry with a slow warming trend through Saturday followed by warm and humid weather Sunday through much of next week. Highs will be in the 80s. Isolated storms are possible Sunday afternoon with additional storms at times continuing through midweek.

SHORT TERM. (Tonight through Saturday) Issued at 230 PM EDT Thu Aug 6 2020

Sfc ridge holds firm this period. Emerging height rises aloft signal more vigorous warming trend commencing Sun as developing return flow remains quite weak.

LONG TERM. (Sunday through Wednesday) Issued at 230 PM EDT Thu Aug 6 2020

Vigorous sw tracking through srn Canada begins this period. Ramping downstream warm advection envelopes expanding warm sector and with it considerable low level moisture return. While a discernible focusing mechanism absent in model guidance, substantial low level theta-e ridging amidst 20-25kt H85 flow suggest some isold storm risk exists Sun aftn as sfc heating pushes temps toward 90.

Far better prospects for showers/storms Mon either timed with arrival of upstream convective remnants/MCV and/or in tandem with aftn timed cold frontal passage tied to srn Canada upper low. In either case a considerable unstable airmass should present along with adequate deep layer shear to substantiate some severe threat esp if potential early day storms can hold west.

Tail end of this frontal boundary expected to stall through the wrn OH valley and of which may refire again later Tue assuming favorable destabilization. Med range guidance continues to oscillate with placement of frontal zone and will hedge with lower bound of potential probs as contributing effects of likely MCS late Mon favor more srn solution Tue.

Thereafter placement of frontal drape along nrn extent of flat/srn plains centered upper ridge the primary unknown as it drives episodic convection through day 8 (Thu).

AVIATION. (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Friday Evening) Issued at 708 PM EDT Thu Aug 6 2020

VFR conditions persist. Cu will quickly dissipate once again after sunset with clearing skies, though there may be a few passing high clouds. Perhaps a better chance for some ground fog in the morning, but should not impact terminals. Scattered cumulus will develop again by Friday afternoon. Winds will be light and variable, then become easterly Friday.

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.
