Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
1243 am EDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015 


Update... 


The aviation section has been updated below. 


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 252 PM EDT Monday Jul 27 2015 


A weak front could bring some showers and thunderstorms to the area 
tonight. A stronger front will bring more rain on Wednesday...but 
then conditions dry off until the weekend. Hot and humid conditions 
will give way to seasonable temperatures behind the midweek front. 


&& 


Near term /rest of tonight/... 
issued at 935 PM EDT Monday Jul 27 2015 


Update... 
a few isolated showers/thunderstorms will linger through midnight 
and should then taper off with loss of heating. So...no changes to 
current forecast. Current temperatures across the area are generally in 
the middle to upper 70s. Overnight lows in the upper 60s/low 70s 
still look reasonable. Updated grids have been sent. 


Previous discussion... 
the convection should die out with loss of heating this evening. 
Thus went slight chance probability of precipitation all areas through midnight. 


With light winds and a moist atmosphere...expect some fog and 
stratus to develop overnight. Added patchy fog to the grids and kept 
sky cover up. 


Stayed near to a little above MOS for low temperatures given 
expected cloud cover. 


&& 


Short term.../Tuesday through Thursday/ 
issued at 252 PM EDT Monday Jul 27 2015 


Focus is on chances for rain. Models are close enough that a blend 
was used. 


Big question for Tuesday is to mention isolated convection or not. 
Heights rise aloft and middle level temperatures warm. However old 
boundary will remain in the area along with hot and humid 
conditions. 


While cannot absolutely rule out some pop up storms...feel that the 
rising middle level temperatures should help keep coverage below the 20 
percent threshold for mentioning. Will go dry Tuesday...but 
confidence is not high. 


A cold front will approach the area Tuesday night. NAM seems a bit 
fast by bringing in rain during the evening. However European model (ecmwf) and 
Canadian bring in some rain by 12z. Thus continued to go dry most of 
the night with low probability of precipitation northwest late. 


Cold front will move through on Wednesday. With moisture and 
instability around...went high end chance category probability of precipitation all areas. 


Front will be out of the area by late Wednesday night so went dry 
after midnight. High pressure will build in on Thursday with cooler 
and drier air. 


Went a little below MOS on Tuesday some areas with the wet ground 
and the potential morning stratus. Went with a blend most other 
periods. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 


Issued at 209 PM EDT Monday Jul 27 2015 


High pressure remains in control over the region for the first few 
days of this period where conditions will return to dry and less 
humid conditions. Also near seasonal temperatures will occur. After 
this brief period of dry weather through Saturday...rain chances 
return to the forecast for possibly the second half of the weekend 
as ensembles show two waves moving through the upper flow...first 
on Saturday night...an another Sunday night into Monday as a 
surface boundary drops down into our northern counties. Have thus 
included some low chances for showers and storms here during this 
time. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for the 28/06z tafs/... 
issued at 1243 am EDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015 


MVFR or worse at times overnight...otherwise VFR from late morning 
on. 


A stationary front over Ohio Valley will drift north across central 
Indiana later today as an upper ridge of high pressure over the 
central U.S. Builds towards the Ohio Valley. 


Areas of MVFR or IFR fog and stratus will be the rule overnight. 
Will take outlying sites down to IFR and leave ind MVFR. Expect 
conditions to fluctuate as often occurs in such situations. 
Otherwise VFR with scattered cumulus and broken high clouds will be the 
rule rest of the time. 


Winds will be less than 10kt throughout the period and may be 
light and variable at times. 


&& 


Ind watches/warnings/advisories...none.
