Update... 
the aviation section has been updated below.

Synopsis... 
issued at 255 PM EDT Friday Mar 27 2015 


A strong high amplitude upper trough over the eastern U.S. Will 
produce near record low temperatures tonight and unseasonably cold 
temperatures through Saturday night. Temperatures will begin a slow 
moderation early next week as the upper trough moves on to the east 
and a more zonal upper flow sets up. 


A frontal system will bring chances of light rain Sunday afternoon 
and night. Another cold front will produce a chance of thunderstorms 
late Wednesday and Thursday of next week. An approaching warm front 
will produce a slight chance of showers by day 7. 


&& 


Near term /tonight and Saturday/... 
issued at 255 PM EDT Friday Mar 27 2015 


Arctic high pressure from the upper Midwest to the Central Plains 
will build towards Indiana by Saturday. Satellite currently shows 
lots of clouds and a few flurries across our region. But with 
sunset clouds should diminish quickly this evening. Model soundings 
indicate little in the way of clouds after 03z tonight. Will slow 
down clearing a little some areas this evening...but by late tonight 
all areas should be clear. Light winds...clearing skies and very 
cold air aloft will allow temperatures to drop to near record values 
in the middle to upper teens. Went close to a MOS blend on 
temperatures most areas. 


Saturday will be mostly sunny as high pressure builds into our 
area. Model soundings indicate a very dry airmass. Given the late 
March sunshine will lean towards the warmer mav temperatures on 
Saturday with highs from the middle 30s over northeast sections to 
the lower 40s in our southwest. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday night through Monday/... 
issued at 255 PM EDT Friday Mar 27 2015 


High pressure will begin to move off to the east Saturday 
night...and some warm advection will occur late Saturday night. 
Still a MOS blend in the lower 20s still look reasonable as there 
will be good radiational cooling Saturday night. 


On Sunday we can expect increasing clouds with a chance of rain 
Sunday afternoon as a cold front moves into our region. Models are a 
little more progressive as they end any chances of rain by late 
Sunday night. Models then move a weak high pressure area into the 
Ohio Valley by Monday. Will mention a chance of rain Sunday 
afternoon and evening. Some models hint at patchy fog late Sunday 
night. 


Highs will be in the middle 40s to middle 50s Sunday with lows in the 30s 
Sunday night. Monday will see highs in the 50s...except near 60 
across our southwest. 


&& 




Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
issued at 245 PM EDT Friday Mar 27 2015 


The extended timeframe begins with the forecast area under the 
influence of surface high pressure...northwest flow aloft...and an 
area of low pressure approaching the Great Lakes from the upper 
Midwest. As the low pressure passes to the north...winds strengthen 
to out of the southwest then west during the day allowing for a 
return to the 60s for most of the area. Better moisture and lift 
remains further north closer to the low. Thus...removed pop Monday 
night and Tuesday. 


Here is where the models differ drastically. 00z Euro digs the upper 
trough into the Middle-Atlantic States...dropping the associated 
frontal boundary south into the southeastern states. 12z GFS however 
spreads the upper wave across the northeast states...allowing a 
stationary boundary to be draped east to west just north of the 
forecast area Tuesday night and Wednesday...before retreating north 
as a warm front Wednesday afternoon and evening. Stuck close to the 
regional initialization during this period of uncertainty...which 
includes increased pop Wednesday and Wednesday night owing to warm air advection 
showers and an approaching cold frontal boundary boundary. The 00z 
Euro is approximately 6 hours quicker with this feature and impacts. 
With some instability available...currently expect thunder as this 
frontal boundary pushes across the area. For Friday...00z Euro 
brings a strong storm system into the Great Lakes/Ohio River valley 
region. Not too keen on this occurring and the 12z GFS 
differs...filtering high pressure in behind the aforementioned cold 
front. Decided to drop probability of precipitation from chance into the slight chance 
category since confidence in Euro solution not high. 


High temperatures in the middle 50s to middle 60s characterize the 
extended timeframe. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for the 272100z kind taf update/... 
issued at 419 PM EDT Friday Mar 27 2015 


Scattered light snow showers in progress in the vicinity of 
kind...but appears any impact on ceiling or visibility will be brief 
or negligible. These showers should end with sunset. 


No significant changes made to the forecast at this time. Previous 
discussion follows. 


Borderline MVFR/VFR conditions still holding on across most of the 
terminals early this afternoon. Decided to keep all sites VFR as we 
have seen some upward movement in the ceiling thus far and will 
continue to see some gradual improvement into the middle-afternoon 
hours. Winds have not been consistently gusting yet so decided to 
back off on the gusts for 2 to 3 hours...staying with sustained 
northerly winds from 10 to 13 knots until around 18/1900z. Then the 
gusts will be reinstated. Also...do not be surprised to see a few 
snow flurries cross the taf sites. These are almost impossible to 
time for arrival and departure and from what we have seen here at 
ind...the impacts should be minimal with most visibilities remaining 
at or above 6 sm. Laf would possibly be the only exception to that 
as visibilities have recently dropped as low as 2sm...but continue 
to bounce between 2 and 6 sm. Confidence not high that the low 
visibilities will continue. Currently...do not plan on including in laf taf. 


Expect skies to clear this evening and remain clear through Saturday 
as high pressure filters in from the northwest. Strong northerly 
winds will begin to subside overnight...leading to 5 to 10 knot 
winds for Saturday.
