AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE INDIANAPOLIS IN
655 PM EDT WED JUL 30 2014

.UPDATE...

THE AVIATION SECTION HAS BEEN UPDATED BELOW.

&&

.SYNOPSIS...
ISSUED AT 308 PM EDT WED JUL 30 2014

CENTRAL INDIANA WILL CONTINUE TO BE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF LOW
PRESSURE CENTERED OVER EASTERN ONTARIO WHILE A LARGE RIDGE OF HIGH
PRESSURE RESIDES OVER THE WESTERN STATES. THIS PATTERN WILL RESULT
IN SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES THROUGH THE PERIOD AND DAILY
CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THE FIRST
HALF OF THE WEEKEND. HOWEVER...CONDITIONS WILL BE DRY FOR MOST OF
THE EXTENDED AS AFOREMENTIONED RIDGE MOVES CLOSER TO CENTRAL INDIANA.

&&

.NEAR TERM /REST OF THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH TONIGHT/...
ISSUED AT 308 PM EDT WED JUL 30 2014

WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS HAVE DEVELOPED ACROSS THE CENTRAL CWA ALONG
AN ASSOCIATED SHORT WAVE MOVING THROUGH THE UPPER TROUGH. ANTICIPATE
THIS ACTIVITY TO CONTINUE THROUGH 00Z AROUND WHICH IT WILL GRADUALLY
DISSIPATE WITH LOSS OF DAYTIME HEATING.

FOR TONIGHT SKIES WILL BEGIN TO CLEAR OUT AND CONDITIONS SHOULD BE
DRY. MAY HAVE SOME PATCHY FOG IN SOME OF THE OUTLYING AREAS...BUT
DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE WIDESPREAD ENOUGH TO MENTION IN THE FORECAST
AT THIS TIME. MOS BLEND OF LOW TEMPS APPEARS REASONABLE YIELDING
LOWS IN THE UPPER 50S.

&&

.SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
ISSUED AT 308 PM EDT WED JUL 30 2014

THE LOW PRES OVER EASTERN ONTARIO WILL REMAIN SOMEWHAT STATIONARY
THROUGH FRIDAY AND FINALLY PUSH OFF TO THE EAST ON FRIDAY
EVENING...DRAGGING A COLD FRONT THROUGH THE AREA. THURSDAY WILL BE
THE DRIEST DAY OF THE PERIOD WITH ONLY A SLIGHT CHANCE POSSIBLE.
(DIURNALLY CHARGED). BY FRIDAY CHANCES RAMP UP TO HIGH END
CHANCES...BORDERING LIKELY. CONFIDENCE IS FAIRLY HIGH IN THIS
EVENT OF A FRONTAL PASSAGE...BUT MODELS HAVE NOT BEEN VERY
CONSISTENT...SO REFRAINED FROM GOING MUCH HIGHER AT THIS MOMENT. A
SECONDARY FRONT IS LOOKING MORE LIKELY ON SATURDAY AS
WELL...PROVIDING ADDITIONAL POPS FOR THE AREA BEFORE THE RIDGE
BUILDS BACK OVER THE REGION.

A WEAK WARMING TREND WILL BE IN STORE FOR CENTRAL INDIANA AS WE BREAK
OUT OF THE NW FLOW...HOWEVER TEMPS STILL WILL BE LAGGING A FEW
DEGREES BELOW CLIMO.

&&

.LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
ISSUED AT 251 AM EDT WED JUL 30 2014

LONG TERM FOCUS WILL BE ON LIFTING TROUGH ENDING RAIN AND WARMING
TEMPERATURES.

ONE LAST SHORT WAVE THAT WILL DEEPEN THE TROUGH OVER GREAT LAKES
FRIDAY FINALLY LIFTS EAST BY SATURDAY NIGHT. UPPER RIDGING
OVERTAKING THE GREAT LAKES AND OHIO VALLEY FOR SUNDAY THROUGH
MOST OF TUESDAY TRANSLATES TO DRIER AND WARMER PERIOD FOR CENTRAL
INDIANA. HOWEVER...A COMBINATION OF WEAK SHORT WAVE ENERGY DROPPING
SOUTHEAST INTO THE EASTERN CANADIAN TROUGH BY TUESDAY COUPLED WITH
SOME MONSOONAL MOISTURE LIFTING OVER THE TOP OF THE ROCKIES UPPER
RIDGE SPELL A RETURN TO POTENTIAL STORMINESS MIDWEEK NEXT WEEK AS
THE SURFACE BOUNDARY WAVERS BETWEEN THE LOWER GREAT LAKES AND THE
I-70 CORRIDOR.

WITH THE TROUGH LIFTING OUT...TEMPERATURES RETURN TO SEASONAL
VALUES AND AS RIDGE AND DRYING TAKE FURTHER HOLD...A RETURN TO
ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES LATE THIS PERIOD.

&&

.AVIATION /DISCUSSION FOR THE 31/00Z TAFS/...
ISSUED AT 655 PM EDT WED JUL 30 2014

VFR THROUGH THE FIRST PORTION OF THE EVENING...AND AGAIN DURING THE
DAY TOMORROW.

IND AND BMG WILL BE ANOTHER HOUR OR TWO BEFORE THEY ARE FULLY CLEAR
OF CONVECTIVE SHOWERS. WILL CARRY VCTS AT IND AND VCSH AT BMG WHERE
ECHOES HAVE BEEN SIGNIFICANTLY WEAKER AND NO LIGHTNING DETECTED.

EXPECTING AT LEAST SOME MVFR FOG AT MOST SITES TONIGHT...ESPECIALLY
THOSE THAT SAW PRECIP TODAY. DEPENDING ON DEGREE OF CLEARING...WOULD
NOT BE SURPRISED TO SEE SOME IFR AS WELL. LAMP GUIDANCE...SREF
PROBABILTIES...EXPERIMENTAL SATELLITE DATA AND LOCAL FOG METHOD ALL
HINT AT THIS POSSIBILITY. FOR NOW...WILL ONLY GO IFR AT BMG WHERE
LAMP IS MOST AGGRESSIVE...BUT WILL INCLUDE BCFG MENTION AT ALL SITES
TO AT LEAST INTRODUCE THE POSSIBILITY.

FOG WILL BURN OFF IN TYPICAL DIURNAL FASHION TOMORROW MORNING.
CANNOT RULE OUT AN ISOLATED SHOWER OR STORM AGAIN TOMORROW...BUT FAR
TOO UNCERTAIN FOR ANY MENTION AT THIS TIME.

WINDS WILL BE BELOW 10KT THROUGH THE PERIOD...GENERALLY OUT OF THE
WEST OR SOUTHWEST.

&&

.IND WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...NONE.
