Focus: Largely clear skies for Indiana over the duration of the short term

High pressure is building into the state from the northern plains along the back side of a large trough. Due to this trough, we will see cold flow out of the Northwest for the next several days. With this, cold air advection and weak negative vorticity advection will result in sinking motion for the duration of the period. In conjunction with mostly dry air, skies should stay mostly clear, revealing a strange, light emitting ball in the sky known in other parts of the world as the sun. Citizens of the state should not be alarmed, the sun is a good thing. It provides the energy necessary for life on this planet.

The cold Northwesterly flow over the relatively warm lake will result in a chance for lake effect snow showers in Northern Indiana, mostly during the Wednesday night period. Friday, a chance of rain will move into the southern tip of the state as a system moves to the south.
