Short Range - IN

Conditions look to remain dry throughout most of the short range period as flow is relatively baroclinic throughout the state. 850 temperatures do show a warming trend through Saturday as temperatures go from approximately -6C across the entire state to above freezing by the end of the time period.

Chances for precipitation over S. Indiana begin to develop by Saturday as warm air advection from a warm frontal passage provides necessary rising motion for precipitation. Isentropic analysis at 305K late Saturday night shows some positive pressure advection as well as rising motion to the east of Indiana and across the southernmost part of the state.
