.Forecast Update...
Issued at 1034 AM EST Sun Dec 5 2021

Radar has been showing scattered echos already this morning, but 
surface observations have not been observing much rain reaching the 
ground. Dew point depressions across central Indiana are still in 
excess of 10 degrees as of midmorning. Dew points have been rising 
through the morning but there remains quite a bit of dry air to 
overcome before the rain becomes more widespread. Have expanded 
slight PoPs across the western half of the forecast area for the 
morning hours but more widespread rain is still not expected until 
later in the day. 

Winds have already begun gusting to around 25 mph at times this 
morning. Did up winds into tonight to better reflect the higher 
winds throughout the passage of this system.
