.Short Term...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 252 AM EDT Fri Sep 30 2022

* Sunshine and a little warmer today. Increasing clouds tonight.

Clear skies and cool conditions were across central Indiana early 
this morning. High pressure extended southwest from Lower Michigan 
into Illinois, while Hurricane Ian was southeast of South Carolina. 
Some clouds were developing southwest of Lake Erie and moving 
southwest. 

Quiet weather will continue across the area today as high pressure 
and some upper ridging remains in control. Some clouds moving 
southwest from Lake Erie may reach northeastern portions of the 
forecast area early in the day, but these should dissipate with 
mixing this morning. Otherwise expect plentiful sunshine today. Some 
high clouds from Ian may sneak into the eastern forecast area late 
in the day. Temperatures will warm enough aloft that cumulus will be 
less likely to pop up today.

Sunshine will boost temperatures into the upper 60s to lower 70s. 
Winds may gust over 15 mph east this afternoon as the pressure 
gradient begins to tighten up a bit as Ian moves closer to shore.

High clouds will increase tonight from the east as weakening Ian 
moves farther inland during the night. The continuing gradual 
tightening of the pressure gradient will keep winds up to around 10 
mph tonight, especially east. 

Low temperatures will be in the 40s, with warmest readings in the 
east where cloud cover will be higher.

Three tornadoes spawned by the remnants of Hurricane Gracie killed 12
persons at Ivy VA. (The Weather Channel)
...1970...
A nineteen month drought in southern California came to a climax. The
drought, which made brush and buildings tinder dry, set up the worst fire
conditions in California history as hot Santa Anna winds sent the
temperature soaring to 105 degrees at Los Angeles, and to 97 degrees at San
Diego. During that last week of September whole communities of interior San
Diego County were consumed by fire. Half a million acres were burned, and
the fires caused fifty million dollars damage. (David Ludlum)

The temperature at Wichita Falls TX soared to 108 degrees to establish a
record for September. (The Weather Channel)
...1986...
Thunderstorms, which had inundated northern sections of Oklahoma with heavy
rain, temporarily shifted southward producing 4 to 8 inches rains from
Shawnee to Stilwell. Baseball size hail and 80 mph winds ripped through
parts of southeast Oklahoma City, and thunderstorm winds caused more than
half a million dollars damage at Shawnee. (Storm Data)
...1987...
Afternoon thunderstorms in Michigan produced hail an inch in diameter at
Pinckney, and wind gusts to 68 mph at Wyandotte. A thunderstorm in northern
