Synopsis...Current Surface Map, [2nd Source TWC], Yesterday's U.S. Highs, Lows
THE HOOSIER STATE SAW A RETURN TO MORE SEASONAL TEMPERATURES WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AFTER SEVERAL DAYS BELOW NORMAL. READINGS CLIMBED INTO THE LOWER 80S AT MOST LOCATIONS. SKIES WERE MOSTLY SUNNY STATEWIDE TOO. TONIGHT WILL BE MOSTLY CLEAR OVER NORTH AND CENTRAL SECTIONS AND PARTLY CLOUDY IN THE FAR SOUTH. A WEAK RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER INDIANA WILL DRIFT SLOWLY EASTWARD. HOWEVER IT SHOULD PROVIDE ONE MORE DAY OF DRY WEATHER OVER CENTRAL AND NORTHERN SECTIONS ON THURSDAY. LOW TEMPERATURES TONIGHT WILL RANGE FROM 60 TO 65 AND HIGH TEMPERATURES ON THURSDAY WILL BE IN THE MIDDLE 80S. AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IN THE UPPER ATMOSPHERE OVER THE CENTRAL U.S. WILL DRIFT TOWARDS THE OHIO VALLEY NEXT FEW DAYS. THIS SYSTEM MAY PRODUCE A FEW THUNDERSTORMS LATE THURSDAY OVER SOUTHWEST SECTIONS OF OUR STATE. THEN WE CAN EXPECT A BETTER CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS STATE WIDE BY FRIDAY. $$ JEH/CS IMPORTANT NOTICE...THIS WILL BE THE LAST ISSUANCE OF THIS PRODUCT.
