   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0051
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0258 AM CST SUN FEB 02 2014

   AREAS AFFECTED...NE IND AND NRN OH

   CONCERNING...HEAVY SNOW 

   VALID 020858Z - 021300Z

   SUMMARY...HEAVY SNOWFALL WILL BE LIKELY ACROSS PARTS OF NERN IND AND
   NRN OH OVER THE NEXT 2 TO 4 HOURS. SNOWFALL RATES OF UP TO 1 INCH
   PER HOUR MAY OCCUR IN THE HEAVIER BANDS OF PRECIPITATION.

   DISCUSSION...THE LATEST RADAR SHOWS A LARGE AREA OF PRECIPITATION
   EXTENDING FROM SRN IL NEWD ACROSS MOST OF IND INTO NRN OH. THIS
   SWATH OF PRECIPITATION IS LOCATED AHEAD OF A TROUGH NEAR 850 MB THAT
   IS MOVING EWD ACROSS THE LOWER OH VALLEY. LIFT IS LIKELY BEING
   ENHANCED ON THE SRN EDGE OF A MID-LEVEL JET EXTENDING FROM NRN IND
   NEWD INTO SW ONTARIO AND ON THE SRN EDGE OF THE STRONGER LOW-LEVEL
   FLOW. AT THE SFC...WINDS ARE NORTH TO NORTHWESTERLY ACROSS CNTRL IND
   AND NRN OH WHICH SHOULD HELP TEMPS DROP INTO THE UPPER 20S F OVER
   THE NEXT FEW HOURS. AS THE HEAVIER BANDS MOVE FROM EAST OF THE
   INDIANAPOLIS METRO NEWD ACROSS NRN OH...THE ENHANCED LIFT COMBINED
   WITH COOLING SFC TEMPS SHOULD RESULT IN SNOWFALL RATES OF UP TO 1
   INCH PER HOUR WITH LOCALLY HIGHER RATES POSSIBLE. THE POTENTIAL FOR
   HEAVY SNOWFALL SHOULD CONTINUE THROUGH DAYBREAK ACROSS NCNTRL OH.
