NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
1020 PM EDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


Update... 


The aviation section has been updated below. 


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 345 PM EDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


Dry and pleasant weather is expected through Friday as high pressure 
drifts east of the region. A frontal boundary will set up across the 
lower Great Lakes on Saturday with warm and humid air south of the 
boundary over central Indiana. As multiple waves track along the 
front...chances for thunderstorms and potentially severe weather 
will increase over the weekend. Cooler air will return for much of 
next week as a deep upper trough once again develops over the 
eastern half of the country. 


&& 


Near term /rest of tonight/... 
issued at 958 PM EDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


Update...minor tweaks made to current gridds mainly to add in a 
little more high clouds overnight over western and central sections 
based on current satellite. Temperatures could be a tad warmer in a 
few places...but models generally favor current forecast. 


Portion of previous near term discussion follows... 


Despite progressively drier air and subsidence aloft overspreading 
the region...presence of low level thermal trough contributing to 
the cumulus field. Cumulus coverage will gradually diminish into early evening 
as stronger heating is lost and the subsidence aloft eventually wins 
out. Rest of the night will be quiet and refreshingly cool once 
again. Generally clear skies expected overnight...with potential for 
thin high cirrus from convection over the upper Mississippi Valley 
to invade the region from the northwest towards daybreak. 


Temperatures...with the center of the high nearby and clear skies for much 
of the night...good setup for radiational cooling in place. Expect a 
decent split between rural and urban areas on temperatures. Normal cool 
spots are likely going to make a run at 50 degrees late tonight. 
Light easterly flow off the city will keep kind warmer. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Sunday/... 
issued at 345 PM EDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


Forecast challenges are plentiful...as the current stretch of dry 
pleasant weather gives way to a much more active pattern with 
potentially multiple opportunities for severe weather over the 
weekend. 


The short term period will be highlighted by a transition to a 
familiar theme this Summer...as northwest flow aloft develops 
between the flattened yet strong ridge over the southern High Plains 
and an anomalously strong upper low tracking across the Canadian 
prairies. The upper low will move southeast over the weekend... 
eventually arriving over the Great Lakes by Sunday. In doing 
so...the upper wave will assist in forcing the ridge west into The 
Four Corners region while amplifying our old friend the eastern 
trough. 


By far the pick day of the short term will be Friday with the region 
still firmly under the control of slowly departing high pressure. 
Expect a good deal of sunshine with a slow but steady increase in 
middle and high level clouds as warm frontal convection takes place to 
the northwest of the forecast area. Not out of the question that 
some of this convection may make it into the northern Wabash valley 
prior to sunset Friday...albeit in a weakened condition as it moves 
into a drier and more stable airmass over central Indiana. Storm 
coverage is likely to increase overnight Friday however as a low 
level jet noses into the middle Mississippi Valley...with moisture and 
elevated instability increasing across the northern half of the 
Hoosier state. Will carry chance probability of precipitation Friday night mainly over the 
northern counties with lower probability of precipitation further south. 


Other than some initial convective debris Saturday morning...surge 
of warm and increasingly humid air will quickly advect into the Ohio 
Valley...making the pleasant conditions experienced today and 
tomorrow a long distant memory. Convective redevelopment Saturday 
afternoon is there...but some questions do exist that make 
confidence lower than desired at this point on severe weather 
potential prior to Saturday evening. Strong heating over the region 
south of a frontal boundary will support a highly unstable 
environment with progressively deeper moisture arriving during the 
day. However...models continue to advertise a rather Stout cap with 
700mb temperatures at 12-14c well into the afternoon which is likely to 
limit coverage and intensity of storms over the region. Expect 
scattered storms...with a potential uptick in coverage towards 
evening as the cap weakens. 


Highest confidence in potential for storms and severe weather comes 
Saturday night as the cap completely erodes for much of the area 
while a strong surface wave tracks along the boundary. With abundant 
instability...exceptionally deep moisture with precipitable waters  in excess of 2 
inches being fueled by the nocturnal low level jet and nice middle and 
upper level forcing available...signs point towards upward 
convective development impacting the forecast area overnight...most 
likely into an mesoscale convective system. The presence of deeper shear also lends itself 
to more organized robust convection with all modes of severe weather 
on The Table. Torrential rainfall and localized flooding will also 
be possible with the tropical airmass in place. Feel comfortable in 
introducing likely probability of precipitation Saturday night over the entire forecast 
area. 


Sunday forecast is highly conditional on what occurs Saturday night. 
While deeper moisture will be shifted to the southeast...stronger 
upper low will be arriving into the Great Lakes Sunday afternoon 
with renewed surface wave development. Available instability could 
be problematic...especially if expected convection Saturday night 
completely grunges out the airmass in its wake for much of Sunday. 
With that being said...the presence of renewed forcing aloft with 
the approach of the upper wave supports at the very least a 
continuation of the potential for thunderstorms and possibly another 
chance for severe weather. For now...will carry high chance probability of precipitation. 


Temperatures...generally trended towards mavmos guidance for temperatures 
throughout the period with the lone exception of Saturday. Mav seems 
overly aggressive in attempting to bring 90+ air into the southwest 
half of the forecast area. While 850mb temperatures of 21-22c noted on 
model consensus by Saturday afternoon...the arrival of an 
increasingly moist and humid airmass is not supportive of widespread 
90 degree weather... particularly if any scattered convection can 
fire as well. Undercut mav temperatures by 2-4 degrees across the board. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
issued at 156 PM EDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


At the beginning of the period there are some low chances for 
departing showers and thunderstorms due to a departing cold front 
Sunday night. And then surface high pressure looks to build in and 
provide dry and cooler than normal conditions across the area yet 
again. Temperatures will be well below average for most of the long 
term. Highs will be in the 70s through at least middle week. A fast 
moving short wave may approach and cross the area on Thursday and 
have included low chances at this time. Allblend guidance appeared 
to handle this forecast well...so no need to deviate too far from 
latest guidance. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for the 25/03z taf update/... 
issued at 1020 PM EDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


No significant changes necessary. Previous discussion follows. 


Issued at 659 PM EDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


Largely VFR through the period. Some potential for MVFR visibilities 
in light fog tonight at the outlying sites. Will handle with tempo 
groups as fog may be transient in nature. 


Afternoon cumulus beginning to dissipate and skies should be mostly 
clear within the next few hours and remain so much of the night. 
This combined with light winds may promote some fog...but not 
expecting worse than MVFR at this time. 


Any fog will quickly burn off Friday morning. Some scattered cumulus 
and increasing middle cloud expected ahead of next system. 


Winds will be less than 10kt throughout the period.

Ind watches/warnings/advisories...none.
