NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
416 PM EDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Update... 
the aviation section has been updated below. 


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 252 PM EDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Cold Canadian air will invade central Indiana tonight in the wake of 
a strong cold front bringing a killing freeze to the area. In 
addition...an upper low will move into southeastern Indiana this 
evening and result in scattered showers with a change over to snow 
expected by early evening. A Few Lake effect snow showers will 
linger overnight across northwestern parts of central 
Indiana...otherwise the snow showers will be ending. In addition to 
the cold...windy conditions will result in wind chills in the teens. 


Strong high pressure will be building across the area Saturday and 
Sunday resulting in little cloud cover but continued well below 
normal temperatures. Monday will see temperatures return to close to 
normal as southwest flow commences on the back side of the high. As 
moisture increases and a cold front approaches from the west...there 
will be chances of showers early Tuesday through Wednesday night. 


&& 


Near term /tonight/... 


Issued at 252 PM EDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Main challenge tonight will be on precipitation type...coverage and 
timing as well as temperatures and wind chills as a deepening upper 
trough closes off over southeastern Indiana at 00z Saturday before 
quickly moving to the mountains of eastern Tennessee by 06z Saturday. 


Regarding precipitation...the rain showers should be in the process 
of changing over to snow per BUFKIT as the new forecast begins. By 
00z this evening...it should all be snow per BUFKIT. Southeastern 
parts of the forecast should see the most coverage as the upper low 
settles across that area this evening. Our northwestern counties 
could see some lake effect snow showers as well with deep north 
boundary layer flow to 45 knots. The rest of the area should just 
see isolated to scattered snow showers on the back end of the 
departing upper Low. Lake effect snow could go on all until 06z or so 
until model soundings show drier air and slightly lower winds. 
Otherwise...the threat for snow should be over around midnight. Do 
not see any threat for accumulation with Road temperatures still in 
the middle to upper 40s. Skies should be clearing overnight as well. 


Regarding temperatures and winds...winds should stay up all night 
based on mesoscale model soundings with evening gusts to 35 miles per hour and 
overnight gusts to 25 miles per hour. With such strong cold air 
advection...prefer colder 12z GFS MOS...although maybe not quite as 
cold with winds staying up. This blend would result in a hard freeze 
with overnight lows in the middle to upper 20s. There is even a small 
chance we could break the November 1 record low of 24 degrees. 
Trick or treat temperatures will be dropping through the 30s with 
wind chills in the 20s and possibly even upper teens. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Monday/... 


Issued at 252 PM EDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Main focus for the short term will be temperatures. 


Models and ensembles agree that strong high pressure will be 
building across the area Saturday through Sunday. Meanwhile...model 
relative humidity time sections were showing the column drying on Saturday morning 
with only some increase in high level moisture on Sunday as cirrus 
is expected to spill over top a sharp Mississippi Valley upper ridge 
aloft. Should also see increase in warm advection middle clouds Sunday 
night and Monday as southwest low level flow increases ahead of an 
approaching frontal system. 


MOS temperatures are close throughout the short term with moderating 
trends looking good. Saturday will continue to be well below normal 
with afternoon highs only in the lower to middle 40s. 
Meanwhile...another hard freeze is in store Saturday night. This 
will only be significant in unlikely event that we do not see a hard 
freeze tonight. Then...southwest flow will allow temperatures to 
moderate and become near normal by Monday with highs in the middle 50s 
to around 60 degrees on tap. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
issued at 227 PM EDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Given relatively high uncertainty...the superblend initialization 
was accepted for most items. 


An upper trough will move through the area during the long 
term...but models differ on how fast it exits the area. Also...00z 
European model (ecmwf) and 12z differ extensively on how an upper low is handled 
across the southwest USA. Thus confidence is low in long term. 


A cold front will slowly move across the region Monday night into 
Wednesday...and this will keep chances for rain in the forecast 
during that time. High pressure should move in for the end of the 
week so went dry then. 


Temperatures look to remain near average to above average for most 
of the period...but they will cool down by Friday. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for the 31/2100z taf update/... 


Issued at 414 PM EDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Update... 
MVFR conditions and strong winds continue. 


Previous discussion... 
MVFR conditions through first half of the period...with VFR for 
second half. Gusty winds throughout...with strongest gusts before 
06z. 


Secondary surface trough will move through the sites this afternoon. 
Wind gusts will increase as this passes with gusts over 30kt common. 
Scattered to numerous showers will move across the area. As 
temperatures fall...some snow showers could mix in at all sites. 


Heavier snow showers from Lake Michigan may impact klaf and reduce 
visibility to IFR briefly...but confidence is too low to add to the 
taf at this time. 


As system moves east overnight conditions will improve to VFR. Am 
going pessimistic in keeping cloud cover in through the night as 
models may clear things out too fast. 


Saturday will see VFR conditions with wind gusts near 20kt as high 
pressure builds in.
