NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Indianapolis in 
1027 PM EDT Thursday Aug 28 2014 


Update... 


Aviation section has been updated below. 


&& 


Synopsis... 
issued at 331 PM EDT Thursday Aug 28 2014 


Dry and less humid weather will be short lived as a warm front 
returns...placing central Indiana back into a warm and humid airmass 
with multiple opportunities for showers and thunderstorms through 
the Holiday weekend. Drier weather is expected by the middle of next 
week as high pressure builds into the Midwest. 


&& 


Near term /tonight/... 
issued at 949 PM EDT Thursday Aug 28 2014 


Although instability across the forecast area is essentially 
none...decaying convective showers/isolated storms may be able to 
make the far western forecast area before dissipating 
completely...so will add a slight chance pop until 06z across the 
west. Otherwise...forecast in good shape. Made a few tweaks to min 
temperatures...mainly upward...based on latest hourly numerical guidance 
and dewpoint trends. Previous discussions follow. 


Issued at 713 PM EDT Thursday Aug 28 2014 


Have confined 15 pop to the far SW corner of the forecast area as 
there is still some threat of convective development occurring as 
outflow from convection near Evansville approaches Knox County. 
This should only be a threat for a couple more hours however 
before loss of heating ends the thunder threat. Previous 
discussion follows. 


Issued at 331 PM EDT Thursday Aug 28 2014 


Pleasant afternoon in progress as much of the forecast area feeling 
the influence of high pressure passing through the Great Lakes. 
Temperatures were generally in the 80s...but most areas continued to enjoy 
a break from the muggy conditions of the last week or so. 


Frontal boundary nearly stationary across the lower Ohio Valley this 
afternoon...and scattered convection has developed over western 
Kentucky and southern Illinois in vicinity of the boundary and aided 
by weak forcing aloft. Axis of deeper precipitation water values remains 
across te lower Wabash valley...and could serve to generate isolated 
storms through early evening. Otherwise...the high pressure will 
maintain dry weather over the remainder of the forecast area 
tonight. Storms currently over eastern Iowa not expected to impact 
central Indiana as they move northeast into the western Great Lakes. 
Remnant cloud debris however may overspread northern portions of the 
forecast area later tonight. 


Temperatures...consmos looked reasonable with all guidance close. Expect 
lows generally in the 60s across the entire forecast area. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Sunday/... 
issued at 331 PM EDT Thursday Aug 28 2014 


Forecast challenges focus on precipitation chances as an unsettled pattern 
returns for the Holiday weekend. 


Low pressure tracking northeast into the upper Mississippi Valley on 
Friday will bring the frontal boundary back north and bring an end 
to our brief respite from the humid conditions. The boundary...along 
with the increasingly moist unstable airmass will serve as the 
catalyst for scattered convection Friday afternoon and 
evening...focused across the western counties initially then 
spreading northeast. As has been the case as of late...torrential 
rainfall and dangerous lightning will be the primary concerns with 
these storms. Convective coverage will diminish overnight as the 
front lifts north of the region. 


Model consensus remains solid in bringing a wave aloft into the 
Great Lakes by late Saturday with low pressure at the surface. A 
plume of rich tropical moisture will be pulled north into the Ohio 
Valley around the back side of the upper ridge centered over the 
southeast U S...setting the stage for numerous thunderstorms across 
central Indiana Saturday afternoon and night. With southwest flow 
through the low and middle levels and precipitation water values approaching 2 
inches...storms will again be heavy rainers with the potential for 
training echoes as well. Bl shear and helicity values remain low in 
the tropical airmass...with generally disorganized and chaotic 
storms largely remaining subsevere. Will continue with likely probability of precipitation 
focused on Saturday afternoon and evening over the forecast area. 


As the low shifts east into Quebec with the upper wave Sunday...the 
ridge aloft will flatten a bit...resulting in the deeper moisture 
plume shifting south closer to the Ohio River. That combined with 
subtle surface ridging in the wake of the low should lead to less 
convective coverage as the day progresses...particularly over the 
northern half of the forecast area as slightly drier air arrives. 
Scattered probability of precipitation remain warranted however as model soundings do show a 
continued unstable airmass for convection to feed off of along with 
any leftover outflows from storms Saturday. 


Temperatures...generally preferred the warmer mavmos for highs Friday... 
then undercut MOS on Saturday and Sunday with potential for more 
clouds/precip. Lows will return to around 70 degrees with the 
resumption of the higher humidity values. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
issued at 331 PM EDT Thursday Aug 28 2014 


Ensembles indicate a mostly unsettled weather pattern will continue 
as one trough moves across the region early in the period...only to 
be followed by another...possibly deeper trough Monday of next week. 
This will allow for daily chances for precipitation as upper 
disturbances rippling through the flow interact with a frontal 
system. Will continue to carry probability of precipitation through Tuesday night...then it 
appears a strong enough ridge will build over the region by middle 
week...bringing drier weather to the region through Wednesday and Thursday. 
Allblend initialization appears to handle this pattern well. 


&& 


Aviation /discussion for the 290300z kind taf update/... 
issued at 1027 PM EDT Thursday Aug 28 2014 


Minor tweaks made to kind taf to better match current conditions. 
No other changes needed at this time. 


Previous aviation discussion follows... 
VFR through the period. A few diurnal base clouds may linger into 
early evening. Otherwise...only expect mainly scattered middle clouds 
and scattered to broken high clouds overnight. Some models hint at 
MVFR fog developing late tonight at khuf and kbmg as dewpoints rise. 
There was no fog last night and with pressure gradient a little 
stronger will leave it out for now. 


A warm front across the middle Mississippi and lower Ohio valleys will 
move northeast across our region Friday. There will be widely 
scattered thunderstorms with a little better chance occurring at 
klaf as an upper disturbance moves from northern Illinois into the 
Great Lakes. Will mention thunderstorms in the vicinity at klaf after 18z. However chances 
are too low elsewhere to mention thunderstorms in the vicinity this far out. 


Light east winds overnight will become south of 8 to 10 knots on 
Friday.

Ind watches/warnings/advisories...none.
